Guy put it in a oven till it came out slightly cherry red, welded it and put it back. Anelling. It was a good as new and lasted.
thank you i will have it welded. Several people have confirmed that this will work and I will run it on the left side since it runs cooler than the right side. Thank you.

Per my reading of a dump truck owner with the same engine.
Every winter he would drop the oil pan, replace the bearings.
Truck lasted him tell he retired.
That's one of many great stories that I've heard about this engine. There was a man who used a 534 in a gravel train. He said that it lasted 300,000 miles. It is an amazing engine. Thanks for sharing.
