Rebuilt Cummins 6B5.9-M Marine Engine $5000

I am selling the Cummins that I bought from Alabamaboater a while back.
I intended to install it into my boat but have since sold the boat, so the engine needs a new home. It's currently located in League City, Tx. I can deliver it if its close by.

The engine has gone through reconditioning that includes block stripped and phosphate treated, new pistons, rings, bearings, head resurfaced with valves and seats ground, valve springs tested and replaced as needed, rocker arms bushings checked, rebuilt injectors (new nozzles) and pump, new 12V starter and 105A alternator, rewired to include new temp sender and separate alarm, new oil pressure sender and separate alarm. The engine wiring harness is plug compatible with Mercury and Crusader. Heat exchanger and oil cooler cleaned and pressure tested. Exhaust boiled out and pressure checked. The parts were primed and painted prior to assembly. New hoses and clamps were used in assembly. The rear of the block, #6 cylinder, has the improved water outlet for cooling. A transmission oil cooler and bracket is include but not shown. The engine has a transmission adapter plate suitable for Velvet Drive or Hurth.

The engine has been run approximately 2 hours on a water brake dyno per Cummins break in procedure for the first 3 steps, to 75% power.

Upon pickup, I will start the engine prior to final payment so the buyer can verify the running condition. My hoist will load into a pickup or on to a car trailer. I cannot lift into a semi.

I have since found out the engine has the aftercooled pistons installed so it can be up powered to a 6bt or a 6bta config without having to replace them.

I need to sell it, so make an offer.
