63L is approaching 4,000 cubic inches and 4,000 lb.-ft. torque! It's ZVEZDA's small block engine... although I like it's idle sound... their big block has 144L and is a radial with 7 banks of 6 cylinders each... 42 cylinders...

The Russians used 3 of the big boys in their high speed missile boats! And we thought PT boats were something with 3 tiny Packard/Merlin 1700 cube V12's...

There you go build a hot rod boat no drive train needed.

64Nailhead is right on with the Eaton Roadranger trans. You're going to spend many thousands on an appropriate trans and clutch to withstand 4,000 lb ft of torque. Then there's a driveshaft and differential....The weak link here will be tires, unless you plan to use tandem axles with 15" super singles. That much torque should break tires loose before a mechanical failure.

I doubt a school bus frame and suspension will hold that weight. Those chassis are rated for around 21,000 lbs gross and that engine already weighs half of that. My Cat 3406B weighed 4,000lbs. Add 1,000 lbs for clutch and trans and the front axle is already overloaded.

No clue what you have in mind to build for that engine, but it ain't going to be cheap.

Could use it to run a pump powering 2 massive vane motors turning the rear wheels with the wheel mounted right to the vane motor.

No clutch, driveshaft, transmission, differential, and could mount the engine in the middle right behind the driver/passenger for better weight distribution.

What vane motors I have no idea 1200rpm and 1000lbs per motor would make for a wild ride that could be controlled without many electronics. You might even be able to have regenerative breaking that fills a accumulatior to aid in acceleration. Just one of my crazy ideas.

Might as well do it right and turbocharge it up to 12,000 lb.-ft. of torque... have it driving a jet pump in a 21' boat...

Hopefully, this thread is just a joke and the OP was just kidding...
