    What model Galion?

    If it is a 118C with it's original engine, I would suggest it is a Cummins H743C-135 (2 valves per cylinder, 743 cu. in., construction equipment configuration, 135 hp)

    Unsure on the model

    I'm still unsure on what model the machine is, but as far as the engine I was leaning towards the 743 Cummins, now to try and find parts, I thank you very much for your help and information, the galion is a little out of my comfort zone haha thank you again

    I recently bought a Galion 118B with this engine in it. The serial number is on a plate on the timing chain cover. However it doesn't seem to help much, nobody has parts for these engines it seems.
