Imagine that in one of those "Blast-O-leane" specials.

If that is a Continental, it will be 1790 ci (5.75 x 5.75). When in the Army, as a mechanic, I went to track vehicle school at Ft Benning, GA. The ones I worked on were in the M60 tanks and were all diesels (750 hp/1710 tq) but, the M88, tank retriever, used a gas version of it, that had fuel injection & twin turbo's that put out 1080 hp with close to 2000 tq. Although I didn't work on them, the earlier M47 & M48's had a NA 810/825 hp - 1560/1670 tq gas engines. All gas engines ran at 2800 rpm and diesels 2400.

I loved that part of my service.

According to Google when I looked it up the engine was a Maybach HL120.8500 made.
