I havent hit that many hours on 2 of them . The others dont have working hour meters . One that I picked up a 2cyl 100 cfm from my competition for 100 dollars, it caught on fire and melted the wiring harness and some hoses , it was mounted in a truck and has no covers on it . I put about 15 hours of repairs and 300 in parts , mounted it on a skid and painted it and it runs great . I will ask a diesel mechanic I know about the timing belts .
