    Does anyone know of a company that is reasonable on a short block diesel engine for a 580D? Mine has the 80hp Mitsubishi? Or, is it cheaper to resleeve one?

    Don't know of any cheap Mitsu short blocks, but there's an outfit that repowers them with B series Cummins motors. Not cheap, either...

    We put a 90HP Caterpillar diesel in ours, bolted in with just a few mods. If your crank and rods are reconditionable, slave your block and be done with it, unless you find an engine for a human price.
