What attracted me to it was that the air intake (or exhaust) on the
turbocharger was taped with duct tape. So, I thought, someone cared
about it enough to tape it. The auction said "detroit diesel series
350 power unit". But the auctioneer does not always know what he is
describing, for example the rotary table and a separate backplate in
one lot, was described as "lathe chuck".

So... Anyone has seen this sort of thing before?

Perhaps a Series 50? 8.5 liter (519 cu inch) OHC 4 cyl electronically
controlled engine introduced in 1993 - common in city busses, trucks,
motorhomes, etc???

I don't know much about them, but the shape and transmission and color
suggest to me it came out of a piece of construction equipment.  Some
sort of tractor or front-end loader maybe?
