I don't think I've ever seen an N14 in a Wanderlodge though. I've only looked at a few of them so maybe they exist. I just went on the Wanderlodge Owners Group forum and searched all forums for Cummins N14 and didn't find anything. I agree that the N14 has a stellar reputation. My son is a truck driver and his '03 FL120 Classic has a N14 in it. He says it pulls very well.

Most of the vintage Birds came with Detroits, so this must be a replacement engine

I wonder what other engines may have came out in year 2000? Like for example in a 2000 Freightliner Med Conventional FL 70? I have the Vin # What are the ways you can Identify a N14 Engine?
