About Brian

Hi, I am Brian Powers and I AM BPDiesel. I have been working on truck engines and repairs in Mankato for over 40 years, starting in 1978 at B.H.Chesley Co., a Freightliner dealer. My specialty is in Cummins Diesel Engines, earning factory certifications, over the years, for all on-highway Cummins engines and Detroit Diesel 60 series.

Most of my work is on Cummins ISX and N14 engines.  I also rebuild Fuller manual shift transmissions.  I can provide everything from tune ups and fault code diagnostics, full out of frame overhauls and horsepower upgrades.  I will provide a quality repair that fits your needs and gives you the most for your money.  Durable repairs take more time, but it is worth it.


Repair services offered by BPDiesel.

At BPDiesel, I specialize in Cummins heavy duty engines.  I started on the Small cam and Big Cam engines.  As technology and design progress, each engine model has its own unique design problem area.  Using factory service bulletins and my own experience, I address these issues for the most durable repair available.    I have the tooling for counterbore machining on the NT and ISX engines, and have a service truck for on-site repairs.  When possible, overhauls are “run in” on a chassis dyno for break-in and systems operation.
I take pride in building you an engine that you will like.
I have extensive experience with the older PT and STC fuel systems and Low Flow cooling systems.  With a top notch pump shop and chassis dyno available, we can set your mechanical fuel systems for best performance.  I welcome your vintage truck pulling project and would be happy to discuss it with you.
Through the years, I have worked on various models of Monaco, Country Coach and Prevost RV’s.  The shop can fit a 45’ coach comfortably and care will be taken to assure it its’ cleanliness.  I offer service and repair of AquaHot systems, Onan generators and various components.
I would like to rebuild your Eaton/Fuller manual shift transmission.  RTLO 169 models can be upgraded to 189 gearing for a stronger transmission to go with horsepower upgrades.  I have limited experience with auto-shift and automatic transmissions.
BPDiesel can offer expertise and technical support for your heavy duty vehicle, whether you are looking to purchase or experiencing problems.  I have built over twenty glider kits in many configurations, so I know my way around a truck.  I do not  provide DOT inspections.  Give me a call and I will help any way I can.
