Big Cam would know, but I think the Brisbane company making those powered dolly's (Powertrans) was taken over and then closed down.
Went the way of Smith Bros in Gympie.
Have a young engineer friend who worked there and is now at Haulmark.

and back on topic....lol...

the LARC's were not powered by V903's but were powered by a similar V8 Cummins engine known as a V8-300 or V8-370 which was the predecessor to the V903.
Some of the parts were interchangeable.....but its a bit like comparing a V8-185 to a V8-210....chalk and cheese!!!
the V8-300's were unreliable and thats why when the V903 was released for on highway use in the USA,most fleets steered clear of them,but,fleets like Consolidated Freightways and LA City Transit (in busses) bought heaps of them and proved the 903 to be a good,reliable engine!!

There was turbocharged version, the VT (400, 430, 460) which was even less reliable - we had them in Israel in Autocars towing potash roadtrains from the Dead Sea and they damaged Autocar's reputation quite a bit after having to be thrown out and replaced by 335s. The VT460 was used in the Israeli "Super Shermans" but there you expected the things to last one battle, after that they would be replaced if you were still alive.

As for more twin-engined weirdness, here is a mid-30s Henschel 36H3 which had two 6 cyl. petrol engines side by side for a combined 250 hp. The truck in the pic seems to have had a gas producer to add to the complication. I don't think many were built...

Koehring Dumptor











It is powered by two 10-20 McCormick Deering power units. Each engine powers one track.
The operator can steer the machine by changing the speed of the engines,
or by using the foot clutches and brakes.
