    i get the point about the room, but its obviously been done with the inline 6 engines. im not sure a Detroit was ever put in them, and im not sure where you would find a bellhousing and flywheel that would mate up to the tc. I can lengthen or shorten the driveshafts to some extent to move the engine back if needed. I think the engine site low enough in the frame, that is almost clears the floor pan,, I appreciate all the help. don't care about the Detroit drama, I wouldn't go that route anyhow as its not an engine ever put in one. I agree ive heard the v800's were junk, but the 573 has never powered out, no matter what I was pushing, and didn't use much more fuel if any than my underpowered d5m I used. the front cover issue has been discussed, but not sure the gears and everything will fit, it might not even be the same castings on the block, one is a dt573, the other a dvt573.. I know some parts are the same...even if I find a pump or swap mine, im still left with an obsolete engine, regardless if I love the one that's in it or not. I think the availability of the 466,8.3, and l10 make it worth the effort. thanks all, and if anyone knows of an engine and bellhousing out of a td15c or e, or 20e, let me know. thanks again!

    Like I have to sell you of all people on a Detroit...;) I do know things were really tight under the hood on the E models. When they ran, they ran well, I loved 2 speed steering pushing or ripping. But the coolest TD was the 24 with the 817 engine, It had a good sound and could outwork a D8H with the same attachments.

    Well... A few of us have had a bit of fun with your thread and no disrespect meant here. I hope you find the parts combo you need to get your machine up and going. And if I happen to run across anything I will let you know.

    The only photos I have of an M11 in an E I resealed on King Island, gives an idea of how close they sit to the radiator and the second photo is a bit shitty but you can see the height roughly. Sorry haven't got any details on torque convertor

    Does anyone know if the bell housing is different on the 466 and 573 engines? I would assume it was, but didn't know if they was some standard
