I'm looking for any info about swapping a DT466 into International 4600. It currently has a 7.3, and is running fine for now, yet with 180k, I'm planning ahead, and would like to upgrade. Being most of the 4000 series Internationals come equipped with the DT466, I'm told this should be an easy install.

So most likely, I'll be in the market for a DT466, possibly with a different tranny as well. I don't know if the 5-speed manual I have right now will bolt up to a DT466... anyone know? Any info at all, even on a DT466, would be helpful. I'm told the pre-electronic 466's were great motors, and easy to modify and/or fix. I've seen DT466C's and E's, but I don't know what those letters in end indicate.

I'm also not opposed to swapping for a Cummins, but with the DT466 being the norm of the modern 4000 series, I figured this would be easier install, and easier to find parts, let alone finding someone with the experience.

'We're thrilled with DieselEngineTrader.com! We sold an old CAT D343 within 1 month of listing and a Cummins engine within 3 months. We were amazed - we didn't think anyone would want them in the condition they were in!'

Stephanie Vaughan, Heavy Equipment Parts, Independence, USA

'Listed a Perkins T6.354 on DieselEngineTrader and sold it after 5 month. With a listing fee of $5.00 per month and no commission, it was much cheaper and more effective than the magazine we also used.'
