So I run a small placer gold mine in the Yukon and picked up a old Terrex Loader with blown 6v53 and one of the thoughts I've had is replacing the 6v53 with a 6v71 since the 71 series engines are a bit easier to find, my question is would the 71 be able to bolt directly to the Transmission in my Loader and if not is there an adapter kit that I would need? Would I have to change over flywheels? I'm not to worried about space or motor mounts I'm a welder by trade so fabricating something up should be easy.

If this can be done is there anything I need to be aware of or over looking in this conversion?

'Sold a Detroit 6V92 to a customer in Chicago after listing it on DieselEngineTrader.com for only 3 months. - I'm delighted as we had the engine for 10 years!'

Charlie Simon, Florida Detroit Diesel-Allison, USA

'The engine was on other sites, but we received the most calls from DieselEngineTrader.com. We sold it to the first caller-from DieselEngineTrader.com. Also, there was a waiting list on the engine if the first sale fell through! Thanks for the great service!'

Fran Trapp, South Carolina, USA

'Was looking for a Gardner 4LK to rebuild. None of my usual contacts could help me so I searched the Internet and found one on DieselEngineTrader. It was only 27 miles down the road!'
