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?

'We sold a Turbo in 2 weeks to a guy in Houston! We also sold the first engine we listed - an old Hatz. It took 2 months to sell but that was OK as we couldn't move it locally. We track visitors to our website and we get lots from DieselEngineTrader.com. Your website really works, it's a great service and we'll be using DieselEngineTrader.com for years to come!'

'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!'
