I've got an old '41 KB 11 that's been in the family for a few years. It has the original 450 Red Diamond gas burner in it. While it does run quite well, the stock 135 hp renders it just about useless. I would like to swap in a mechanical diesel engine that has a bit more "oomph" (300 - 350 HP range). It's never going to be used for hard work at all, just more for the fun of it.



I've got 44" inches from the radiator to firewall to work with. A DT466/530 was my first thought. They would fit quite well, but I would prefer to have a Jake brake - just for the noise, if nothing else. That leaves me trying to find something in the 3306/3176/L10/M11 range. Does anyone have a 3306 or 3176 that they could measure for me? I have always been a Cat fan so if I could squeeze a 3306 or 3176 in it would be super cool.
