Motor swap

Has anyone ever heard of anyone pulling a 7.3 idi and droppin in a dt466 or an old dt436 ih motor outa a 1586 or any other tractor? Think it would work? I dont know if there is enough room under the hood or if it is even possible. I got a 90 f250 with a 7.3 idi. Maybe ill just eventually swap in a turbo 7.3 idi.

Well I dont want to put a powerstroke in it just a turbo idi. Then turn it up and have some fun with it. I really just thought it would be awesome to drop an old binder motor in it instead of the boring cummins swaps that EVERYBODY does. Its getting old.
