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.

GOD BLESS CHRIS LEDOUX!!

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.

GOD BLESS CHRIS LEDOUX!!
