Last time I checked, about two months ago, a sleeve & piston set from CaseIH was about $850 a hole, give or take a few bucks. Injection pump repair for them can be very pricey as well. Plus, the procedure for adjusting valve lash is very annoying, with shimming of the bridges and all that. Plus, everything on that engine is HEAVY! Out of frame is the best way to work on the engine should major repairs be needed.

The DVT-800 is simply too costly to overhaul anymore, you can drop $10,000.00 in parts easily on just a standard overhaul. Plus 90% of the shops are not equipped to handle that 6000lb beast either.
45 series had 14 series main frames and 47 series had 15 series main frames.
The key to keeping one of those old birds alive is maintence. Forget about the owner's manual recommendations.....the drivelines should be greased at least once or twice daily.
Both 45 and 47 utilized a Spicer 10sp trans. the 45 had a 1 3/4" input shaft and the 47 had the more industry common 2" shaft.
Beings the 6 cyl replacement engines run slower then the V8 there are some issues with ground speed loss.
Plus don't go smaller then a 400hp rated engine to replace the 300 hp V8 engine in a 45. A Cat or Cummins truck engine is actually a automotive engine and as such is not rated for a 100% duty cycle, therefore you will need to detune it and treat it with care to keep it alive.

Local shop does conversions to Cat or Cummins power for $2500.00 with you providing the replacement motor. I think that is quite a bargain price.
Geez- that does sound pretty reasonable! That's quite an undertaking lengthing the frame on those beasts to accomadate an inline 6. I've seen a few that back yard mechanics have done and they look pretty cobbled up afterwards.
Has anybody ever heard or seen a 903 (nine-o-nothing ) in a 45 or a 47? I know they wouldn't be a whole lot better, but they would be cheaper to work on & would fit better with fewer modifacations.
