The weight is a problem since a 360 will way twice what my engine does now. Probably make this thing steer like a nose heavy tank. While possible I'm thinking the 6.9l idi would be a better choice.

Last summer at RPRU there was an unrestored 70's vintage 2 wheel drive IH pickup with a DT360. They used the Allison bus transmission . They had tractor water pump and other components with electric fans in the front of the radiator. It looked like it was an easy fit in. I would put the DT360 in it change out the AirResearch turbo and put a HX35 turbo from a 24 valve Cummins and go down the road. One way that Dodge fit the Cummins was by making an automotive style back plate rather than the big truck stlye bell housing.

I have a 67 IH 1200 4x4 with a DT361 installed, stock front axle and springs and it works just fine. I always figured it wasn't any different than the heavy IH V8 engine and a snow plow hanging on the front.
