I've got a neighbor with a '95 4700 with a DT 466 (with turbo)

Where do you find the hp rating on a DT 466 truck engine-----seems like there is a ID plate on top of the valve cover??? (hadn't looked at one in a long time)

Also--------what did the different engine letters represent? This is not a 466E, but does DT 466E stand for electronic-------seems like some were intercooled also??

And------where should I find the line set ticket with all of the original factory specs.

Thanks----

Anson,

I don't know the technical answers, but, if a copy of the lineset is not: under the seat, on top of the glove box, or on the sun visor, you can write to Navstar with the serial number and they will send you a copy of the lineset sheet.

thanks Harold.

How much experience did you ever have with the DT466s in the bob trucks?

Most everything I have ever run had the two speed rear axle--------primarily 5 speed plus the two speed rear end = "poor man's 10 speed"!!! Always able to find a "small step" gear to tote the load without lugging the engine--------just wondering if a 6 speed in the diesel would equal the 5 plus 2 in a gas burner.

Man--------if we could get old Pops Imbler to answer the phone; we could get some conversation.LOL Pops knew his trucks---------and a good fellow to go with it.

Anson,

I believe the DT466 was after Pop's time. He was a fine person with a great knowledge of trucks and a great truck sales ability.

The only Loadstar I ever had with a diesel was a 1700 at Farm Equipment Sales & Salvage which had a hoist and a roll back implement bed. It was equipped with the IH V-8 diesel, and five speed with two speed rear axle. When you first cranked it, it would put out smoke like an old DDT truck untill it warmed up. Then it ran clean, ran great, and had plenty of power.

For 95, it should be a hole stamped out of the sticker on the valve cover. They were rated from 175-275hp. From 93 on up, they should all be intercooled/aftercooled, which is when they quit making the different titles of DT or DTA466.
DT466E does mean electronic.

Anson I have a 93 4900 with a DTA 466 rated at 215 hp with a 6 + 1 transmission. The low gear is very low for comming out of the fields. We are very flat arround here. The gear spacing seems to be adequate. I don't know how it would work in the hills. Eason
