I asked this question on the IH engine forum and got no reply, so I'll try here. I have a couple diecast builds in mind, but I want to confirm that the two tractors I'd like to build in 1/16th scale  could actually be built in 1/1 scale. Would it be possible to put a DV 800 in a 1586 or a 5488? I'm not real concerned about the feasibility factor her, just would it be possible. I don't want to spend time or money building a fantasy tractor. I know this all sounds kinda silly, but toy farming has been  my only option since we sold the family farm in'72, and sometimes I let my imagination get away w/ me.
Thanks for any help.
