Are SD33 made from unobtanium?

I have searched high and low. I'm starting to think its true. I want to put a diesel in my 76 scout II terra, but I just seem to find an SD33.

I have a concern though, will it bolt up to my IH spec T-19? Or was there a special bell used that I need to get?

A lot of SD33s were put in boats. They're called Chrysler Nissans, usually, and don't go by "SD33" but 633 or M633, from memory. They often have a different governor on the IP that you won't want on your Terra.

The 1980 Scouts etc. got a turbo -- that one year only, IIRC.
