Are SD33 made from unobtanium?


Post by Skamokawa »

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?
Datsun 510, OM616, T5, Dana 44 IRS, 3.07 gear, Mickey Thomas P235/60r16 rubber. 65 mph @ 1400 rpms. mpg, somewhere north of 50.
76 IH Scout II Terra, IH 304, T-19, Dana 20, Dana 44 f/r, 3.31 gear f/r, Cooper LT245/75r15 rubber. Seriously need to swap out that engine.

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.
