Coach, you even transplanted the original radiator w/ coolant tank. Would the IHC's original radiator been too big for the OM617?

nooooo no no no...... not me. This is westkill's rig. I just posted the pictures here from his yahoo page so that they will be archived for future reference.

I got to agree with ya though. He did one hell of a transplant didn't he.

I wanted to keep everything mercedes where possible. The MB radiator fit perfectly in the IH radiator support. The car runs nice and cool. The only fitting I had to buy was a MM to SAE fitting to install the IH oil pressure sender so my gauge would work. The stock MB temp sender works my IH gauge perfectly. I even used the gas pedal assembly from the SD in the IH.
The funnieset thing was the stock IH steering box hoses screwed right into the MB pump! No fittings required. The motor sits on MB motor mounts too. I made up 2 wedge pieces that I welded to the frame for the stock mounts to "sit on".
This conversion actually was quite easy. I love to weld and fabricate so it was a good work out for the brain. Maybe I'll put a 617 in a Scout next......

I would LOVE to have the skills you have West(s)kill. I want to put the engine in my datsun diesel into a Datsun Z (bolt in near about) or a 4x4.

I see your a scout nut. I'm a rockcrawler type lost in FL where rocks dont exist. Sold my heavily modified; well used/abused, TJ to buy my Dieselized Unimog. It will be my adventure camper that keeps up with the Jeeps LOL.

No problemo lietuviai. I just didnt want anyone giving me credit for something I didnt earn. West(s)kill earns the credit. As you pointed out he did a hell of a job.

oh.... and Westkill. Are you aware there are injectors for the 617 that are designed for harder working 617's! This engine was also used in some Trucks and G-Wagens. Check w/your Bosch guy. It is said they will give you better spray pattern for vege and I'm sure it will give better performance for your and my heavier needs

Hey Westkill, great job.

I am planning a 300sd into a 1965 Toyota Land Cruiser Wagon (FJ45LV). I am guessing you put in a divorced NP205 transfer case behind the MB auto-tranny. That is my plan anyway.

On getting propane parts around here, the suppliers I have gone to have 1 of 2 responses:

1. Blank stare and drool down chin; or
2. "we only sell to certified installers."
