1928 chevy 616 swap

I am building my old pickup with a 616 2.4 Diesel engine and auto transmission, I have to narrow the engine up a little to fit so I can close the hoods. Is there an intake for this engine that locates the T-Body above the engine or do I have to cut and weld the old one? Thanks for any information.

Post this in the Diesel forum for more experienced discussion.

IIRC some 616s don't have a throttle plate. These engines are fuel throttled. I don't know what the air throttle plate is for. It might be possible to cut down a 617 turbo intake manifold which tucks tightly to the head. Do you have room for a one cylinder longer 617 instead of a 616?

This picture shows the manifold. It doesn't stick out more than the upper hose fitting -

That's interesting, no I don't have the room, I was just seeing if there was any way to make it work without cutting it. I can modify the one on it I think.

This is the motor, you can see it's really wide, I am removing the power steering.

Here's another view of a 617 turbo -



You should be able to lop off and cap the 5th cylinder part of the intake manifold to fit a 616 then plumb the inlet port to an air cleaner.

Or better yet get a diesel out of a 95 E300 to put in it. I've got a 67 Ford F100 I've been thinking about dropping one of these engines in it.

You can get a naturally aspirated 617 in there. I’d consider a naturally aspirated 602 with turbo intake manifold and 5-speed since the cant keeps the engine’s bulk closer to centerline. It looks tight for 6 cylinders.

I will set this in and see how much room I have, with a tape I have about 2 inches.
