DT 466, is that a inline 6 or the Ford V8 built by International?


It's the International inline 6 (Navistar MaxxForce DT: 7.6 L wet-sleeve diesel.)

A Detroit Deisel 40 series was built by International, and is essentially the same motor, so I'd be ok with one of those too.

I want one for their reliability more than their power. It's an older model, yes, but my budget won't allow for newer high hp models. It should be plenty powerful for my needs. I value long-term reliability over hp specs.


When I get parts for mine I tell them it's a DT 530


It is. The Series 40 is an International engine painted green.

There are lots of bargain priced DP's with older engine technology. Have you considered a Bluebird. Lots of nice units under $20,000. But I really don't think you will find a DP with that IH engine. Besides there are other considerations like build quality and layout. Finding one with your desired engine but nothing else is not the answer.

...and the BB will have leaky/smoking 6v or 8v92's


Not unless it's 30+ years old. The last 2-strokes are "Silver 92s" and don't leak. Many Birds of that era have Cat power.
