Hi Earl. There is not a 6cyl dexta motor made. I am asumeing that those trucks had the ford diesel and not a perkins with adapter plate to fit the ford gearbox bellhouseing as some guys put perkins in as well. the old fordson E27n (or long horn as it was called in Canada) had those fitted from factory or DIY conversion . The 6d motor is the 6 clylinder version of the fordson major tractor engine. They where a UK made truck motor and are some times refured to as dover and later ones being dorset. ( named after English countys) with aplication in ford thames trader (dorset later ford cargo) trucks, combines industrial aplications, and roadless /county 4wd conversions in the late 50/60's There where never any genuine fordson new type majors with 6cyls and 2wd released as a fordson factory fit they are all home built conversions. . Those motors are the grandfathers of the ford 2700 Dorset range of motors that are in newholland 642 1400 and tr70 combines! I guess if you search the gallerys of pictures on here for the early 60 s county super 6 you will find some pictures of the motors in tractors. The conversion is not that hard to do the top of the bellhousing of tractor and truck are the same so bolt right up. the oilpan is slightly different and some holes dont match but most guys dont worry about that. the frame rails hood and steering link on the tractor are lenghtened about 11-12 for the extra 2 cyls. The front axle A frame is either turned round and shortened to poke out the front with a bracket on the tomb stone, or a u bracket is made to run under the motor and oil pan to support the frame in the stock location. The truck pan is aluminium with no mounting lug cast in against the tractor pan being steel with the lugs. I could well believe that they hammered the JD in power and fuel it is around the 80 -90 HP mark as well. yes i would believe the JD hyds would hammer the major though it was a lot better pump. I have built a few of these in my time back in England. I have a power major with this conversion That I bought over from the u.k that my friend did in the 60,s .A super major that I am putting a ford 2704et dorset in she is around 150hp!. We tractor pulled these majors back in the U.k and got upwards of 500hp out of them with a lot of know how. If you get on youtube atall there are loads of video clips on there of them pulling that kinda HP. I would love to see some pictures of those old majors if they are still there. It is an expensive conversion to do now as most guys in North america want $4000 for a 6 cyl motor to do it. Unfortunately I an up in Canada so have no Idea on dexta stuff in the U.S. I would try ebay and see what turns up there or on the general internet as there are loads of guys selling repro parts and manuals for these tractors around the world. I hope this helps you out with some of what you wanted to know. Regards Robert
