I know there are many applications/variations of the Detroit motors, and maybe this is a goofy question. Thinking of trying to fit a 471 Detroit in a 1900 or 1950 where a 453 was stock. How much troble/effort/fabricating am I up for if I get started on this transplant? Any Detroit experts out there? Will the stock radiator keep up with the 471?

The 4-71 is a LOT bigger in every dimension than a 4-53! Shoehorning one into a 19xx can probably be done, but it would be a fabricating nightmare.

As J.Schwiebert points out a 6V-53 will be a better choice. It won't be a "drop in" replacement for the 4-53. But it would be much easier to adapt the flywheel, clutch housing, radiator, etc.

There were a couple 6V-53 repowers running around here for a while. One was a 1950; the other a IH 806(?). Both were working tractors. The IH also did well (and drew a lot of attention) in the "field class" tractor pulls for several years.

Thanks.....just found a very affordable, recently overhauled 471, thought it might be fun to introduce it to a 1950. Not so much for pulling, but to farm with. Can the stock radiator keep up with the 6V53?

There was a 1950 south of here that had been repowered witha 6V-53.
