The very common Genset exhaust manifold mounts the turbo at the top, providing a extra mount for elbow that supports outlet pipe. This
exhaust manifold mounting to engine is symmetrical, and can be turned over. The injection lines are well clear, and the return line was
easily moved away from the edge of the manifold, all I need now is a 90 degree T4 To T4 elbow. I may have to fab one, Any source idea
on this part would be helpful.

thanks, Steve

What I'd do: Model the T4 flange in your favorite CAD program to use a weld elbow of correct size and have sendcutsend.com cut them out for you. I model tapped holes at the tap drill size or a little smaller (sometimes they leave a start/stop that needs to be cleaned up before tapping the hole).

Hi, I am very interested in your Bronco with a 4045 John Deere Turbo project as I use to be a farmer in Minnesota and love John Deere engines however now I live in Houston, TX.
I take it that your using the original transmission with that and where did you get the plate to bolt that onto the 4045 JD?
Thank you very much for posting this.

Its a Ford ZF5 transmission that is the same length as the original trans, and the stock Transfer Case bolts right on. The engine plate and flywheel are custom, designed
by myself and my machinist Buddy. Thanks for your interest.

Thanks, but its not round. I will do similar with bought flanges, then fab up 4 pieces for the 90 transition, and make a weldment. Thanks for the effort to help.

This pic shows the custom flywheel, which consists of machined stock flywheel and

Machine Engineering Circle Water Science


part of the original dual mass flywheel , with considerable machining. I could not us the original 12 1/4" flywheel because
it had no vibration isolator springs, so I ended up using a early 7.3 diesel 11 inch clutch.

Cool build! I had often thought of do something similar when I ran across these engines except the trans issue was alway the problem unless you wanted to use a Alison with a SAE housing or pay a machine shop for custom. I did retro fit one of these in a off road forklift once but had sae housing and paid the machine shop to make a few parts for me.
