could this diesel be used on the road and is there a turbo for it? http://cgi.govliquidation.com/auction/view?auctionId=1227983
Yes it could be used on the road if the rules where you live allow it. But the governor setup will make it feel quite different at the pedal to your average road going engine. I prefer the feel of the Isuzu governors to many vehicles which feel like a long piece of elastic is connecting your foot to the pump.

Yes any NA engine can be turbocharged, but the high compression of that one (21.5:1) means you'd only want to put single digits of boost in.

Thank you for the help. My Rover will be a diesel soon. I going to pass on this set up and wait for a 4BT or Isuzu TDI.

I want to say that the IH DT466 in our IH 5288 tractor is 22:1, maybe 20:1?

I know it boosts to over 15 psi when under load, maybe near 20 psi.

It is a 1984 model. Our Case 3594 had only around 16:1, so that is why I remember thining there was a big difference between the two. The Case 504 is also a much heavier, lower RPM engine, too.

I couldn't find the specs anywhere on the 'net.....just places selling manuals.
This is as close as I got (but no compression data) http://www.tractordata.com/td/td395.html

The bore and stroke of the old DT466B, as you can see, is smaller and longer than the "new" DT466's
