[MV] Cummins TD engine swap for M37

Last week I got a look at a 92 Dodge 4wd pickup with the Cummins 6-cyl
5.9Liter (360cu in) Turbo Diesel in it. I made some rough measurments
and came up disappointed. The B5.9L is a tight fit in the 92 PU. There is
38 inches clearance between the firewall and the back of the radiator.
On my M37 there is only about 34 inches, so the radiator would have to
be moved forward for this engine to fit. It would also be a tight squeeze
laterally, as the turbo on the right side needs 18 inches clear from the
engine center line.

Maybe someone on the list has made this conversion and can share their
experiences with us.
