Have to be Kinze conversions- both of those tractors would have had 619 deeres in them originally. Common conversions for both of these tractors.

I would love this-for sure I'd order a new one. Unless its a Dubuqe built motor then I'd be looking for something differrent! I'd really like to see Ford go to a straight 6 motor (or 5?).
Back in the 70's deere powered some C-70 chevy trucks with the 404 (4430 motor) Not alot of them around and it didn't go over that great. They also tried to put the 8850-1000 cube motor in some over the road trucks but, in both cases the motors were to heavy and the projects were canned.

Yeah, out of all of the Deere engine series, I would have to say that the Dubuque-based 300 series engines are light enough for the front end of a pickup, plus you can get a downswept manifold and turbo setup for them. I like the Waterloo 400 series engines, but the Dubuques are excellent. I have always wanted to install on into an old 71 or 72 F-350. I think that either the 4 or 6 cylinder would work out alright.

I believe Cummins bought the C series rights from Case tractor some years ago, so the C series or ISC as they call it now was originally for a farm tractor.

Those C-series engines (8.3 L) are excellent. We have a truck shop in with our ag tractor shop, and there are many of those engines out there. I have 2 Fords and a Dodge 3500 with a Cummins. It is very easy to tell that the 8.3 and the 5.9 are brothers. I have been around Deere, Detroit Diesel, Cummins, Cat, and even Deutz, but for all truck applications where torque, power, and efficiency, combined with longevity and reliability are required, the Cummins wins out. I love my Detroits. I own three of them. But they just don't live as long as a Cummins under the same power and load conditions.

HEY!!!! I actually have plans to paint my '94 F-150 John Deere Green with an Industrial Yellow stripe down the body line, 4020 decals, and yellow wheels. It will be a thing of beauty... especially when I put the 5.9 Cummins in it.

Put a shredder on the back and it should look just fine.
