    I gotta set my steering stops still, so I’ll get a WMS measurement in a few days. My heaters and stuff are coming in, so I’ll be fiddling with it anyway.

    Adding some nuggets I found out in my internet travels:

    Found out through some digging that the Roxor engine (M2DICR) is generationally derived from the IH B275. The B275 was natively mated to the T90 in the M&M CJ500. I'm gonna do some more digging, and hopefully get my hands on one of those bellhousings. If the M2DICR engine can be rigged up for mechanical injection (or not if you want a CRD), it could end up being a nice little diesel swap candidate without needing aftermarket adapters.

    This is how I feel when people say made from Billet (you mean bar stock), a billet is a piece of unfinished unrolled steel from the mill.

    Anyone here know what thread size the brake master cylinder has? 3/16 is just a bit too loose. Can't get a good gauge with my taps.

    Try metric fastener. My seats took 8mm nuts.

    Were you able to figure anything more out on this.

    I wonder if the roxor flywheel-flywheel housing from this new engine would work with the older ih motor to just use the whole roxor trans t case

    I’ve been thinking bout buying some stuff to play with. If I could find a mechanical diesel that would work where this electronic one is I’d be all over it.

    By all the digging and eye ball calculous I’ve performed, a 3 bolt VE pump should just bolt up.

    The CR system on this engine is an afterthought. It’s been run with a VE pump for like 40 years.

    Do you know the model number/ designation of the mech version.

    Ahh I see, so this engine has a predicessor that was mechanical? That would be cool buy a long block and mechanical it and throw it in when my SBC dies.

    Jrobz23 thanks again for all your replies and helpfulness.

    Their MDI line all had VEs, which is what this engine derives from. In the US, some of their tractors had the same engine, in VE.
