If you wanted to use a DT466 just get the SAE adapter from the #2 truck bellhousing to the marine gear of choice, all standard. But why ? I have only seen one boat with the DT466s, it was a sportfisher and had TD gears. The guy built the "manicoolers" and did a very good job. On the downside, no one makes marinization parts, especially exhaust manifolds. The wet liners are a problem, o rings tend to go bad. Turning up the older inj pumps is not a big deal (7100 pump) but newer electronic engines are pretty much standard at around 210 HP, not enough for most boat applications. It would be cheaper, better, more cost efficient and did I say better, to go with a Cummins C series.
