Need info for a MT643 with a DT466

I will be installing a mt643 in my bus in a while. ( has a 5 speed spicer now)
I picked up a rebuilt mt643 for a song but it came from a cat 3208. so I,m trying to figure out what I may need to change.( torque converter, governor, valve body)
What I need is someone with a mechanical dt466 and a 643 to give me the serial number from the trans. I'm working with a local allison shop to get the right parts.
So if anyone has a 88-93 international conventional 3800 with 4.7 gears I would really appreciate you getting the trans serial. I can do a build lookup and figure out what I need to change.

Well, I am not in front of my bus right now, but I do have a bus with that combo, and its in Washington state. I live in Graham, near Puyallup. If you want to come see the bus and look at anything you want, take pictures, etc, feel free. I work "on the road" so I am only home weekends, but your free to contact me and come take a look.
BTW, its an 85 International with a mechanical DT466 and an MT643. It may not be original, but it is what it has now.

most torque converters are balanced to the engine, you may need a new torque converter. check that the part numbers are the same. good luck

Actually the converter is not balanced to the engine. Only balanced to its self. I may need a new one anyways, I may have the wrong stall speed for my application.
