Anyone done a DT466e to 466 conversion?

Just an off the wall question. So many of us like the mechanical dt466, Me included, Has anyone tried to do a conversion from a 466e to mechanical 466? I believe the short block is the same, would need to change over the head assy, timing cover and gears, and fuel system. It would be interesting to see if it could be done.

by the time I would try to convert one, id just go buy a mechanical DT reman. or even find an older non running mechanical bus and swap in a reman motor.

full head assenbly, timing cover assembly to support injection pump, an injection pump, fuel piping, differenrt filters.. then you need to run your dash gauges because they are run by the computer on the 466E, so custom cluster or find an older cluster.. accelerator assembly.. the 466E is fly by wire. if you have an allison 2000, now you need a throttle box for a mechanical engine. if you have AT545 or MT643 you need a mechanical modulator swap.

NGD 466 may swap in for an early 466E.
