I ran a floater truck with a 466. It was no powerhouse but it was very reliable and took the lickin that comes along with a floater truck.

A DT was a good engine for just what it was built for and if you start jacking with it your going to have to be careful about over fueling it.Its a small cube engine and the fuel pump can put out more than is safe if you start setting it up/

We had a mid-80's International 5488 tractor that had the intercooled DT-466B engine. I believe it was 175 hp from the factory. The local dealership mechanic turned some screws on the injector pump. He said that brought it up to about 215-220 hp. It made a heck of difference. The tractor held it fine- nothing broke.

It was a very reliable engine. Even after turning it up, we never had any issues with it.
