This just makes it way to easy it almost takes all the fun out of it I wonder how much they want for it.
Wow Okie, I started reading through that thread and I was like wait a minute, why is he gelcoating it blue? I had found a different one, check this out
Oh yeah, I forgot about that orange one.
Note that a 6.9/7.3 has the same shape bellhousing as a 460, and they make 460 to velvet drive bellhousings. You'd just need to drill holes in the correct locations for the bolt pattern on the diesel. Not sure how a velvet drive would hold up to that the torque of a 7.3 turbo but you may be able to get some extra plates and discs in there.
It can be done but likely all the little things to make it work will be expensive, don't expect to be saving money for at least a few years of frequent riding.
GM now has a fantastic, large displacement v-8 deisel engine called the "Duramax" it uses for trucks. This engine is used in heavy equipment applications as well. It would probably work really well for your requirements, but I have no idea what risers, or transmissions it could interface with.

Now which V-Drive? What ratio, with all the torque available? How much extra weight will the new motor add?
Here is my pick for an engine.... Cummins will turn at 2500 rpm all day long and create almost too much tourque.....
If fuel is no option then this would be insane.....
