/ Replacing Vanguard/Daihatsu Engine on Ventrac 4200 VXD #1

I have 1600 hours on my Daihatsu DM950 D Diesel engine. I am starting to have overheating problems and after taking the cooling system apart think the radiator might need to be replaced due to scaling. It is my understanding that parts are expensive and hard to get for this engine. Also,I have read that people are not happy with this engine and that it usually quits around 1900 hours. I love this machine (Ventrac 4200VXD) and I am wondering if anyone has any experience replacing this motor with a Kubota or Yanmar engine? Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated.
