I think its marginal.. You wont find a D60 behind any CTD in a factory application. In fact if I remember correctly, the dodge trucks switched a bigger D80 axle if the CTD was a manual, vs auto. I also found another pinion gear in a box in the van which tells me this isn't the first time my D60 has needed work.
Just something to consider.
The offset, or lack of with my motor placement, might also have something to do with pinion bearing failure. But I wont know which parts are failing until friday when my D60 gets new pumpkin bearings/shimmed etc. Its a temporary fix..

Darn.. I was hoping you were going to use a manual so I could see what it took before I started converting mine.. I hope that 47RH has some serious mods because the CTD is so brutally torquey.
