'83 F250 460 to diesel swap

I'm looking for a 6.9 diesel engine, doesn't have to run but must be fairly complete. I'm planning to swap my 460 out for a diesel. This 460 is in good shap approx. 75.000 miles on it, wich I will get rid of after the diesel implant.
Anyone in Co having a old 6.9 diesel laying around.

I don't have a 6.9 for sale, but I did read an article in one of the 4x4 mags about a Cummins install in an '88 or '89 F250. I'll try to find it. For some reason, they said the conversion was easier. Also, as a former 6.9 owner and current Cummins owner, I would definitely look at the Cummins.

Thanks for the reply, I don't see why a Cummis would be easier but if you could find that article please let me know.

I've been looking through old issues to find the article, still haven't found it. One of the big reasons they went Cummins is because apparently the 5.9 needs only 6 wires hooked up to run. They used the wiring harness of the Ford and made it work with the Cummins.

I can tell you that I put over 300,000 miles on a 6.9 and had very few problems. It was a lousy cold starter though, and that was here in Seattle. The Cummins is a much better starter and I think it is a heck of alot stronger.

You my want to look around, up here the 83 - 89 6.9 diesel trucks are pretty cheap to buy. I have seen several under $3000.00.

Still looking for a Ford 6.9 to put in my F250. I want to do the job myself and not spend thousands of dollars for a shop. If you know of a 6.9 in any shape , please let me know.
