I'm looking for a good deal on a cummins 4bt and NV4500. I am a bit of a novice but willing to dive right into the project. I don't have alot of money. I want to make my Highboy a great daily driver and off-roader too. Many have redsponded to my post "swap". I appreciate that very much. I want to get more feed back on how to preform this swap. Where the deals are. All the componets needed. I wiil give you all a description of what I have to work with . This is vehicle-wise. I have a stock 1976 Ford F250. There is a Dana 44 up front and a Dana 60 in the rear. The engine is a 390 and I have 34" Super Swampers TSL's. I personally hate the power assist that is on the vehicle now. Power Steering is a must on the rebuild. I'm sorry to ramble. I know I don't have enough room for a 6bt because the distance from the firewall to the radiator is 37 inches. I need at least 38-39 inches+. So if any of you gurus would like to reply I would appreciate it. Have a great day and happy wheelin.....Alan
