I am looking at swapping the front end on my 65' f100 which has a 300-i6 and 4 spd manual with the front end out of a 94 f150 w/ 351 f.i. and auto trans. Has anyone done this before? Will the suspension/steering components fit-up without cutting/welding? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The engine/ trans combination sounds great, but you might be better off finding a 73-79 parts truck to get the discs from as they are a direct bolt in. The newer parts might not be worth the trouble. The steering box is mounted ahead of the crossmember from 80-up so unless you want to get into some heavy welding and fabricating, it's probably a good idea to stay with older parts.
