Thanks Marz.

I plan on makeing some triangle stands that come off of the boxed in section of the frame. I will then use the factory isuzu diesel motor mounts to attach the diesel engine to the frame. I have seen lots of guys with 4x4 rigs and 4bt cummins diesels use this design and it works great, I figure if they can go off road with it I think it will be fine for me cruising the streets with it.

ok enough of a break I need to go see if the por 15 is dry yet.

oh yeah I had it on the ground to roll it outside the shop and pressure wash the underside and frame. I couldnt help but be suprised at how low it sits now, its crazy. I would definately say it dropped it 5-6 inches or so but I didnt take a before measurement so its a guess at best. I dont have the final sized wheel and tire combo on yet either. I will have pics later this evening.

wow this keeps getting better! now what diesel motor are you going to use?
I was also planning on going with a diesel or a turbo charge 6I.
This is the best thread IMO!

I am installing a 3.9L 4 cylinder diesel out of a 1990 isuzu NPR comerciall box truck. The actual name of the engine is a 4BD1T its about the same in displacement and power output as a 4 cylinder cummins 4BT. I chose this engine because they are easy to hop up, very easy to install and maintain with the mechanical injection ( only a couple wires to hook up) and they have no problem getting 30mpg in heavier 4x4 rigs with 35" tires. I will be backing it with a chevy auto with an adapter kit I bought off the internet. I can post picks of the whole setup as well if anyone is interested.

Pics are good!! This sounds like an awsome project.

just a few more questions. If you dont mind.

The area where the motor mount goes on the frame there, what is the measurement from that spot to the cab? Where the stock 4.6 would bolt to.

Is the steering rack power?

And what are you doing with the brake lines?

Did you get your hardware at the local improvement store? And what length are the bolts for the frame?

Are you going to use a sway bar? Can the one off the Vic work?

I will have to measure the spot you want. I basically marked the outside edges of the factory spring cups and put the inside edges of the upper contorl arms on those marks. Trust me this is the first project like this I have ever attempted and so far its going great.

The rack is power it is from an 06 crown vic. I also got the power steering pump from the vic but I am going to use the power steering pump on the diesel and just adapt the crown vics lines to it.

I will use the 06 crown vic rubber lines from the caliper and I will run them into a bracket then get new metal line and run it from the bracket/rubber hose to the distribution block.

As for the hardware I just got everything from the crownvic. Only 8 bolts hold the entire assembly on the car from the factory, 4 on the aluminum crossmember and 2 more on each trailing arem for a total of 8 bolts.

As far as a sway bar, yes I am going to use the 06 crown vic swaybar. I am basically going to have a 67 ford truck that handles and rides like an 06 crown victoria when I am done.

I am still going to post pics tonight I just had to go to the local lowes to get more welding wire since I ran out. I have the frame boxed and the engine bay por 15'd. I just need to make the motor mounting stands.

This is the coolest thing i've ever seen!!!! I have been laboring for months to complete an IFS swap (i won't mention the donor vehicle, it was free). Let me get this straight, you didn't have to widen/narrow this thing at all?

Nope, the Crown vic frame rails are 34 inches apart from outside to outside.
Just like every Ford truck made from '53-'96.
It's a slam dunk, like it was meant to be swapped into them.

You assumed correctly, as I have installed 3 of these and helped with/sold 2 others and will begin installing another in a week or two.

Enjoy the ride!!

So far I've installed a 302, 351w, and a 460 Ford using rear sump oil pans and clearance has been very good.

I've also installed a 350 sbc ('65 F100) and a 440 Mopar('56 Dodge truck) using this crossmember.

The amount of clearance is very simular to putting in an aftermarket Mustang II style suspension.

Engine mounts are fairly easy to fabricate for all of the above.

(Hmmm... Maybe I should build some "kits")

Carcrafter22,


Just in case you have not experienced this I will save you some grief.

I have found that POR15 is great for areas that do not receive sunlight, once the UV rays hit this it will start to discolor.

The POR15 chassis black is great and is UV resistant, however the chassis black does not have the same properties that regular POR 15 rust preventative paint has.

The CHASSIS BLACK POR15 recommends topcoating over a dry POR15 rust preventive paint.

My first mistake was using the POR15 rust preventive paint and not topcoating with the UV resistant Chassis Black. The final result weeks later was a milky white sheen to the POR15. The silver after being in sunlight will turn a greenish color.

Great job on the front end, if you get a chance you really need to start a gallery to display your build pictures in. After this thread cools down it will require someone to do alot of searching to find the pics you linked to it.
I would like to see more build pics of your setup.

Rudy
