Which brings up a good question....Since International built the engines, but Ford installed them. Did the engines come from Navistar with the late 99 equip, bigger turbo, injectors...ect, or did Ford install these items on the line?
I know its kind of obvious by looking at the engines the difference between the early and lates, but if Ford did infact install the turbo, injectors and such, then the assembly date of the engine really wouldn't matter. It would be the date that Ford made the switch on the line as to if you have a late or early engine (3/15/99 ???)
Get where im going?
3/4/99 is on my engine VC.

Thanks everyone. That was what I was curious about. I have a late motor, early chassis. I like to know the details about my trucks anyways, but with early and late parts I want to know the correct ones to order if I have to.

Thanks again to all.

hey jt, welcome to the 2/99 build date club. I like to call my truck a 99.25 because just as yours, it has the late 99 engine with early 99 front axle

btw, where did you get the correct bushings? have a part # you would like to share? Mine clunks, of course.

Ok, my engine build date is the same as the body...8/98
I guess Navistar was building engines as fast as Ford was building the trucks.

TRL WGN 1 - So since it is an early front end does it have a Dana 50 or 60? I haven't looked at the tag on the diff cover yet. The bushing kit if from Energy Suspension 45-2587. I believe I got them from LMC Truck.

All the front ends are Dana 50's until you get up to 02-03 when the F-350's had Dana 60's.

figured that was more fitting than the common 99.5
unless ours are 99.5's and the others are really 99.75?

This thread should be a sticky! People trying to figure out if they have an early or late 99. And, some actually have a little of both! Glad I found this thread!
