Thanks a million for taking the time to look. Don't go out of your way to get the pics. My pastor, which has the bus, had a diagram, but lost it. I will find it somewhere. I'm sure we will have more questions.
Another E series question. I started a new thread hopefully to get a diagram of the motor mounts on the 86 bus we have been working on. The engine and tranny are in. The tranny's kicked around and will not line up with the mount. We was wandering if we had the motor mounts on wrong. Swapped sides with them in other words. Also the passenger side fuel filter head is still on the engine. Would it be possible to leave it there? The only other filter head we have came off a 93 E350 7.3 engine we got for parts. I was trying to leave the older filter head on because I know the 93 filters are higher. This is a budget bus with limited funds. Just trying to keep all the costs down. Thanks DieselJohn. By the way, engine and tranny went in fairly good together.
I have been looking all around the forums and everywhere I can think to find a clutch/brake box for my manual conversion that I am doing on my E-350 ambulance, all to no avail. Wondering if you have any leads on one? Thanks in advance for your time and reply.
I guess a little more info will help. We took the 6.9 out of a school bus and put it into a 1952 F-6 4x4. Due to spacial constraints with the steering gear and exhaust mods we made, to accommodate the turbo, we had to remote mount the oil cooler. The 40 psi I am getting is off the lines going to the oil cooler. The lack of oil pressure is at the standard oil pressure sending unit port on top of the engine. I had someone suggest this could be caused from a spun cam bearing. I didn't think that cam bearings could spin and cause an issue like that. We are still learning about these IDI engines and any guidance you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
Hoped you might be able to help me with a technical issue if you have a minute. Ive got a 84 6.9 in my truck that I am having oil pressure problems with. Ive got 40 psi on the bottom and nothing on the top end. Ever come across something like this?
