"Has anyone on the list ever put a Cummins B motor (Straight 6 like D*dg*
uses) in a 73 - 79 ford Pickup? Or know of someone who has?"

Yes. I knew a guy that did this. Advice?
It will fit.
It can be done.
His looked like a factory install.
They custom built everything!
Forget the A/C! That was the hardest part as it required notching the frame
to get it to fit.
They were using the Turbo engine and it just had torque up the yingyang!
Not my cup of tea but it was just too cool!

My red 69 F250 2wd with dual piston caliper front brakes seems to have a
very bad problem with the front right wheel. Everything is fine one minute
while driving, and the next minute it pulls to the right and shortly after
that you begin to smell something burning. The problem disappears as quickly
as it came, but it heats things up at that wheel pretty good first.

What is the likely cause/solution, and what damage may have occurred from
the high heat?
