    I am doing the same swap that you did except I am putting the F250 D50 into an F150. Were you able to use the holes in the back of the engine crossmember for the TTB to bolt to or did you have to drill out other holes? My F150 has two rivets that hold the front 2wd suspension on and they look like they are the exact same size as the bolt holes for the TTB when I put the bolts up to them. Just thought I would ask. I would appreciate any help I could get.

    I would definitely think the engine swap is a little more difficult then the axle swap only because of the year differences in wiring. If they were about the same year in year, it would be closer, but pulling the dash apart, wiring in the dash and components is where the challenge is. The frame work for the 4x4 conversion is a little labor intensive, but can be managed fairly quickly! Thanks for the thumbs up!

    hey youve done a wonderful job on your truck and youve inspired me! i have a really clean 1990 f350 4x4 with the 7.3idi and a 5spd but the engine is shot. ive also got a clean 1997 f250 2wd powerstroke but like i said its 2wd lol andways ive pondered the thought of maybe pulling the powerstroke out of the '97 and putting it in the '90 but i hear thats a wiring nightmare so now im debating pulling the d60 out of the '90 and converting the '97 to 4x4..which would be less work do you think?

    I am not sure what parts will cross with a Duramax or any other "Non-Ford" components.. I am an "All Ford Fan" so I can't help there!

    Conradyclan: For engine/transmissions to stay clear of, that is a lot like opinions, LOL.. Everyone may offer something different. From my experience, I am and will be staying away from all E4OD's. They are an electronic and modulated transmission which makes it easy to succumb to failure. They also do not handle the torque and power a Powerstroke will put out for very long. If you wanted to stay automatic, BTS transmissions are really the way to go. They will last as long as the engines.
    Engines, in mid 94, the first Powerstroke came out, the Direct Injection Turbo model. These are the reliable and solid engines everyone craves! Pre 94 1/2, were the IDI (InDirect Injection models) which the used mechanical fuel delivery system and did not have the "mexican hat" piston design. Some will say that this engine is reliable and great, and others prefer the DIT Powerstroke. Its your choice! I love the PS myself, LOL! Is the 92 F-250 worth it? Depends on what they are asking!

    Follow-up to that last post: that engine in the donor truck is a 7.3 IDI. Heard the weak link with those is the head gasket. Avoid that engine? Could I still use the turbo parts on a Duramax?

    Loved reading about your project! Great descriptions and pics! I'm starting a similar journey in the near future - just acquired a 1990 F350 Dually 351 auto 2WD.
    My dream is to basically do the same thing you did with the exception of keeping it an automatic (for now): want to swap current setup for a turbo diesel with auto trans and 4x4
    I have a couple of newbie questions if you don't mind.
    Is there an engine and/or tranny to steer clear of? Is there a pairing I SHOULD be looking for? Any specific years to avoid?
    Possible donor:"1992 Ford F250 Supercab XLT 4x4 7.3 Turbo Diesel, A/T with Overdrive, ENGINE TOOK A CRAP, not running. 4x4 works great, Locking Hubs." Worth it?
    Thanks for all the help so far - just in posting all the descriptions and photos!
