Was curious if anybody out there has swapped a powerstroke into a earlier Ford. I have a 78 F250 Supercab 4x4 with Dana 60's front and back, a mild 460(performer intake, 750 carb, Jacobs ignition),205 transfer case, and a c6. Really interested in a diesel swap. I imagine there will be quite a bit of fabrication involved, motor mounts, crossmembers. I'll need radiator and wiring harness, fuel tanks etc from the donor truck. Not looking for more power, the 460 has plenty, but I'm looking for better mileage, longer engine life. A realize a powerstroke isn't cheap, but I refuse to pay 35,000+ for a new truck. My truck is solid with heavy duty stuff, and I feel the price of the powerstroke will be justified when you look at the price of a new truck. Just curious if anyone has done the swap, and any info they might have? thanks
