Re: 6.9liter diesel conversion ?

The frame and coil springs aren't strong enough to support that engine and tranny combo. My father is in the
process of shorting his 83' ford f-250 Diesel 4x4 frame(severe skin cancer on truck) to accept a bronco body
(which is decent). He had to cut out about 16 inches but it looks good so far, plus he never had to pull the motor
or tranny and has stronger running gear to boot....... BTW: good chioce on the engine the ole' F-250 get 18MPG
around town and 20-21 on the highway with 3:50 gears yet has enough power to move 35"BFG's good.

Do'n it with only 6 cylinders!
