6.9l and 7.3l swap?
I have a '86 ford with a 7.3L swaped in to it by the previous owner and the clutch is toast which aroused some problems/questions.
Can you directly swap a manual 7.3L motor in the place of a manual 6.9L motor without changing anything and still use the original clutch setup for a 6.9L using the 7.3L flywheel?
If not, can the flywheels swap over without drilling?
If the fly wheel is swapped will the 6.9L pressure plate/diaphram work on it?
I posted the thread ''I need help, clutch'' but the more i read it the stupider it sounds! I talked to summit racing and they told that they wont help me unless they know flywheel bolt pattern, the number of splines on the input shaft and the diameter of the disc! so Im SOL there!
Im a cummins guy but I love this ford and drive it the most but unforuneatly i dont know crap about fords so any help or advise is extremely apreciated!
