I am wanting a 7.3 non-turbo engine

Hi. New guy here.

I am looking for a good and cheap, 7.3 non-turbo engine, if there is such a thing.

I bought a '90 F-250 with a bad engine and will either overhaul this one or put in another one.

I have a Lincoln Mark VIII to trade for a truck, too.

Thank you.

Really? You actually WANT non turbo? Are you sure? Why? The turbo is the best thing to ever happen to diesels! There is suck a thing if you can find one, they haven't been made in a long time...not sure what year they stopped.
Its like pockets on a shirt...its just better.

Not really, CHenry, it is a matter of money, however.

I would prefer a turbo but I am trying to 'cheap-out' here.
I am retired and that should speak volumes.

Thanks

How much do you expect to get out of your car?
Is it paid for or do you have a lien on it?

I really haven't made up my mind about a cash price. The car is loaded and does have the air-ride replaced with shocks and springs and that is highly desired. It has just about everything that one would want or could get. It has the Opal Opalescent paint that is gorgeous in the sun when it has all of the colors of the rainbow reflected. Ten cd-changer and cassette and ice-cold air.

I would really just trade for a good, diesel truck.

I can't imagine anyone trading a PSD for a car...
I was inquiring what you expect to pocket after the sale of your car thinking there was a good chance you might have enough to buy a little newer PSD than a non turbo. There was a slick red single cab long box 7.3 PSD i saw on here and i think it was under $17k

Hah! Well, to the many MarkVIII lovers, they couldn't fathom trading one for a pickup.

Anyway, I will keep looking but I am not about to spend 17k for a truck. If that Lincoln brought that, I would get a lesser truck and invest the difference.

By the way, I see that the Dodge/Cummins is well thought of. Does it come close to the 7.3 in torque and h.p.?

Thanks for the suggestion.

The Cummins motor is great, the dodge truck it comes in leaves alot to be desired IMO.
