fresh install no start
Hey fellows just registered but have been a fan of this site for over a year. I was now hoping to get some help on this cluster I got myself into.
I just bought a 97 f250 that the previous owner had the motor swapped out of a van. He hasn't had it running without spraying it. I know that;s not good anyway I have been able to get it do nothing more than crank, it builds oil pressure per gauge and I think RPMs again the gauge. I have also determined the fuel bowl is filling. I also dragged it (the truck) and my buddy had in 2nd and it seems to run or at least it sounds like it, while dragging it if I quit pulling it, it dies. The motor ran fine in the van before the swap out. The radiator hasn't been installed yet nor has the air cleaner. I also say that to give you guys an idea of where we are. It appears all of the harness is connected and the motor has oil in it.
Does anyone have a clue where I should start to get this truck running. I appreciate the feedback as I'm not able to just throw parts at it. Take Care..
