Cool 94 to 98 repower

I am relatively new to 7.3 engines. Have a 94 F250 with a mechanical, non turbo 7.3 that is pretty tired. I would like to replace that with a 98 Powerstroke that came out of an International truck. Question is if the block and heads have the same bolt patterns for mounting of accesories such as alternator, freon compressor, fan drive, power steering pump, etc? Also crankshaft nose for mounting front pulley and damper? Plan on using accesories from the 94 engine on the 98 Powerstroke. If possible.

the idi and powerstroke used way different accessory mounting brackets so I would assume that putting idi brackets on a powerstroke is not going to work. can't say for sure on crankshaft nose but the idi used a oil pump in the oil pan and the powerstroke uses a gerotor on the front cover with a wear sleave on damper pulley and seal in oil pump so doubtful those would swap either. to do that swap your also going to need a pcm and wiring harness and probably some custom wiring to get everything to function correctly. not going to be an easy swap but good luck
