2002 block, interchangeable into 1995?

Ok, I know the timing cover, pick up tube, and camshaft are different, but is there any reason I can't install a 2002 block into a 1995 truck? I would want to use the 1995 timing cover, etc on the 2002 block. Its a stock truck, not going for any power.

Again, I am just wanting to make sure the 1995 timing cover will work on the 2002 block without problems.

Thanks!

Yes it can be done. Just curious, why do you want to use the 1995 cover?

Not arguing with Dirk at all, all I was going to say is that we had a 95 powerstroke, that was mixed and matched. It was probably more than just the block but we had nothing but trouble with it! There was probably a lot more to it than the mix and match that caused the problems, just be careful and make sure you do it right. Good luck

Because my customer's truck is a 1995. He is not wanting to buy a new HPOP and oil resevoir. Just wanting to re-use as much as I can to try and keep costs down. He's been screwed over by a couple other shops, and this will be the 3rd engine in his truck's 135,000 mile life. Wish he would have come to me in the first place. Oh well, now is my chance to make it right for the guy.

yep it'll work. IIRC lifter hold downs are different so i think you'll have to run the later model hold downs.

No worries.

If he's just using the block, then it should be fairly straight forward. Where you having electrical issues?

It was so many things that I wouldnt know where to begin. It usually shuddered really bad randomly and then one day it just went to crap so we tore appart the engine and one of the pistons was torn up bad, if I remember right, the tip of the glow plug broke off or something and did the piston in, but shortly after re-building the whole thing it all happened over again. The truck just sits now. I figure sometime when I get the chance I might use it for a hot rod truck project.
