Any interest in a very tired 7.3 before I post?

Working on a deal on a 95 F-SuperDuty. Planning on pulling the eng. and trans if I can buy it right. Got a Dodge diesel donor truck that is rusted severely. Engine requires ether regardless of temp, runs bad until hot and still seems to have a miss,(could be DMF vibration but not sure), rear main out,clutch about gone, trans rear cover threaded hole bosses broken on several and leaking fluid. Bad gear noise in 3rd and 5th,(Not even good as a core due to case damage) Truck shows 125,000 but idled extensively it's whole life. Fuel filter has oil in it. Previous owner ran all kinds of waste home heating oil in it. I dont think the truck is worth fixing everything especially considering the fact that I have a powertrain waiting to go in. Worth ??

Old waste heating oil? Lord only knows where he got that garbage from. But Learn something new everyday. I would start at like $200, after all the time you have invest in getting it going again.

I have no intention on getting it running. Pull it and sell for parts or leave it in a corner. Truck drives great and has great brakes and tires etc. The waste oil he got from the work he does. Converting homes from fuel oil to gas and/or old tank removals. Just curious to know if anyone locally needs this. I can put a 12 valve Cummins and the attached NV4500 in it fairly easy. Another old work truck on the farm is pretty handy. And nothing of that era will handle what an F-Superduty will. I just cant justify a transmission, clutch and engine repairs. If I can buy it right I will. Otherwise it will just sit where it is and rust.

I will probably post this engine/transmission combo on ebay with no reserve just to move it. It brings what it brings.......

Changed my mind. I decided why swap engines and transmissions only to also have to re-gear for highway use? I sold 2 rusty diesel Dodge trucks to have cash to fix this one right. Once I get the fuel system lined out the 7.3 should run for a long time. Also planning on upgrading clutch. One question has entered my mind. Is it possible to overload an F-Superduty with a 15,000 GVW and a 9 foot flatbed? I never will. Should make a real good firewood, scrap metal and mulch truck.
