what do you think?

when i was interduced to diesle's a few years ago worken with my cousin paving driveways, the badest truck he had was powered by a cat that was smaller (in displacement) then the rest. so since then iv always wanted a caterpillar powered vehicle. well now since i have a 97 f350 cc i was thinking of doing a motor swap to a cat since most people do newer powerstrokes or cummins and well im sure itl be one of a kind. im lookin at a older 7.2l 3126 6cyl. motor.
let me know what you think? is it even possiable? i would think it be the same as putten in a cummins right? besides the mounts and what not. those im sure would have to be fabed. and also i wanna find one and take mesurments and see wat it compares to a cummins

that would be really cool cause ive never seen it done. I dont know it would be as easy as doing a cummins swap though cause its not as commin. There are companies out there that make stuff for swapping a cummins into a ford but not a cat.

But I would still say go for it man, that would be cool

Good luck. Those engines are HUGE at 1600 lbs. and 4 ft. in length. You will have to modify everything to make the truck live with it's weight and torque.
