Question 2002 F350 Starting Inquiry

Hello Everyone,

I am a newbie with my first 2002 F350 7.3. I scooped one up with a blown transmission and would like to know if I can start the engine if the transmission is already out.

I read some posts somewhere on the net the starter is located on the passenger side behind the motor and someone else told me it is on the transmission.

Pls help!

1. Can I start it with the transmission out?
2. Is it located on the transmission?
3. I turned the key. I get power but no crank even with a boost.

Starter is mounted to an adapter plate between the engine and trans.You should be able to lock the plate down to the engine block and fire it off.This is if you have an Automatic..I am guessing the Manual uses the same provisions.

With the trans out you will not have a completed circuit from through the range sensor that tells the pcm that you're in park.
