cummins swap, not that hard!

I recently swaped a idi 7.3 in a 93 f350 dually for a 12v cummins. I dont own a big shop or have money 2 just pay someone 2 figure it all out for me, and i still made the swap in just a few days. I used motor mounts i found in stock, at auto zone. Even the radiator hoses i found in stock. No special parts wer required, tho it helped 2 have the whole doner truck. Any one looking 2 make the swap should know The hardest part of the whole swap was pulling the cummins from a pos dodge!!! Want pick or more details, just message me.
