powerstrke in 1980's ford???

I have a 99 powerstroke i wrecked. new reman engine and rebuilt tranny so i dont want to let that stuff go. i want to put my engine and tranny in a 1980-1985 ford and just curious about the wiring and computer end of things? i know there will be some frame fabrication but the wiring will be the tough part if anybody has ideas or any input i would appreciate it.

Find yourself a 83+IDI

Engine mounts are the exact same as a 7.3 PSD. As for wiring, just transfer everything over from donor engine. If you want, add the factory IDI sensors into the powerstroke, and your gauges should function fine. Only problem would be speedo, as 83-86 trucks used speedo cable driven speedo's.

i guess i didnt know that they had the same engine mounts. What about tranny i wanted to put my 99 front end and rear end under it too. so i just take the dash out of both and just transfer all wiring and computers ect. do you think i will have to put a body lift on cab to clear turbo or anything of that nature?

Nothing a large hammer/sledge wouldnt fix.

I believe the dash is wider in the SD vs the older truck, dont know if it would fit or not. You could try to adapt all the gauges from the SD over though, but I think I would keep the rest the way it is.

There are some threads about putting SD axles into OBS trucks, you just gotta do a search for it. It requires some work but can be done.

You might have to make your own tranny crossmember, and probably will have to get custom driveshaft (s).
