Searched, but couldn't find -gas to diesel?

Hi folks, first post. I have a 1992 Crew 4x4, owned since I ordered it from the factory, with 120,000 on the 460. I am wondering about the possibility of converting to the most modern Ford diesel that would fit.

Any chance of doing it? Any existing kits? Will the E40D survive with a rebuild, or does it go too? I would imagine the 4:10s in the diffs would need to be changed as well?

I really want to keep this truck, but I don't get to use it much at 9MPG!!

Thanks in advance,

Lee

Welcome to Powerstroke.org

I don't know a lot about conversions. I would believe however that the easiest way would be to aquire a complete donor vehicle (a total most likely) to take engine, transmission, computers, etc out of.

check out destroked.com they sell cummins conversions. if you do a powerstroke swap just get a compleate donor truck with tranny, transfer case, computer, wiring harnes, etc. you 4.10's are fine my powerstroke has 4.10's and i like them you can expect 14-20 mpg from the powerstroke. and 18+ from a cummins. personaly the 12 valve cummins swap is the easiest and most cost efective diesel transplant. mainly because they are all mechanicle so you dont have allot of electronics to worry about. oh and a good performance build E4OD will be fine because thats what the powerstroke is equipt with also. only problem is i dont believe the 460 and powerstroke have the same bell housing so it wouldnt work with the diesel. hope this helps a little if you got any more questions i could talk about diesel donors all day long.

Thanks!!

This is a truly welcoming forum.

My goal is to hang on to my good ole truck while getting a better, more efficient tow/off-road vehicle. The 460 runs fine - just not cheap.

Hoping there are more views out there

Now we're talkin'!

Could I put a Super Duty donor package in my '92? A nice, wrecked '08 would be ideal!

Seriously - would a 97 go right in? Does that diesel offer enough performance?

The Cummins would be great except I live in a communist zone - Kalifornia- and they would not let it smog.

BTW - my truck could be your truck's brother - it's white with a Cabernet stripe. And one more door per side.

Thanks, bro.

a 94.5-97 powerstroke will fit rite in no questions asked, but like the above statement you will need the tranny, computer, wiring, etc. you def want a compleate donor truck.
