Easiest way to ID the engine?
I just bought a 96 F250 4x4 ex cab with a "swapped in" diesel.
The original 7.3 crapped out, and this one was taken out of a bus...it has 60K on it. It looks nothing like my 7.3, it has a metal screw-on fuel filter on a mount to the left of the intake..
I suspect it's a 6.9...obviously, no turbo. I need to know so I can tell the next owner.
A little back-ground...
It starts right up, and runs well.
I paid $400 for this thing, so I had a parts donor for the OTHER F250 I bought with it...the cab rockers and fenders are toasted....the other is a 5.8 5 speed with a 9 foot fisher plow that has a mint cab and frame and such...the bed is crunched.
The diesel will donate the tires, the bed, the headlights, the bumpers, and then be ready for the scrap yard or sale to someone who wants the engine/tranny/transfer/axles.
What would the value of the engine and tranny be, if it has any real value?
2012 F250 With 9'6" Fisher Xtreme V plow.
