ive done it before on an 86. If I remember right, they use the same motor mounts. Wiring harness should attach to the same places on the motor. It is a simple swap. Won't get any easier.

years ago, i had an 85 with the 7.3 from an 89. the guy i brought it from did the engine swap.
things to keep in mind:
1. fuel filter is different
2. start motor is the same
3. glow plugs are different
4. the tranny is the same (as far as i know)

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo
