7.3L idi swap into 67-72 f250 truck questions

has anyone done it? i have a 67 f100, well now a 250 since its 8 lug and has 250 suspension.

its currently a FE/c6 truck and plan to put a 7.3/c6 combo in it.


is there anything i should keep in mind? any problems that id run into?

the idi's came with a c6 right? and would i be able to keep my driveshaft since it has a c6 already?

im picking up the motor next week so any tips will help with the swap, thanks!


pics will be great too!

The engine was not designed to be in that truck, custom motor mounts will be necessary, keep in mind the placement otherwise the trans will not fit in its factory location either , that is if it won't sit to far forward because of fan and rad clearance, good luck with your swap, also diesel tank is needed or cleaned out and diesel filled, it's not going to be easy
