Stay tuned... 6.0l in a 79 F250

I have a 2005 6.0l motor, auto trans/transfer case, everything in the engine compartment (wiring, computers, brake system, a/c box, intercooler, radiator, all ac stuff, etc...). When I say everything, I mean everything. When I was done stripping then engine bay, there was nothing left but the firewall. Also grabbed the fuel tank, pump, lines. On the inside, grabbed every bit of wiring, cluster, pedals, fuse box. Dash was already taken, but I did get the cage. Anyways, I have everything to put into my 79 to make it a superduty. Unfortunately, I didn't think about cutting out the firewall, so I will be making a trip to Johnson's Mustang and Truck parts for a complete firewall to graft in.

Now, the 79 F250 is leaf sprung (not coils like the F150), so an 8" 99-04 lift will be going on it. The body is fairly decent. I have cab corners, door bottoms to tend to. The bed is pretty rusted. The floor mainly and behind the right wheel. Everything else is decent. The welds that hold the bedside to the floor at the back of the bed are broke so the bedsides aren't stable at all.

Needless to say, I am going to start on the bed first and hone my welding skills (which are non-existant).

I am planning on starting it this month and will post pics as I go. It is not going to be a slam-it-together project, so I plan on taking my time and doing it right.

So.....stay tuned....

Here are some before pics. Now, I haven't started anything yet and it will be a lengthy process. Tons of bodywork to do first before I start on the transplant. I promise it will be very pic intensive though.

Here are a few shots of the 1979 F250. This is how I drove it home.






Here is the 2005 6.0l and the transmission. There is some overspray dust on them from when I painted the Excursion




But wait..... What is that in the back of my truck.... Yep, a pair of BDS 8" rear springs for a Superduty that I scored on Craigslist today.



I can't wait to start on it. I am not planning on rushing. So...Stay tuned..

I already have the egr delete. Going to do head gaskets and studs before it goes in. Planning on cleaning up the wiring and relocating the gp module and ficm So you can see the valve covers. It Iis all a blank slate rightnow and I am sure I will change my mind many times during the build.
