v10 to cummins swap

I have a 94 12valve with a 47rh 2wd and i am going to use it as a donor truck. I have bought a 98 2500 with a v10 and I want to know if anyone can tell me what i have to do with the wiring to make everything work with the dash cluster ? I am going to use the tranny and everything else from the 94

the engien speed sensor is different to the gas engiens. so That is not going to work together... I would recomend just swapping the das cluster as well... from the diesel truck to the V10 truck.. personally never owned a v10 so I aint much help but Im pretty shure the v10 has the ESS hooked on the ignition distributer. and for the sensors thay are probably not he same such as ohm difference vs gauge scale readings. might just as well use the cummins wiring harness.. makes the pcm work and all the other little changes alot easier

Can I plug the wiring harness from the 94 directly into the pcm out of the 98 or do I need to get a diffrent pcm? Thanks for the info... Also I want the new style dash and cluster so it all will match in the interrior... Does anyone know where I can find a diesel gauge cluster for a 98?

I dont think thats possible. the 94 pcm for the cummins contols the overdrive/lockups solenoids in the transmission.. reads the transmission temp, reads the ESS, reads the TPS and alot of other things... so you will need the 94pcm for that motor... Im not really shure of the clusters, but I think that they made 12v cummins trucks untill 98.5 so you could get the clusters from there but i dont know if it will work together.. also the pcm "that controls so many things" has the altenator volt regulator buitl in it and senses all the sensors involved so if som senso starts acting up you can turn the key on-off-on-off-on and see the error codes.. dont know how that is going to work with a neewer cluster coz of the change after 1997 where you need to hook the truck in a fancy computer to see anything... so I would rather freshen up the 94 cluster "pimp it up" and make it work.. but thats just my dollar fifty but some one might know this better and shed a much brighter light on your project.. Oh and also,, what gears are in the v10s axels and is the v10 2wd as well.. I wish I had a project as intressting as yours

The 98 v10 is 4wd it has dana 70 rear and 60 front 354 or 355 gear ratio... i am going to have to get a transfer case for my 47rh and shorten and lengthen drive shafts... thanks for all the good info well i guess i will just use the dash and cluster out of the 94 that will work best

Do a search on it, than theres the transmission linkage thats easy for a roadwelder... just remember to take ALOT of pictures before you go tearing the donor apart so you can see order of all the wires and other things that might confuse you later on, saves alot of time... and if you document every thing, you could even do a nice wite-up on it for the benifit of others... Just dont for get to change tha tank modul and rain it an fill with diesel... my friend once swapped a diesel in a gas Toyota pick-up and forgot that.... He banged his head against the wall til it bled

The clusters wont swap over, its differant so your gonna have to find one from the newer interior diesel, youll need the 94 pcm, all wiring and even the wiring that goes with the newer cluster. You will probably still have to change out some conectors from the harness to cluster but Im not positive, the plugs on the cluster may be differant than the one on the 94

Finding that cluster from a 98 12valve seems to be difficult since they only made a half year of them. Do you know whether a newer 98.5 through 02 cluster would work or not. thanks for the info....
