Question 5.9 freightliner fl60 swap questions??!

hello , i bought a 1996 Freightliner fl60 medium duty truck. it has the 6 speed eaton transmission. The previous owner had removed the engine because it blew up. For the most part everything was removed from the other engine and left with the truck. The transmission, alternator, intake tubes, inter cooler, and most all accessories were there. I have a 12 valve from a 1996 dodge that im installing. I havent had any luck searching and finding any kind of wiring diagram for the freightliner vs the cummins. Wiring is my weak point, so if anyone can tell me whether or not the freightliner harness will plug onto my motor without any problems or not i would greatly appreciate it. or if someone knew where i could find a wiring diagram for it, it would be very helpful. im not sure if i should leave my dodge harness on the motor and then try and splice it into the freightliner harness or what is the easiest situation.

thanks for any advise or information

I did almost the same as what you are doing. I used an engine from a '95. I took all the sensors from the Flr. and swapped them over, and found the wire to the A/C in the harness and added a bit to it. I thinkk that was about all. There was not much to the harness once it got to the front of the engine. Just a few wires.

thanks for the help, my only problem is i dont have the old motor to pull sensors from and stuff. or to even look at. you wouldn't happen to have any picture of your engine would you? anything would help, i just dont have anything to go by or anything. which parts did you use from the dodge, vs using the freightliner parts. im gonna try and leave my dodge air conditioner on, and power steering and vaccum pump. Is this what you did? Also which alternator did you use? thanks for any help, sorry for all the questions

In order to use the Flr alt and bracket, I also had to use the A/C from it. I used only the bare bones Dodge block,head and turbo. Fan,a/c, alt and all the brackets came with the Flr. I pulled the engines from both. Sorry, I replaced this Flr with a 2008 M2 with a Mercedes engine last yr.

o ok, i have both the freightliner and dodge ac and alternator.. i just thought it may be easier if i could leave as much of the dodge stuff on there. but its looking like it may be easier to just go ahead and swap all of the freightliner stuff on.

thats how it goes lol, maybe i'll find an engine somewhere i can take some pictures of.. thanks for the input

So the FL60 in this thread is now mine, Donny and I worked out a trade. It's 95% together and almost finished. It runs and drives great now. We haven't really had any big problems in putting it all back together. We've used some freightliner parts and some of the dodge parts in getting it back on the road. I will try to post some pictures soon!

nice truck. hopefully you put the freightliner ps pump on it. its going to need it with the hydroboosted 4 wheel disc brakes with massive 15" rotors. and of course the steering box is also Much larger than the dodge. I've got the same setup on my international.
