ford cummins

I will be starting my Cummins swap hopefully next month. Its a 97 Ford f250hd with a 5.8. Swapping in a 89 Cummins. The only thing i did not realize when I started planning for this swap was how the fuel tanks switched. On all the older Ford trucks I had there was a selector valve on the frame. On this truck there is not. I guess it switches tanks with the in tank fuel pumps. My question is can I run the Cummins with the electric in tank pumps instead of the mechanical pump? Will the gas pumps work with diesel fuel? Thanks

I found a truck being parted out... A 1995 PSD, Got tanks, pick ups, lines, selector valve and full harness for $100... Should be a direct bolt in and cheaper than any other options...

The GM 6 port selector valve is also a good option and gut the intank pumps...

I am not going to use my selector valve set up.When I had the hopped up 7.3 PSD in my truck I did away with it and tied the front tank to the rear tank w/a -12 hose.I did away with the factory pick-ups on the sending units also.I picked up from the front tank w/ -10(5/8) tube and hose and returned to the rear with a -8(1/2) hose.So the rear tank just fills the front as it goes down.It works real good.

I was thinking the 2 tanks with the selector would be great if I would use Veg. oil later down the road. I could use one tank for the veg. and one for the diesel.

I have a 88' 7.3 truck, I haven't looked but was assuming the tanks, senders and switching valve would be what I would want for my swap.

Either the pollak one or the factory ford one will work fine... There seem to be lots of parts trucks for sale and these part dont seem to be in high demand...

I already have this parts truck, so that's what I'll use. I was thinking so, just like to be reaffirmed.

Thanks for the info guys. I think I’ m going to take the selector valve off an older truck and replace my tanks with a set I have from a diesel. I found some wiring threads on ford trucks and it looks like the wires are the same weather it has a selector valve or a selector switch. Or there close enough that I can make it work. I might be starting this swap sooner than expected went to start my truck tonight and no start. If its anything major I'm just going to start the swap. I was hoping to start it next month. This truck is my plow truck so I hope it doesn’t snow. I haven’t even ordered my adapter plate yet.

The Destroked plate I ordered came in in a little over a week. Pretty good turn around and a very nicely milled piece.

I'm getting my plate from ford cummins. I like that I can use the dodge starter. Its cheaper to replace. I'm going to get engine mounts from them too. I called them today and left a message waiting to here back. Destroked doesn’t have mounts listed on there site for the obs ford. I went out this morning and my truck fired right up. I don’t know why it would not start last night. It worries me more now not knowing if it will do it again. I still have to pull the cummins out of my parts truck and fix the leaky gaskets, kdp, and paint it. Probably next week.
