1997 F350 12v swap with zf5

Im planing my fummins, i have a 1997 f 350 powerstroke with a 5speed, the motor is a 2005 p pump re-con motor with 90k, out of a medium duty ups truck, now I'd like all the help I can get but i have a few questions:

1.pan direction/ pick-updirection? sump is under the front of the motor now
2.alternator? the engine came with a nice serp set up, with a big denso alternator is this something I can use?
3.manifold? the manifold is different than a 94-98 era manifold, it has the trubo farther back and tucked under the manifold I can see the obvious fitment advantage
4.intercooler? whats the best intercooler to fit this style ford and to aid with the intercooler pipe fitment? i plan on fabing my own pipes
5.the re con motor is awesome, i've found many advantages to this motor: cummins re-man turbo,cummins re-man p pump,cummins re-con kdp fix, oil fill cap valve cover
6.any help with puting a cummins in this style ford would be awesome and any info on the re-con and the cummins would also be great
-Thanks josh

Their are several build threads on here, I would do some variations on a ford search to try and find them. I am getting towards the end of my build. The ones i can think of off the top of my head are from offroad addiction, eathansfordcummins, ncovey, and i know i've seen lot's more. It's all very interesting reading. There are several different approaches to each hurdle of the process. Good luck on your build. Please post on your build as you go also.

1) sump in rear.
2) I am sure that it will work. If the belt setup works, I would think that getting the electrical to work would be easier than building mounts for a different alt.
3) Great! The Dodge style manifold interferes w/ heater box.
4) The Ford 7.3l stock intercooler fits well with the OBS trucks. Intercoolers out of similar years F600-F800 work as well.

Just scroll through the conversions section. Most of the ones mentioned by Johnny are a few pages back. There's a lot of good stuff here.

Good luck
