So i thought id share my current project with the CA peeps on here, especially the CF folks
My truck: 2002 Ford F250 SD, 7.3 PSD with 95k
Doner truck: 1996 Dodge 3500, 5.9 12V with 260K Bone Stock, ran like a champ, Bought it for 3300, had to drive 3.5 hours to get her tho
I started throwing around the idea of swapping in a 12V in my SD after i had to change my HPOP 800.00 injector o-rings 100.00, IPR 200.00, Glow plug module failure 300.00, Low pressure oil pump 80.00, and glow plugs 90.00.
I've done all the repairs myself on the 7.3 but as you can see those numbers really add up lol, after all the repairs the truck runs pretty good, but im just not satisfied with the 7.3 anymore lot my faith in the "so called bullet proof 7.3"
As you may have guessed it, i had alittle sway in the trailer getting the truck home. Truck wouldnt fit the other way.
So here's yet another Fummins build!
If there's any other members that have a SD with a 12V, let me know may have some questions for ya.
And yes i know about the CA SMOG LAWS, We'll consider this an offroad truck project
So i pulled the motor 2 weeks ago, came to the realization the cab had to be lifted for the valve covers to clear, and the oil pan to clear the crossmember. Easy enough, 4 body bolts and tractor
heavy, heavy ,engine hoist wouldnt move, had to use the tractor to move it.
So this weekend i had some spare time, decided to look to see if there had been a KDP repair on the engine, I didnt see the case cracked along the housing, I feel lucky after this find...
Someone had been in the case, cause there was alittle silicone on the DP?
Almost ready to come out, felt good to see it still in there tho
I was looking at the kits online for the KPD repair, i decided to make my own tab, and went to lowes bought a longer bolt, added a splash of thread locker and went to Kragen and ordered a timing case gasket kit 30.00
So if anyone needs a hand here locally with there KDP shoot me a PM, id be glad to give you a hand.
As of now im just waiting on parts...gasket set, and water pump.
Im gonna try to pull the 7.3 this week. Gonna keep the 4R100 in the truck tho.
just getting started !
