commin rail cummins how hard would it be to swap into a ramcharger using a 1988-1993 cummins truck for raidator monts and using the painless wireing harness, what would be the avatages and disavatages of the commin rail cummins
I am also wanting to make a cummins swap into a 86 ramcharger. I have a question though? I have a 12v motor complete out of a loader only thing wrong with it is just wore out. The question is will a bell housing adapter for a 24v fit the 12v and will my stock small block 727 trans fit up to the housing weather it be the 12 or 24 adapter?
Ok as far as for conversions go, the 12v would be the easiest, then the common rail(painless wiring harness), and then the 24v. with the 12v you can get more power but it is almost always there, with the others you can add a chip or a programmer and change the settings to whatever. after doing my conversion, I will tell you this much, try to stay away from the 24v, the wiring is just a freaking headache. Witch ever way you go, it would be a great idea to get a donor truck. Hope this helps.
Mike your small block trans will not fit any cummins adapter. If there was one that it would fit it would have a horrible death the first time you climbed all over the throttle. It just isn't strong enough. You need the diesel trans.
The 24 valve and the 12 valve have the same adapter bolt pattern.
