I am considering putting a 1988 3.9 into my 82 D150. As I have a complete donor truck for this, I would like to know what is involved and what I have to remove from the 88.
Another question......will the 3.9 bolt up to a small block tranny?
Yep the pump is in the tank. You really only need the engine side of the harness, if you are running a non-overdrive tranny. If you are running the overdrive tranny you need the O/D switch in the cab and the wirring harness that goes to the tranny.
Both my cousin and I are in the midst of a magnum swap. I am putting a '96 360 in my 86. and my cousin is putting a '99 3.9 in his '65 A100. I have the 360 running on a stand and the 3.9 is in the midst of a rebuild. I also have spent too much time repairing my '88 dakota with a 3.9.
Oddly enough, that is the only thing wrong with the truck.......no reverse. Just wanted to swap the little engine into a 4WD vehicle. Any tips or details would be appreciated. You can IM me if you want.
(need any other Dak parts?)
