    Check this out. I may or may not be looking to get rid of this thing. It's a 1977 G30, shorty, 4x4 conversion (Pathfinder most likely, although one of the front locking hubs says "Darvan" on it). 14bolt rear, 'heavy duty' Dana 44 front (ford style, low pinion, driver side drop). It also has the...
  3. Cummins 6BT / 5.9 Conversions
    Hi all Looking at keeping my freshly rebuilt 4L80 in my 93 dually for my 6BT swap, the truck was a 6.5 originally and was the last year for a mechanical pump i believe? What inputs do I need to keep to give the computer so my trans still shifts? I've read some places it just needs RPM, throttle...
  4. Cummins 6BT / 5.9 Conversions
    I have a 1997 12V Cummins that I plan on swapping into my 1984 Chevy K10 original diesel short box. Has anyone done this conversion before? Any advice would be helpful. Thank you.
  5. Want to Buy
    I have a 1989 4BT out of a bread truck and need to buy a working hydraulic steering pump with its gear attached. My pump is making screeching noise and I think the pressed fit gear is free spinning and not gripping. I can buy the pump local but I cannot get the gear to seat properly all the way...

    Hello, I have fitted a 6BT into my 1940s Diamond T 969 and have problems with fan-to-shroud alignment. The fan is 3/8" too low and 1 1/4" too far to the right. I have a mount/hub that bolts to the front of the head and one that bolts to the block, beside the timing cover. It is not an option...

  9. Cummins 6BT / 5.9 Conversions
    Yes, seriously, I want to drive a mechanical tacho off my 6BT. It is in a 70 year old truck and I want to use the original tacho if I can. I don't think I could tolerate a dash full of original gauges with a single modern unit looking like a wart on a nose. Did very early 6BTs have a take-off...
  10. Transmission, Adapter, Transfercase Discussion
    So I have a 1999 F250 CC V10 it has a S5-47M Gas Units for a transmission and I have an adapter plate which is the same pattern as the T19. So I have the adapter plate figured out, but that is about it. I am looking to see if anyone knows of a flywheel to stick behind the cummins that will fit...
  11. Cummins 6BT / 5.9 Conversions
    I spent my lunch looking for information and I've run out of time. Are the mounting points the same for a 4bt and a 6bt? Are they dimensionally the same from the back of the engine to the mount? I have an f150 with the 300 I6 motor mounts and I want to know if I will need to modify them to get...

    I have a th400 out of a frito lay van. I drove it 10 hours from KY to MS with no problems. Shifts great. I am putting my 4bt in a 2000 F150 4x4 and cannot use the th400. I would consider a trade for a Dana 60 front end to go under my 69 f350 or an adapter plate for the f150 tranny or a...
