Anybody recommend a good "universal" intercooler for the 4BT/HX30W setup? I'm shopping around and not finding much.
Yep, some grinding and cutting and welding to make the appropriate hot side plumbing so that you can run that hx40 sequentially with an hx30w. By itself, it is way too big for a 4btA friend of mine just offered a relatively new and working HX40. Anyone ever mate that to the 4BT with good results? What needs to be done? From some searching it seems I might need to do some grinding. Any help or comments would be GREATLY appreciated!
It's in the shop that rebuilt it. They tried to start it up as their final test before I go pick it up. As best I could tell my adapter had no spacer. I have a ring that came from FoMoCoLoCo with the kit I bought for motor mounts, and the modified cross member. It didn't seem necessary when I installed the starter that the shop says will not work. The guy at the shop says the gear on the starter is too small to engage with the flywheel. The only pictures I can supply right now are old ones I took before I ever delivered it to the shop. Sadly I don't have any that seem helpful for the adapter.Does your adapter have a spacer on it? A pic may help.
Hmmm, I can't remember which of those I might have. I know for certain I got one for the 7.3L. Probably the '93 but I'm really not sure. I haven't looked at the starter in over a year. Do those two different models you posted pictures of have the same bolt pattern? Because as I said earlier the starter I have fit right into the adapter plate without the need of the spacer ring. Fit like a glove.Do you know the part # of the starter you have? If you have the factory Cummins Ford adapter plate, it used a starter spacer for the stock starter which is the same on Ford or GM applications. If you use the Ford 7.3 starter the spacer is not needed. Sounds like your guys are telling you the starter gear is too small in diameter. That doesn't make sense. Could have possibly have gotten a hold of a 6.0 starter instead of the 7.3? Here's photos of the 2 styles of 7.3 starters. One was used from '83-93 and the other from '94-03.
