Search button...........

(PS: You will find results that answer your questions... I did in under 3 minutes)

I'm against the idea of a 6BT in a F150 by the way.... the truck won't support the weight nor hold up to the torque... but all that can be found in the search results too....

Asking the same basic question over and over is......well...........use the search button,and did you ever look through 93_4bt PICTURE BUILD??? There are so many pictures to look at,but be aware these are real pictures,and not comics,or cartoons.....so do yourself a favor,and use the search,and read the tech stickies at the top of each forum:idea:bounce

Why don't you just contact Ford Cummins,or look at their website...this is a 4bt site so the majority of swaps are the 4bt.....that's a real no brainer:rasta::eek:bouncebounce

I look forward to your 'dude my sh*t broke in half' thread!

Anywhoo.... good luck with 'guy who did the swap' for the one guy another 20 have done it and realized what a complete waste of time it was........

Just a word of advice next time.... drop the ego and listen to the two guys who originally attempted to give you advice (both of which have near or above 1,000 posts and 3+ years of membership)

But hey... what do they know.......

Merry Christmas to you!!! Did you contact Fordcummins about their kit??? Did you guy tell you the best way was for you to put the 6bt on a pallet in the bed??? Fordcummins also sells an install book,with PICTURES in it,so that may help you......and,I have two Cummins 6's,,,one pushing about 400hp,the other at about 300hp,and I have a p pumped 4bt Jeep project,and several other diesels........;):D By the way,you were the one asking the same thing over and over,and not accepting any kind of answer,especially in regards to safety concerns.....

sorry guys no excuse i was tryin to act like i know what i was doin but really got no idea. i know my truck tho and during the build at all if i dont think its safe ill fix whatever it is. im careful cuz i dont wanna hurt my truck and anyone in it. yes i contacted fordcummins and goin to git the install book just in case. and i got a buddy lined up to do any weldin i need. and when it comes to hp all i want is between 250-300.
