from what i read on here, that is one of the easier swaps around. i have a '77 f100 and it motors along beautifully. it even pulls around 4 tons relatively easily.West Aussie here, Just starting to do my home work for a Cummins into a
1990 F150. Orginal 351windsor ZF 5 speed, 3.5 gears. Was thinking of the
6bt but after being on here for a while the 4bt might be more what I'm after.
i bought my engine, with ford manual adaptor from queensland motor recyclers. the engine cost me $ 3850. i used a few bits and bobs i had here to fit it. i reckon i had it in and driving for $5500. just spent $1800 on my injector pump. it had sat with water in it, and shit itself majorly.Briney,
Where abouts did you get your 4BT from? and how much roughly did the conversion cost you. I had a quote from a guy over this way and he estimated anywhere between 15k and 20k but that sounded a bit extreme.........
Yeah I'm reading the same in the forum that my conversion should be pretty straight forward.
