Re: 7.3 to Allison adapter plate

Is it for Snow White

2006 Triple Turbo Dodge

7.3 injectors are like greeters at wal mart. They are there and they do there job, but you can't ask them to do anything quickly or they will get confused and give up.

Re: 7.3 to Allison adapter plate

These adapter plates are pretty easy to make.

Modern laser/plasma cutters are incredibly accurate, to the point where they now need to know the precision you want on bolt holes to make them fit.

I've got a CAD file for the bolt and pin holes for the 7.3 bolt pattern and a 3rd gen Cummins bolt pattern. It wouldn't take much to get the bolt pattern CAD'd for the Allison and then just get a laser cutter to crank out adapter plates for people who want to do conversions.

I might want to do an Allison swap. If someone CAD's the bolt pattern on an Allison and shares it, I'll share my CAD file for a 3rd Gen Cummins bolt pattern.

Deal ?

Aside: In case it wasn't clear, I built the adapter plate for my conversion. I've got over 50,000 trouble free miles on it.

Re: 7.3 to Allison adapter plate

I am not interested in cutting any adapters for anyone or selling anything. DO NOT PM ME about this.

I think this community should develop a CAD file that anyone can take to a cutter and get the pieces for an adapter plate made. It wouldn't take much.

I AM NOT WILLING TO DO THIS MYSELF. But I will contribute my CAD files and advice to the effort.

The first step is for someone to CAD an Allison bolt pattern and share it.
