Re: 460 to 7.3 idi engine and transmission swap question
Actully the 460 and diesel share the bell housing pattern. the diesel has an adaptor plate on it. The gear ratios may or may not be the same, but remember the 460 had more power than the diesel of that era. As far as the motor mounts just leave them on the diesel and they will slide right back in the new truck. It really should be an easy swap since there is very little electronics and youll have the donor truck. The main advantage of this swap would be the fuel economy.
