Looking into buying a 97 F-Superduty with a blown 7.3 and 5 speed trans. I currently have a dodge parts truck with a 12 valve and blown up 5 speed which I'm trying to sell. Is it worth all the effort to swap in the cummins? or should I just find a good running powerstroke if i want to go the route of the dedicated work truck? Thanks for the tips!
the only thing that concerns me with swaps like this is resale value. i have seen a few strokers with cummins engines in my area that they cant sell. if you plan on keeping it or dont expect to get much for it when you sell it go for it!
If a mod could move the thread that'd be great thanks. I agree on resale, you can't sell the truck to any old guy after a cummins swap. But I can't even get anybody to show up with cash for the damn 12 valve! Plus every powerstroke I find is already yanked from a truck, and I've been screwed too many times to make an investment on a non running engine. Thanks for all the replies! Keep em coming
