Ok I'll try to keep this short. I'm looking to build a 2wd diesel sled puller. It is a non street class, 530ci limit gas or diesel.
I have a E350 ambulance chassis with the 7.3 and the 4r100
. It currently has what i beleive are blown HG(s) I am going to pull the cab to check out the HG situation and if for some reason i find somthing else wrong, cracked pistons, very worn cylinders or such I'm going to dump the 7.3 and drop in a 98 12v ppump.
Here is where my questions come into play. What would be the cheapest/easiest way to drop the 12v in it? Like i said this is a non street driven class. So no need for alternators,lights, and any extra stuff.
I have the stock dodge 2wd trans that is attatched to my 12v.
I was thinking that i could use either the stock cummins trans, and just use the manual selections on the shifter, then i wouldn't have to buy a adaptor plate to run my 4r100
.. As i had originally planned on just using the 4r100
and locking the T/C with a switch and running the Manual selection of 1,2,r,n,p..?
