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.
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.
Wanted a real crew, 8' bed, a cummins, and a reliable good mileage cummins at that. This is how I decided to go.
Buy a dodge, and buy a ford, put them together, get a Fummins!
