Plan on doing a project on the build forum. Should turn out to be a good project. However need to do some prep work.

I also have had some interest in this. I have a 99 cummins, ive thought about takein the motor out an keepin for when the 7.3 dies, but then again I have a 53 block so figured it wasnt worth the time. Has 276,000 runs like a top. Still a good idea though for anyone that wanted to. I will keep tabs on this build!

Ok, I have the stand alone computer for the 4r100. The engine has a PCM that is NOT from a dodge.

Will the motor mounts fit?
AC pump, does it need to be relocated?
Engine has a cable throttle, will a gas job cable for cc work?
Planning to keep the batteries the way they are.
Planning on a BD exhaust brake, will valve springs need to be changed?

Some crack, some dont. There's more info out there to check out the 53 you have, with some measurements to see if yours is likely to fail or not. I think the measurement was .230 at the freeze plug between 3 and 4. Thicker, and no reports of cracked. I know of some trucks worked real hard, beat on, blowing up transmission etc, with 53's and no cracks.
