I thought some folks here would be interested in a winter project the shop has going this year. As some of you may know, the 6.0l Powerstroke is far from the most reliable engine ever produced. While the Cummins 5.9L, at least before the common rail engine was introduced, is legendary for it's reliabilty. We have a customer that has two F350's with 6.0L's. His '03 blew up, so we pulled the engine from his '06 and put it into his '03, then started the long process of swapping a 12 valve Cummins 6BT into his '06. It started coming together this week and I snapped a few pictures. Working on the newer Fords is a little tricky as there isn't enough space to do much with the body still on it. Here's the engine sitting in the frame. It's a used engine, so we are addressing some common issues before it's together. Right now we are installing a keeper on one of the front cover dowels that has a tendency to fall into the gearing and cause a catastrophic failure. Here's a shot of the adapter to bolt the 5R100 transmission to the Cummins. We are using an ATS torque converter and billet flex plate. The transmission had to be moved 3 inches rearward and the drivelines will have to be modified. The custome engine mount plates and mounts. And a shot of what it looks like with the cab back on the truck. The engine fits like it's suppose to be there.
