88 D150 12V conversion

bought the 88 when my 53 block cracked in my 2nd gen truck had 177000 original kms nothing had been touched on it has original paint this i a pretty big deal when you live in southern ontario



bought the rims and tires for 300 bucks and drove it for a year before i got tired of the fuel mileage 10.5 mpg
had my 90 d250 that i drove in high school body was shot frame was shot motor and trans worked great so it was time for a transplant





needless to say swap was pretty straight forward

disassembling the donor

New to Forums. Have an 86 150, and a 92 250 with a IC 12 valve. Want to do this swap. What did you do, that you havent listed?
Fab up motor mounts?
Change out the fuel system? New tank?
As for your harness, did you just fully pull the body harness out, or use the Cummins one, and the gas job?
Can I get your facebook info to talk on there? Dont use forums.

Colt,
There are 50+ threads on the 1st gen forum that answer all questions.
Using this forum rather than Facebook for the needed info on this swap, would be much better info, in my option.
