    Gimme the correct pn#'s and i will...or feel free to reply with the numbers. The only numbers I got with my starter were 'in store' numbers that don't cross reference for you guys. (Canadian parts chain)

    I am still not sure what i am paying yet. i need to work a few things out. The guy that has the yard might take my old M1009 for it. That would be the best for me. paid 600 for the truck.......but i think that would be to good to be true. Guess i will find out soon. mike

    as for the 5 speed, i think they are awesome transmissions. One of the main problems they had was the overdrive gear nut coming loose. They have a fix for it, and you can actually repair it with the tranny in the truck IIRC. I just rebuilt an nv4500, not hard to rebuild either.

    good luck on the swap

    I have two engine choices at this point a 6BT or a 7.3 PS, my uncle gave me both of the engines from his shop. :D Now if I could only find a mint crew cab to put one of them into. :cool1:

    I am pretty sure i lost it. It has not been there for long. He has had some crazy offers for it that there is no way i could even fork over that much right now. I didnt know these CTDs where so wanted. oohhh well......

    OK some guy came to his yard and offerd 7500 for the whole truck. :yikes: that is not even close to driveable. So i am out. Am i missing something?? Will these motors go forever or something?? I cant see why it is worth that much.

    The motor alone can go for $4000-5000 used. Brand new ones are $10K+ and they are very popular motors so demand is higher than supply, much like the Dana 60 front axles have become.

    Dunno what ISB actually stands for, but the ISB motors are the newer 24-valve computer-controlled Cummins turbodiesels Dodge puts in the trucks.
