Hi all- I was reffered to this site by a friend of mine; I am currently a freshman in college. Anyways, I have been interested in older trucks for quite some time (mainly any diesel powered commercial trucks from 1940s up to 1970s.) I was just curious if anyone here has ever put a Detroit in a Pickup before? I know of a couple people that put a 353T in a F250 Ford, a 453 in a Ford Bronco just to name a few. I'd love some more insight on putting one in a pickup. I was tossed between a 3208 NA Caterpillar, which is overkill for the 73 Ford 350 I was planning on putting it in, or a 353 Aluminum in something like a K20. I really think something like a 6v53 would be overkill, and a 6v71 would need some major modifications to fit under the hood of any pickup truck that I can think of. BTW- the 353 aluminum block has the back of the blower cast off, so it can be turboed, another reason for putting it in a pickup. Any insight to tranny, xfer, rear specs and anything else you can think of is appreciated. Thanks!!
