That turned out very well; those old dash components can be so fragile. I really like the grafted WTS location. Does the digital odo display get a signal as well? Looking good!

Thanks guys. Yes, the odometer is completely functional. I swapped the 05 sensor in the rear axle with an OBS sensor and both speedo and odometer work normally. I'm finishing up the dash details now (wiring and vacuum lines) and then I'll get the floor cover down, bench seat back in and doors on. Should look like a complete truck at that point. Need to run the polisher over the cab before putting the bed back on (still sanded to 2500 grit).

Default body swap.

I just last night purchased a 1975 supercab, I have a wrecked a 1993 f 250 with a good running 460. for right now I want to get the body swapped over. I have future plans of the super duty axle swap and a engine swap. for now I just want to get the body swapped and drive the truck till funds are saved to do each part in stages. I am very interested in if the body are pretty straight forward to swap, knowing the electronics will be a chore in its self. thanks for any info I know this thread was written a while ago plus Im new to forums. thanks again

I have to believe swapping a supercab will be the same process I did here with the regular cab. The area to measure is how far back the engine is set in the 93 versus the 75. I never measured with this project, but with the firewall work I had to do, I believe the 70's trucks had the engines a couple inches more forward than the later trucks. Then again... the 460 may be an easier fit since is doesn't have the turbo, up pipes and down pipe.

Modding the wire harness for the gas engine is extremely easy compared to modding the diesel harness. I've done one 460 harness (video link) and many many... many 7.3 harnesses. If you need any guidance when the time comes, let me know.

Mark,
How’s the 78 project? Is it done? Any photos?
