Smile Older guy, new here!

Greetings to all powerstroke fans!. I am 57 years old and have been a mechanic literally since I was a kid! When other kids played ball I played with wheels and motors! It didn't matter if they were usually lawn mowers and bicycles they had wheels and motors! I am not a babe in the woods with diesels but new to " electronic control " diesels and am wanting to swap a 7.3 powerstroke into a 1966 Ford N 600 . I have several friends who are familiar with these motors but any advice from any of you folks who have done this would be greatly appreciated!

Just an idea here, if you're used to mechanically injected diesels, swap a 12v in or a 4bt.
Right off the bat you'll need a standalone harness for the 7.3, and probably a donor truck.


Oh and idk if you meant to, but your prof pic is upside down.

Greetings Connor! I do have a running donor truck,I think I can swap the whole harness and computers although if someone makes a replacement "swap style" harness that may be easier than removing the original harness
