If you contact IDIieselman he can tell you from first hand experience and prolly tell you everything you need to know to get yours up and going as he did install a 7.3 idi in his old ford. And it is by far the nicest old ford of that body style I have seen like that and is still used daily.

That 460 must have been transplanted already. I don't think they put 460's in 3/4 tons in 79. But i may be wrong as that was 8 years before i was born LOL. But i thought the 79 250's came with 400's which are junk. I have a 78 with a 400 engine that is waiting to be ditched for a DT466
