So i started pulling the motor about a week ago and i just about finished it up today. Here are some pics.

Starting to pull it out.


New to me 12v with 143k

Then i cleaned the motor did away with the stock lifter pump and other things. Built the alt and a/c mounts.

Next i was thinking about taking my power steering lines apart and bringing them to a shop to have new ones made. But after looking at them i didn't need to get new ones made after all. The factory dodge has the same fitting as the ford line at the hydro boost.

I took that line off and put thedodge one in its place.

I just had to straighten out the line a lil bit and it fit great.

Next i got the flywheel from a friend and got the bearing put in by a machine shop. I called south bend clutch and the man that handles all the engine swap stuff told me this is exactly what they do. It is a 6205 bearing and just about any bearing shop or oreilly's has it. At oreilly's its more expensive and the part# number is a 205FF.

Finally my adapter plate came in from destroked and i was able to drop the motor in place.

Ill get more pics and update tommorrow im tired and ready for bed!!! Let me know what yall think.

What about your A/C did you get the tach kit? So how does the stock 12v compare to the 6.0? Have you done all the free HP mods to the 12v yet?

Thanks for the help.
That is good to know. I figured anything would be better than what I have now. Hope you get that ac working it's starting to get a little warm around here. It was near 90 yesterday.

Glad to hear that AC is working.

What does the tach show at idle?
I don't really know but that does sound a bit high for idle. how does it sound?

BTW, what did you use for your airconditioning compressor mount?
