Which engine swap

Asked by Apr 10, 2012 at 01:42 PM about the 1992 Ford F-250 2 Dr STD 4WD Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1992 F250 5.8L engine is bad. Other than replacing it with another 5.8, which engine could I use that would not require a lot of other work to make it run, computer etc.

you can use the 5.0l or the 4.9 the computers are under the dash and quite easily swapped if necessary

5.0L, you will need an adapter plate for the bell housing on the transmission depending on the year.

apparently there's a 7.3L also, but gas is something like 8 or 10 mpg. not sure what you're trying to do with it, but hope this helps.

This truck is a beater, use it for delivering wood and doing some dump runs. Put approximately 1000 miles on it a year. It is not worth putting a rebuild in it so I thought I could pickup something at a wreckers that would do fine. Does not have to have lots of power as it never goes more than a few miles any time I go out with it.
