Powerstroke Question.....

Paging Bones......


Will a 97 Powerstroke go into a 2000? I know the intakes are different, but will they swap? I found a 2000 that needs a motor also

good god man

lower blocks are the same, injectors are different, but you should be able to put the 2000 injectors into the 97 heads.

as you already said, the intake runners are different (97 is 2", 98 is 3"). No idea if the runners swap from one to the other though, but I would guess they would... you would have to swap the runners to use the 2000 turbo... turbos are different, you would have to use the 2000 manifolds, up-pipes, turbo, and all the piping.

the 97 has a lift pump mounted in the valley of the block just in front of the turbo.The 2000 uses an electric pump instead, so you would just have to remove that lifter pump and put a freeze plug in the hole (it is tappet driven off the cam) and leave the stock 2000 system as is. That means putting the 2000 fuel bowl onto the 97 motor, again *should* bolt on

front accs might be a little different, but should all bolt up (you would have to use the 2000 to make sure it packages)

Then you get into the small details of fuel line fittings, etc. You might have to spend a couple bucks at Parker if something doesn't seem to fit.

trying to make things difficult?

Is the 2000 a auto or man?

Its an auto.... That sounds like to much work.... I may look into pulling it fixing it and putting back it in.... and the guy with the 97 is thinking about parting that one out.

I was told it dropped a valve, I'm going to look at it on saturday. I don't suck at life this week because a lot of people (3) paid up that have owed me $ for months


*Edit* it only has 160k on the clock

my 94 dropped a valve, but I got lucky that it didn't scar the cylinder walls that bad. You might get lucky and only have to hand hone the one cylinder, or you might have to get it bored out and get an oversized piston.

In a nutshell the long blocks are the same.
Whats different;
Timing cover, injectors, turbo, pedestal, wye, siamese, up pipes, exhaust manifolds, down pipe, intake plenums, entire wiring harness, computers (ECM,GEM), all accessories such as alt., a/c, and their respective brackets, fuel system, auto trans the TCM and harness. All the above items will swap from a SD to an OBS long block or vise versa.
But all in all if a diesel "drops a valve" which is extremely rare there is no such luck as getting by with only scratching a cyl. wall. There is almost no clearance between the piston top and the head. An item as little as a glow plug tip will break a piston all to hell, let alone something as big as a valve.
