What did you do about the power brakes, the junk man used hydroboost from a diesel f350, but hooked it to the mopar pump from the donor truck.

Funny but true, the junk man bought a newer 3500 dodge to replace the old ford, then after comparing the two, he sold the dodge because he didn't think it would hold up.

I'm wondering the same thing as rusty. I've been seeing my f-150 blowing coal in my dreams.

Well that depends on a lot of factors. I got my motor from a family member. All said and done I have about 3500 to 4 k in it. I'm up to 6000 miles now, not the first issue knock on wood....
