Scored two IDI's recently. An 89 7.3 earlier this summer, and I got a 84 6.9 the other day.

The 7.3 - Motor, 2wd ZF5, wiring harness, motor mounts, shifter, pretty much everything minus the powersteering pump. All that for $200. The guy said it's only got about 111k on it too.

The 6.9 - Motor, wiring harness, motor mounts both the rubbers and the metal ones that go on the frame, shifter, radiator, fan shroud, block heater, pto for a T19, bellhousing, clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing. Pretty much everything between the trans and rad support for $205. Even had the motor running before I started pulling it.

I think I made out like a bandit on both of these deals. I traded the 2wd ZF and a brand new Napa clutch kit for a 4x4 4spd that goes to the 6.9s, t case and brand new clutch kit.

I think the 7.3 and the trans are going to go into my 89 and I'll play around with the 6.9 this winter then use it for the 77 project. So many projects....so little money... :cry:

Got the 7.3 and the 4spd sitting on the frame. Just my luck the 6.9 motor mounts don't work and neither does the trans crossmember. I pretty much destroyed my crossmember trying to fab up one that would work...it's pretty nasty now. I'll be stripping down my 89 so I'll get a shot at trying to make something work with V8 mounts and a fresh crossmember. :pissed

Scoring another 6.9 and a spare set of 7.3 heads. Motor is complete. Just needs put together. All I have to buy is a gasket kit. Might use my 7.3 as a bolt donor if I can't get it to start. It's the 87 block, too so I don't have to worry about it cracking

This one will be my third, lol. A 7.3 and two 6.9s. The later blocks are stronger. The early ones cracked where the block heater mounts at.
