673 diesel in an A50 truck

Recommended Posts

I'be got my self in a project that I know little about. Someone else has removed the 431 gas engine and trans from this truck. The engine is pretty much junk. Add in the fact parts are almost non-existent for this engine. Has anyone here had any luck installing a "B" model 673?

Thanks for the article. I think the 673 is pretty close to the original engine in size. I guess I will have to get the tape measure out and get started.

Sorry for the late reply. The engine is about 6 inch longer than the gasser. Other than that its pretty close. I also found the 673 from a b is very close to the steering box. There would be no way to install a R model engine unless the oil filters were remove mounted. The A 50 frame is about 6 inches narrower than the B frame.
