Ha, I figured you be all over this thread when I changed his title from engine swap to Cummins engine swap.

BTW, the other guy with the 6cyl has a Th400 behind his. Jason has a manual trans behind his. I'm trying to find the 6cyl guys thread, but his was built when he got here, so there isn't much tutorial with it, just Q&A about it.

Yes sir! Saw the cummins swap and thought I'd take myself a peak. I've had it in and out twice in the past six months due to the damn dowel pin that most pre 2003 cummins owners face.

Which tranny? What do you mean connection? Mount? Speedo? Driveshaft? Torque converter/clutch?
