The Cummins is only paired with the Allison 5 or 5 speed, or with one of the Eaton or Spicer transmissions (inc. Eaton auto-shift). It is not currently available with a Ford transmissions. I'm not sure if it was in the past. I don't think any of the F650 transmissions would fit well under a van. They are all huge compared to the van/pickup transmissions.

Re: Cummins engine replacement for the 6.0.

Thanks carringb, if I were to do the swap I would probably try to go with the allison trans. anyways-but I'm not planning to do any swap anytime soon, just thinking about it. But I have a question for you that's off topic, I noticed that your van is a dually- I would really like to put a dually in the back of my van but then my sliding door would hit- do you have the double doors ? Any idea's on how I could put a dually under the rear of my van and still use the side door ? See my van has a snow plow that was installed by Pathfinder and a dually rear would greatly enhance my traction as well as make it much more stable at highway speeds. Would it be possible to switch from a sliding door to the double doors instead ? Any idea's would be greatly appreciated, Thanks !

Re: Cummins engine replacement for the 6.0.

I'm pretty sure the Allison 1000 from the GM pickups will fit. It fits the Ford pickups fine, and transmission clearance in the vans is about the same.

I can't see any way to make duallys fit with a slider. But I don't think it would be impossible to swap to barn doors. The main body structures are the same between the two door styles.

I wonder if Mattracks fit the slider vans?
