Hello: 2004 SMB converting gas to diesel
I have been watching and enjoying the forum for some time. I was trying to find a diesel, 4x4 in good shape, and in budget, in my area without success. So recently I purchased a 2004 SMB E250 5.4 gasoline 2wd van, and with the help of my local diesel shop am going to convert it to a 6.0 diesel with a Timberline 4x4 DIY kit.
The original van's interior and body are in good condition and was local. The donor truck, a 2006 Ford F350 6.0 diesel 4x4, was a craigslist find, not so local.
The 6.0 diesel motor is currently being rebuilt and today the 5.4 gas engine left the vehicle.
I look forward to hearing input from others and sharing the process as we go forward.
