74 F250 efi conversion

Post  BigBlockRanger on July 24th 2015, 9:26 am

I have been contemplating converting the F250 to efi for a while now so it will be a better driver in the winter months and more wife friendly should she ever need to take the boys to mow a yard.

I was going to just convert the existing engine until I spotted an ad on craigslist for an 1996 EFI460 and E40D trans for $400. Engine and trans were still in the truck and only had 116k on the odometer. I went and looked at it, it ran, and I left them a deposit. They got the truck because they wanted to make a trailer out of the utility bed and had no use for the rest. They pulled it, and just a about everything I would need make it run....... including the entire dash!

Anyway, Looks like I have some work to do now!

Don't do it. Teach the wife how to work a choke.

Not my wife. She does not have a mechanical bone in her body. I have no problems with Ford's EEC-IV system. I've messed with it on several other projects with great success.

Mostly looking forward to having that extra gear in the trans!
