Would like to know if a 1994 3500 Dodge Cummins diesel engine with a 5 spd. Transmission can be enterchanged into a 1994 Ford F450 truck. Both are 2 wheel drives and both are standard transmissions

Very doubtful without LOTS of modifications. Engine Computer, wiring harness, clutch, bell housing, radiator hoses, fan shroud. My neighbor had a shop try to do that many years ago by putting a Dodge Cummins into a Dodge truck before they were available with diesel engines. It wasn't pretty and ended with a lawsuit, lots of expense, and the job wasn't even half done after they spent all the money he was told it would cost for labor, after he supplied the engine.
