Re: 92 Bluebird, want to put in 290 cummins by Phil Feinstein
Post New Message Do some research on the F700 and F900 series trucks (what your bus is based on) and look into Navistar straigt trucks as well (used to be international harvester, but uses Ford parts and vice-versa)

Get out your tape measure and look at how much room there is between the firewall and the radiator support. see how much room there is between the frame rails and from the top of the motor mounts to the hood (when it's closed)

The research will tell you what motors were available for your vehicle and the measurements will tell you what you can ultimately fit under your hood. Always take into consideration anything the goes into the engine compartment (Brake master and booster, steering shaft, heater core, etc.) because you will have to plumb around them.

Hope that helps!
