Usually these deals pop up and they're in another state or something. Yesterday I got an e-mail craigslist alert and it turned out the truck was only 18 miles away.

D250, Cummins, 5-speed, power windows and locks, cruise, cold A/C and EVERYTHING works! Brand new tires. I went there and drove it, drives great! It's got some bumps and bruises, but I found zero rust on it.

$4,000 is a really good price, so I was kind of joking with the guy when I stepped out of the truck from the test drive, and I said "If you'll take $3,000 for it, we'll just drive 3 blocks down to the bank and get the cash."

To my surprise he said: "Okay"! hammer

It's a fixer-upper, but I FINALLY got a Cummins 5-speed! grin

That is sweet deal, congrats!

You didn't say what year is is though. The early 91's aren't intercooled and the 91.5's are kind of a red headed step child.

Will the 1992 Cummins bolt into the frame of a 2500 1994-1995?

Can the Getrag be used in a 1994-1995 ?

Is the overall width and spring mounts of a 1992 axle that has the Dana 61 with 3.06 ratio transplantable into the rear of a 2500 1994-1995?

I had a 92 beater I paid $900 for several years ago. It was ugly, very ugly, had 350K on the odometer that didn't work most of the time. I don't know what it was about that truck but it was fun to drive. I kept it a few years then sold it just because I really didn't have the room, I wish I would have kept it.

I think the 12 valve engines will bolt to 94-98 chassis, I doubt anything else will after taking apart several of both generation trucks. twocents

The engine will fit. The Getrag assembly is about 1.125 inches shorter to the cross member and the starter is different and is clocked to the adapter differently. There may be issues with frame clearance. The rear is also shorter but I don't remember by how much, .75 inch on each side if my memory serves me. The wheel studs are different size also. I know newer D80,s and AAM rears have been swapped into 1st gens so it could be done the other way too but not a bolt in. The biggest hurdle would be the starter to frame interference and the length of the Trans to crossmember.

However having said that you could use the adapter, starter and trans from the 2nd gen on the VE pumped engine.
