1996 F250 I6 - Crankshaft issue and mount question
Is it a common problem for the I6 crank to slip back if the truck overheats? The flywheel is no longer in line with the starter, so it will not start. The harmonic balancer is also against the timing chain cover, no clearance at all.
Someone told me that they would have to sleeve the first cylinder to fix this problem. That does not sound like it would correct the issue at all.
My next question is would a 5.0 (302) drop in or are the mounts wielded in a different location for the I6 trucks? I have not confirmed what transmission is in this truck, its either a C6 or E4OD (auto), but from what I have read, most of the engines that came in the truck was bolted to either transmission, so the motor mounts would be the problem I see if I decide to ditch the I6.
