Not to be a Debbie Downer, but swapping in a non turbo'ed diesel and 3 speed auto seems to be a waste of time and money. I get the cheap part, but you really gain nothing in the swap, and IMO would...

Drag link is the same on all years, I could have sworn the tie rod was slightly bigger in the late models, but I cant find where I read that.

I believe there is a small caveat here.

The 247 shifter bezel assembly will shift the 242, but the shift pattern will change.

On my '99 with the 4.7 and 247 the shifter is strait back. On the...
