Not me, but that would be a nice donor motor for the truck.

I had the slant 6 in a early 60's 1 ton dodge, It had the 4 speed with granny gear. I bet there would be just about any flywheel, clutch , bell housing available for you.

I have no idea what you will need to do to the motor mounts, sure it could be done.

The leaning-tower-of-power is also longer than the L6 so that may limit its usefulness in some applications.

Do you 'need' to keep a six or just like the idea of a newer six?

I have seen noted on other forums that there are several guys/companies making custom wiring harnesses these days.

I wonder if anyone has compiled a listing of who's doing what .....? That info could be very handy to have.

The aftermarket computer/harness setups are pretty nice. I run a 2.0 turbo Subaru in my sand rail. With the EMS Stinger CPU and harness, it only requires 12 wires to hook up to the vehicle to run the engine (power, fuel pump, electric fans). In comparison to swapping in a smog legal engine in California with OBD1 or 2 (which I have done on my Bronco), the standalones are a no brainer.

As easy as that was to set up, I can imagine other standalone units for engines like the pentastar etc would be a trick setup. If folks understood how simple the standalones are, there would probably be more modern engine swaps. Fuel injection really isn't all that scary. The only downside, is they are generally somewhat expensive.
