I'm just guessing. You mentioned it was from a Ford truck of somekind so I
assumed it was the International motor (Navistar). International (as in
the tractor/truck company) has been making Ford's "Navistar"  diesel for
years (most if not all "Ford" diesels in the last 15 years). Speaking of,
I found a kick ass source for a turbo and IC...the '91 and up
International and Ford Buses with turbo diesels. The have a big honkin'
turbo (T04?) and a nice sized IC.  You can check out the IC from the
front...it's easy to see through the bumper and the grill. Now I just need
to find one in a yard somewhere (Matt: Doesn't Lucken's up in Winger, MN
have a bus yard too?).
