E350 psd into f350 psd

Hi all
Brand new to this diesel thing.
Can anyone tell me the about the challenges involved with dropping an 1996 E350 7.3 PDS into an 1997 f350 with a cracked 7.3 block? A local salvage yard has the e350 "complete" 150,000 mi for $850.0. I'm sure this has been answered on this forum many time but I can't find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You have switch / change the Exhaust manifolds, oil dipstick, Valve covers and intake from Turbo out along with all brackets to fit the Econoline Engine in an F Series...Motor mounts are different too...At least I think they are.....All accessory brackets from F-series have to go on the E series motor as well....

If you are just going to swap over everything from your current engine to the long block van engine, I'd imagine you'd be good to go. Of course doing the dipstick and intake plumbing is necessary. The fuel bowl, or bowl drain, I believe is different as well, but I believe it may not be an issue for this application. Use all the current accessories on the front of the truck engine to the van engine. Do the best you can to verify it is a 1996 engine and not a 1997 van engine. I thought the van engines in 1997 went to different injectors and PCM. Split shot injectors I think is what I remember on the vans along with specific destination trucks too in '97. Hopefully someone else who may have done this chimes in. Seems to me though if you are using the short block, you'd be good.

Thank you to the guys that have responded. Your help is really appreciated.
After reading your replies I think that I will look a little harder for a truck engine. One point that interests me about a van engine is it's much more likely that it had an easier life no beating on it off road etc.
Thanks again

update but more problems

Good morning all

the good new is that I didn't have to change the engine, it turned out not to be the head was rusted through from the outside right above the exhaust manifold causing the water leak. I first thought it to be a cracked block. The new problem is that after changing the head used from a salvage yard, (because the truck isn't worth a new one) it won't start. We think that it because of air in the fuel lines. Any suggestions? Burning it isn't an option because it doesn't have the right insurance.
Thank you
