Ok so I have a 99 1/2 powerstroke and looking at buying a core motor and rebuilding the whole bottemed with the best rods and cam and other stuff for when my motor goes. I found a great deal on a 1997 motor. I do know the HPOPs were slittly different and that the 97 had single shots. Are the bottemends pretty much the same???

No, the bottom ends were beefed up between 97 and 99 model years.

From what I understand, you can't put a Superduty Crank in a '97 block, or maybe it's vice versa. Either the crank or the block was beefed up, making the swap impossible because of interferences.

I think rods would interchange, and probably cam's as well.

I'm sure someone knows for sure.
