Can 2008 ford f350 6.4 crank without transmission?

strange question
as to think why the transmission would be missing

motor will crank with the starter motor if transmission has failed

automatic transmission has a neutral safety switch
if that is faulty the starter may not crank

if a stand alone motor
starter motor will need to be bolted on and spaced to match the flywheel teeth

spacing has to be exact replacement for the missing gearbox housing thickness

Depends on the engine. If there are a lot of them out there($300 to $400 range), it might be to your advantage to get one with lower miles than yours.

I cannot find my igition module olsmobile cutlass1993

you don`t say if this is 4 or 6 cylinder motor. if its a 4 the module is bolted on the back of the motor firewall side with the ignition coils attached to it. note the crank sensor is fastened to the module and sticks into the motor so when you pull the ignition module the crank sensor will come out with it. on a 6 its located at the front of the motor(rad side) near the bottom of the motor and the coil packs are fastened on top of the module, and has electrical plugs connected to it. the module is bolted to engine with 3 bolts and the coils come off with the module. its easier to remove the assembly from under the car.

Replace the timing belt and the car will not crank

Always crank motor over by hand with a ratchet or breaker bar before attempting to start with key. You can very well ruin or lock up your motor if the timing is incorrect before you try to start with key. If its locked up, unhook battery. Place ratchet and socket on crank pully. rotate in reverse and then try to rotate forward. If there is anything holding the motor from turning by hand, pull timing belt and make sure everything is aligned correctly and try to crank by hand again 2 or 3 revolutions. If tight or locked, then motor needs inspected for bent, jammed valves, broken pistons.

On the front of the motor at the bottom where the crank shaft comes out of the motor, the one with the largest pully, it will be mounted on the outside and has 3 or 4 wires going to it. If you remove and replace it make sure you get the correct air gap or it won't work.
