I bought the truck used. It came from the LA Fire department. I was able to track down the shop manager for the fire department. I was told, since the 6.4 was so problematic they did not do any of that work in-house, they always sent it in to the dealer for any major service. I'd have to assume the motor swap was done at a dealer. I don't have access to fords vehicle history reports. I called a few dealers and they seam to only give me info on work they have done. I doubt they logged into the ford dealer services, because as I understand it, ford should have a complete record of every service done at any dealership. Also the engine that was installed was a ford part number re manufactured engine
Ford Mechanic: James, Ford Technician replied 3 years ago
It looks like the engine was replaced at 62219 miles by Caruso Ford Long Beach CA. It was replaced in October 14 2013. Does this help at all?

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
