1978 - 1985 Bronco Conversion to Diesel?
I'm new to the community and have owned both Broncos as well as full-size Blazers/Jimmys. Having owned both, I really do prefer the Big Bronco - the one thing I'm envious of is the big diesel offered by GM.
What with gas prices going up and up, I'm poised to buy a 1978 Bronco and I'd love to drop in a big Ford diesel engine into her. Has anyone done this before? If so, what do you recommend for the transplant (engine and trans)? It'd be great to find what would bolt up vs. what would need to be fabricated.
Any advice would be greatly helpful. If I could also drop in the later Ford Powerstroke diesel engine/tranny, I'd be up for that too. I plan to do a lot of towing, and with gas prices the way they are, it'd be nice to cruise in the Bronco filling her up on a steady diet of free vegetable oil.
