Biodiesel Modifications

Hey everybody,
I am looking at a cheap used truck to use biodiesel with (I was looking at a Ford-F250 1991) and I read, with Pre 1992 diesels, you need to swap the natural rubber gaskets and tubes for synthetic ones. How hard is it to change the tubes and the O-Rings on a 7.3 litre IDI engine and what other things need to be swapped out with a 1991 ford truck with biodisel.

Thanks,
Sirnobody

Welcome to FTE and the biodiesel forum! All I've changed was the rubber hoses on our trucks. Have had 0 problems with any "o" rings. Real simple to do........
