Hey, oregon people! I really need some help here. I got a real nice 1978 Ford Shortwide. Of course with gas they are not cheap to drive. SO I am going to swap in a diesel. I really need some help with what options are out there for a truck like this. I know the cummins 4bt is the way to go, however they are extremely hard to find, and with my redneck approach to cool projects like this, I am not join do drop 4k on a van, then another 2k to go thru the engine and make sure its in good running order. I, like many ford nuts, prefer to network, barter, and get what your looking for. So I am looking to get a good deal on a used 4 cylinder diesel that I can go thru in my garage over the winter and do the swap. FYI as far as some trading I got a really cool stick that goes "bang" worth about a grand, and oh I got a 3/4 ton front end converted to fit the 1/2 body. 70's model. Guys, let me know what out there thanks!
