I heard from Dave you are thinking of a diesel swap?

If you haven't already you should document your build in the build thread. Looking forward to seeing what you do.

thanks easye on the parts find.i did come across that in my c.l searches with not a lot out there in parts! as soon as I start to tear it down I will start my build thread with pics.and we have been talking about doing a diesel swap in it but we are trying to keep as much original parts as possible but also make it somewhat unique.problem I am having is the stock gears are 488 and that drive train with that gearing will not be a good combo for a diesel.so its a axle swap or I did find a willys wagon with a good running factory inline 6 in it.mine came with the 4cyl and I would like to do more than 45mph top speed!! The build will start as soon as my boat is put up for the winter and I have the extra room in my shop to tear it down.
