Gas to diesel engine
I have a 1997 Ford ranger that has a 2.3l gas
with a 5 speed manual transmission is there
a diesel engine that I could drop into it
It won't be a "drop" in conversion at all. Maybe a 4 cylinder Cummins or Kubota engine.
Check out the Ranger Station website. Maybe they will have some ideas.
I worked with a guy that put a Perkins in a Ranger but he said he would have been better off getting a 302 and putting it in. He said it was a total nightmare.
