Following this thread! I love engine swaps and want to do a TDI in a ranger sometime. For now I have to content myself with a factory diesel 1983 ranger. It just doesn't have the power of a TDI though.
Glad to have ya here! I’ve been lacking in my posts lately. In real time, I just got the engine running, drivetrain is all together, and I am finishing up the list of small things that slows these kinds of projects down.

Yeah those little Perkins diesels don’t have a whole lotta go, but those trucks are definitely cool. The 1983 would be pretty similar to my 94/95 since the frame and suspension is similar, if not identical.

Here's some photos of it.
