Aloha from Hawaii!
I have a old 6x4 that I have to replace the engine on... again. I'm wondering if I can convert it to diesel instead of gas? Which engine would you all recommend? What else on the 6x4 would need to be changed?

Tammie

That's what comes to mind right now, I'm sure there is more. The diesel that goes in the 6x4 is the Yanmar 3TN66 and, like the FD620D gas motor, complete motors are no longer available from Deere. ....
