    Diesel Engine Option

    Hi so I understand I spoke to they're technical guy I was wondering if the sierra 1.8Td or mondeo one fits without any mods to the chassis i.e. if the mounting brackets from the donor are used & if it was relatively straighforward fit also if the slightly later mondeo version had more horsepower. Tempted as I am a bit of a fan of diesel & if using only a 6 gallon fuel tank with diesel economy it would mean less refills. Ta for the replies fellas John
  3. HiAnyone fitted a Ford diesel i.e 1.8Td from a sierra or Mondeo I have been told that they can be fitted to the type 9 Gearbox I was wondering how difficult this is & what sort of performance does it have. I have a 2B I prefer diesel & finding it a bit difficult to obtain a good SOHC 2 litre Inection Pinto .If anyone has fitted a diesel Ford I would like to know of any pitfalls before buying a diesel donor.
