Not many diesels in my area. Has anyone converted a gas car to diesel.
Would the diesel bolt to the same transmissions as the gas engine? With
diesel engine mounts would it be a direct bolt in? Just neet to change
flywheel, clutch, wiring? There is an early 80's jetta with a manual and
gas engine for sale for $500. Thinking of buying it if it is decent and
putting a 1.6 turbo diesel in it at a latter date.

Any ideas apprecitated!!!

"Still if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed,
 if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not so costly, you may come
 to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a
 precarious chance for survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when
 there is no chance of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."

"And by the way, Mr. Speaker, The Second Amendment is not for killing
 ducks and leaving Huey and Dewey and Louie without an aunt and uncle. It
 is for hunting politicians like in Grozney and in 1776, when they take
 your independence away."   - Robert K. Dornen, U.S. Congressman. 1995
