Default Rear end ratio.

Another thing to consider is the rear axle ratio.
If the transmission does not have overdrive, you may be going pretty slow at the rev limit of a Diesel engine.
Gasser FC,s may not have a “drop” front axle to clear the replacement Diesel engine.
I have not done this swap, repeating what others have experienced on this forum.
