my 1987 ranger 2.3 liter diesel

i was just wondering how hard would it be to get my engine rebuilt in my 87 ranger. It is a 2.3 liter diesel with a 4spd manual with overdive. i was also wondering how much would it probably cost

Too bad it wasn't an 88, they turbo charged the diesel ranger in 88.

No. The diesel was in production until the end of the 1988 model year. There was a 2.2L and a 2.3L diesel.

The 2.0L was a gas engine.

Just the fact that it's a diesel is awesome to me, mods or not. Have you found a way to get it rebuilt yet?
