Hello from Alaska

Hi. I've joined this forum to help with a restoration project of my mom's 1984 Ranger XL.
We have the 2.2 perkins from another ranger, with transmission, that we're getting ready to swap in. Her I-4 hasn't run properly and we now the diesel will get 30+mpg. Any advice information on the diesel would be appreciated!
Also looking at doing some cosmetic upgrades. Like getting rid of the 14" rims and going to 16-17s. Where should I look for that?

Thanks in advance,
ak_cowboy

Thanks for all the warm welcomes guys! Does anyone know of any easy upgrades to the perkins? I'm already doing an intake and exhaust, but wasn't sure of anything I can do to a non-turbo diesel that will really help it out.
