    I have a line on 1986 2wd 3/4 ton. I plan on going to look at it tomorrow. Anyway he says it has a pretty straight body but it has a blown head gasket in 6.2 diesel. I really just want it for a cruiser but was curious as to how much would be involved in swapping it over to gas. Or what is the possibilty a head gasket could just be replaced? I don't know much about diesels so any help is appreciated.

    I've done the swap. Here's a post that I made that has quite a bit of info:

    I'd fix the head gasket. Better in the long run, at least in my opinion.

    If you have to be emissions tested, that can introduce a whole new can of worms.

    If it's just a head gasket, I'd fix that, myself.
