Diesel Rocky motor transplanted into Scat! Has it been done?

Gday all,

My brother has got an old petrol scat (F20V) which he is overhauling. At the moment there is a possibility of getting hold of a rolled diesel rocky (turbo??) and I'm just wondering whether anyone had any information about the swapping the rocky motor into the f20s. The scats did also come out in a diesel version but these are as rare as rocking horse sh#t. If needed I suppose we could just put the whole motor, box and t/case from the rocky in?

Any help would be appreciated.
Cheers
Josh

doing a complete swap motor/box/transfer would be the way to go. If the f20 has the gearbox with the detachable bellhousing you might be able to swap them.
need to think about diff ratios as well the f20s have 4.77-1 and the diesels run 3.36-1

Thanks mate, we might end up going that way if we can get the rocky for the right price, we were hoping to stick some bigger tyres on so the lower ratios would be quite an advantage! Still would be glad to hear from someone who has tried it before.

Cheers
Josh
