Q: Gas to diesel conversion

asked by on

I would like to know if my gas tranny is compatible with a diesel engine that will fit the bellhousing.

A diesel engine has so much more torque than the gas counterpart and I would have to guess the transmission will work but the parts inside are not strong enough to handle the torque of the diesel engine and may damage it in a short time.
