Just to remind myself, I'm still working on turning a pre-FI 300 into a diesel engine.

Anyone know where I should be looking for an injection pump that can handle 6 cylinders? I think the 6BT pump will be a little much for a 4.9L? Maybe I can get one of those and turn it back, though...

Ultimately, I'd like to convert this F150 to diesel. I think that if I can get the 300ci to run diesel, that'd be "the cat's meow" in terms of swap-ability, and still looking somewhat stock. (Even having basically the same engine, with minor changes, different head, different exhaust manifold, since I'd be using an EFI intake with the "box" cut back, and the standard log exhaust manifold, most likely.)
