Donor vehicles besides the S-10,
Chevy Chevette, Isuzu I-mark sedans, Isuzu pup trucks. Because those years
were mechanical fuel injection, ie gear driven injector pump, swapping gas
to diesel is not that hard.
Oldsmobile Cutlass Cieras had a diesel V-6, again mechanical injection, had
a standard Chevy bolt pattern for bell housing.
I have been halfheartedly looking for one, but I have never seen one except
in pictures that another poster on the group sent to me. I asked for more
(like some of the whole truck) but never saw them...
That was a bummer...I really wanted to see the whole truck.
You can see the pictures I was sent here:
(WARNING! These pictures are quite high resolution and may take a LONG time
to download! They are also posted without-really-asking-if-it-was-OK, so
they might disappear if the owner objects...)
Someday I'd like to find a good running (that's the primary concern) example
of a Diesel Chevette. I drove one a long while back.
