Auto or manual?

Auto: C6. Non lockup converter, non overdrive, 3 speed. Can be built cheap, and be tough as nailes. Non lockup converter and non overdrive kinda sucks...
Manual: T-19. Non overdrive. Tough as hell, could probably fill it with gravel and it would be fine (might be exaggerating!).

If its a 5 speed manual, its a ZF5

86 means its a solid axle...you lucky SOB

Only use beru or motorcraft glowplugs. Cheapest place to get them is rockauto for around $9 a piece. To test the ones in it, use an ohm meter. Truck has to be cold and not ran for at least a couple hours. Should read 1-1.5ohms (disconnect wiring on top of glow plug and test.

The C6 is probably the best trans ford has ever made. No idea how a non locking trans can survive, but they take a beating. They use a much tighter torque converter (less slip) than a E4OD. Put a big trans cooler on it and they last a long time. No idea about reverse not working though.

Only a diesel C6 will work, but they should be easy to find.

Not to bad. Might have to beat the tranny tunnel some for clearance, install the pedals, the clutch master cylinder, etc.

Honestly, I would find a T19. It may not have overdrive but with taller tires it does alright. I turn 2000rpms at 60 or there abouts, with 285's

I don't know about converting 2wd trannies to 4wd
