check out diesel generators. northern tools has a selection of engines also, i think some diesel as well.
also a small tractor engine maybe but i bet even the smallest tractor would be a bit big for your mule.
also welders, most are gas but some are diesel.
and yea, makin a gasser into a diesel wouldnt be very easy. i guess you could overcome the low compression ratio with forced induction but you'd prolly blow head gaskets at that point. and look at chevy, they converted a 350into a diesel in the 80's i think it was, and it was JUNK.
on a forced induction side note a buddy and i used a smog pump to make a blower for his lawnmower, worked well just had to keep the throttle around half or she'd start freakin out. his wife opened the throttle wide open one day and wondered why it went BOOM after a few seconds.
