'72 F250!! Wanna put a diesel in questions?

Guess this is the right forum...if not someone let me know

I have a super clean 72 F250 4x4 high boy that I was considering yanking the 360 out and putting a diesel into...
Anyone know of a good setup for this?
Would an older 7.3 work or a 5.9 cummins?
Does anyone know of another swap done similar to mine

thanks

in hate to say it but the cummins is probably your best bet.
they are mechanical injection and there are lots of performance parts for it.
i know quite a few people who have done this swap and it isn't that hard, i am thinking a bout doing it in my old 78 Bronco.

Cheapest and easiest probably would be a 12v. Put up pics of the truck you're working on, old hi-boys are cool. Can't imagine why you'd want rid of the 360,.
