1976 f150 with a 460 looking to go diesel?

This 1976 ford f150 4x4 has a punched out 460 that loves to drink gas. Thinking I might like to with a diesel engine. One that gets decent mpg and can pull a 4 horse stock trailer down the road and up a few hills. What diesel motor and manuel tran would be ideal for the old ford. 6.9 or 7.3 idi. Or just go psd. Just a few things that come to my mind.

i'll probably get ragged on for this but I say go with a 12v cummins, I have one in my Bronco and it was easy to do, tows awesome and gets good fuel mileage.
I love my powerstroke but the wiring is the biggest hassle and the idi just doesn't have the power of the cummins

Your not going to get ragged by me on that. I have a 06 ford that might end up with a 12v cumm in it. How did ur 12v bolt up to the np 205. Were did u get the motor mount kit from or build.

I run a powerstroke ZF5 with a ford-cummins adaptor plate, the NP205 bolts right up with a little notch cut in the flange for the tc shifter linkage and I built my own motor mounts.
