Hey y’all! I just had a 1999 GMC 1 ton single cab, with a 545 gasser, and a 4L80 transmission given to me. I shortly found out that the motor was locked up from rust, from inspection I think the head gasket is bad. However I was wondering what Diesel motor would be the best to swap with the 545, How hard it will be, and the steps I’ll need to take? Any suggestions?

Welcome to DieselPlace

A 6.5L would be a great candidate but you would have to find a whole donor to swap parts over to the gasser.
You can post in the 6.5L section and inquire with the other members there about the details of the swap
