    The cheapest way to do this is to get a wrecked or rusted 504 diesel sedan, and swap everything over.

    The main things which you need to convert a petrol 504 to a diesel are:

    1. (404, 504, 604 or 505) diesel engine

    2. (504, 604 or 505) diesel engine mounts

    3. 504 diesel bellhousing (clutch housing)
    (i.e. diesel bellhousing for BA7 gearbox)

    4. 504 diesel radiator

    5. 504 diesel vacuum pump

    6. diesel input shaft for BA7 gearbox (maybe)

    7. diesel front springs (advisable, but not necessary)

    8. 3.7:1 diff ratio (advisable, but not necessary)

    9. speedo drive gear to suit 3.7 diff

    10. you also need to cut out the panel next to the radiator to make room for the diesel radiator.
