    You are out of luck.
    Cummins RECON program (the best new diesel deal in the market) no longer produces the 4BT/BTA.

    You'll need to look at yanmar or volvo for 4 cylinder diesels.

    There's a lot of small diesels, new and used that could replace the gas engine. Most diesels turn slower than gas engines but turn a bigger prop or one with more blades. The transmission is part of the equation.
