EMP Proof Diesel??

I'm looking to buying an older 70s or 80s, or possibly a 90's stick shift truck. Im not too familiar with what year certain makes diesel trucks were carburated and something about a points type distributor aswell. I am looking for the most basic manual shift diesel trcuk that has no electronics or very little electronics as possble. I believe early to mid 1980s fords and 1989-1997 dodge cummins diesels fits the criteria. Any knowledgeable feedback and what years, makes and models fit this criteira, thanks

Ok, I'll bite.

First off, diesel engines have never been carbureted. All diesels have their fuel injected directly into the cylinder.

Secondly, diesels are compression ignition engines meaning the heat developed during the compression stroke ignites the fuel. They don't have spark plugs like gasoline engines do.

I'm not sure about other brands but any 1993 or older Ford diesel will not have electronics.

You are going to want something that is not controlled by any thing like something with a exit 100 on i 40mechanical pump or if you are going with a gasser than it will need a carb points and mechanical fuel pump on it weather its a diesel or gas for the ford with the diesels with will be 1994.5 and below as for the gassers I dont know the year

Get a gen 1 cummins that's 89-93? Get the 5 SPd you'll want to go ahead and doable the fuel shut off solenoid and install a cable to the Manuel shut off lever also you might know a little bout a gasoline motor but use google and read up on the basics for diesel its almost apples to oranges
