Hi all long time since I've loged on, I have the opportunity to get all the bits to do a diesel conversation on my truck. What I need to know is what hoops will I need to go through to get through MOT and Taxed it on completion.

No hoops, simply fit engine, notify your insurance of the modification, frugally drive to the MOT station.
You can change fuel type on the logbook at your discretion, however the important one is to make sure it’s insured as an engine swapped vehicle. It just stops pc plod taking it off you, fining you and giving you points to boot.
