    If it has spark plugs and wires leading from the distributer plastic cap, then it's gas. If it has solid tube lines going from a steel head to the head then it is diesel.

    A big "D" on the cap of the fuel tank was what tipped me off.

    Thanks for the insight everyone I can now figure that one out, as for the big D on the gas cap. Being 34 years old it has a chance it was possibly changed. The funny part is when I try and drive it. Ive got no idea how it even starts, what lever is the actual forward reverse, but I will figure it out eventually. Could make some good youtube footage though!!!!!!!
