Re: 6.2L diesel

If it's been taken care of...and you don't mind a general lack of acceleration - sure. Mine works fine. Parts are a bit more expensive. By the way, is it a C-20 or a 4x4 (K20)?

Double check it is 4x4, if you need it.

Re: 6.2L diesel

i just called the fella back, he stated he was mistaken on being a 4x4 because of the 8 lug bolt pattern, ????? go figure, but he just told me that it want crank now, he thought it has a blown head gasket, but it won't even turn over. i might just let this one pass

I'd pass just because parts are spendy.

Re: 6.2L diesel

I haven't had problems with mine. I've heard stories, but I think most folks get them mixed up with the old 350 gas conversion diesels that GM made a while back. The 6.2 and 6.5 diesels were created as a strictly diesel motor with the Detroit Diesel Co. They're not the most powerful, but I haven't got stuck yet (knocking on wood), and have pulled a few people out of being stuck. There are differences between the electronically controlled injection pumps and the mechanically controlled ones (I hear you may need an FSD cooler for the electronically controlled ones). There are a few performance options out there also, but not nearly as many as for a gas motor. If it helps any, the Humvee's that the American military uses are mostly powered by the 6.5l diesel from GM.

Re: 6.2L diesel

I'm sure some did, and I hear that it's no too hard to swap in one if the one you get has an auto trans. How big are the log trailers? 6.2L's aren't too well known for HUGE pulling power - a (gulp) Dodge with the Cummins diesel might be better suited (although people pull travel trailers and car trailers with the GM's). But I still believe they are a good engine.(might be better with manual trans - GM diesels are somewhat notorious for 'burning up' the GM 700R4 auto trans).
