Re: Chevy 6.2
answer to the original question.one of the best sources for info on gm diesels ,is the gm diesel page..ive owned 9 gm diesels,2 6.5 trucks 7 6.2 trucks or blazers and one 5.7 in a half ton.with exception of the 5.7, all have been very reliable trucks,still have all ,with exception of the 5.7 which failed,and 2 of the 6.2 trucks, which were sold with at or over 200k on them.most lived or continue to live a hard life.while power was not there high light,they for the most part are a reliable engine to own,simple to work on,and cheap.calling this engine a crappy one is not a fair assesment,i know way more people that were and are happier with 6.2 engines than fords new 6.0 . [reliability wise anyway]...
the fleet; ferds ,02'f350,01'f450, 11' f350 the generals ,82'2500, 82'2500 4x4, 82' blazer, 86' blazer ,93'3500, 96'3500, and a 99' 3500hd with 12 valve cummins power. the goats, 90'd250, 91'd350 4x4, all are diesel powered. a list of bigger stuff, as well as gasser's, got lucky, wife comes from a family that collects junk iron too!
