Re: Deutz Diesel Engines?
[ QUOTE ]
I think Ford had an air cooled Deutz in the 70's and 80's. I didn't know GM had one as well. Too bad they hadn't stuck with it instead of the worthless 6.2L of the 80's with the two bolt main.

[/ QUOTE ] wrong! the 6.2 engines had 4 bolt mains.collection piece? yea i guess your correct,i have owned 6, 6.2 powered vehicles,still got 4 of them.mileage any where from 120k to 379k.out of those 6 trucks i have had to open the engine up on one of them to replace a head gasket,considering the life style they live,thats a good track record. back on the deutz topic,most are very good engines. gm did offer a duetz option in its medium duty line back in the early 80,s . it was a good engine,but didnt sell well.
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!
