    I am in a bind but I think the best option is to buy a new engine for the 92 k2500 I have un my shop right now. The engine that was in thew truck, the crank broke right after #4 main web and made a HELL of a noise. What I would like to know is where to get the best price on a new AM general engine or GM 6.5L (probally the same thing now). Anyway we'll see what you guys come up with. Thanks, Klink :cool1:

    I would ask on TheDieselPage.com - I don't think most guys over here buy new diesel engines. I would consider rebuilts from http://www.peninsulardiesel.com/, or The Diesel Depot, 219 Waco Dr. / P.O. Box 228. Sandersville, GA 31082 800-553-8192

    Mark,
    How goes it?

    Local standadyne rebuild shop can get reman 6.5s. They come with new AM blocks and refurbished internals. Available in short block all the way to fully dressed. I can get the number so you can post it if you'd like.

    Sometime I might renew my membership so I can post. But I need to renew it on the TDR first, just bought a motorhome with 5.9CTD/allision.

    Regards, Dan
