    I'm in the Springs & I need to swap out a blown 6.2 L diesel for another one. I should be picking up the other diesel next weekend. I would gladly help with this, but I don't have the means/knowledge to do this swap myself. The only part that needs to be moved (besides the assessories) in the injector pump. I also plan on replacing the GP's and injector return lines while its out.

    I would be willing to pay some $$, but it's been all I could do to come up with the $$ for the engine.

    TIA

    Same here. I would gladly stop over and hold the beer bottle though. I can help with the basics but I have never worked on a diesel before.

    I've got one guy form Co4x4 that will help. As long as I have a few others for some muscle, I think we can get it finished on Sat. I'm going tomorrow to pay for the engine and Ill pick it up Fri. I'm gonna try to get the rad drained/pulled and start to get some of the other stuff out of the way.

    Man that's tough. Too bad you can't fly Rene down.


    I paid someone to do all that when I had a 6.2L.

    Adam, Kevin, Nick, etc,


    My neighbor (City diesel mechanic) is gonna do the swap for me. $500 to swap engines, replace GPs, and swap the injector pumps. Worth it too me. Especially since he's giving me a month to get him paid off.

    Thank for the offers to help. Once the motor is swapped, then it's time to swap the tranny/doubler setup, 1-tons, lift, etc. So, I'll be needing lotsa help in the near future if I'm gonna be ready to go before summer.
