    Don\'t know why, but I bought another truck today.....

    Just bought a 92 Chevy Crew Cab One Ton Dually 4X4 with a 6.5 Turbo and 5 speed. It is cherry except the POS engine has a knock. I think I am going to go with a gas engine. The deal was right so I couldn't refuse.....

    You can get a complete long block from Diesel Depot for about $2000. They know the short comings of the GM diesel and provide solutions. It is hard to beat the advantages of a diesel engine, i would hate to see you drop in a gasser.

    Actually if I keep it I will more than likely put a Cummins in it.. I have one in my 99 Dodge Dually and love it. I have a line on a rolled over 94 Dodge with the 12 valve Cummins with just over 124,000 miles on it I am trying to get.

    I hear the 12v is the easiest, if you have a line of one i say go for it, the cummins is a great motor.

    I bought back my rolled '98 12v with 150K for $2000. Just a little FYI for insurance prices.

    Exactly how does the knock sound? Does it sound like a gasser motor knock?
