    It may take a little longer, but you have a much more focused target audience in the diesel forum. I could understand if you weren't a paid member, but seeing as you have the membership I'd be happier seeing you post diesel questions in the correct forum.

    New non members with diesel questions I try and help, hoping that they will see the value here and join up...then begin posting in the diesel forum.

    my lincoln tech heavy truck manual only lists the 6.2L for chevy/gm from 77-87 models.

    the isusu motors are as follows
    4BD1-T 235.2 ci per cyl
    6BD1-T 353 ci per cyl
    6SA1-T 513.0 ci per cyl

    hope this helps some. others will know better.

    A box truck motor???

    I've seen 6 cylinder inline Isuzu motors in those "box" trucks with the huge windsheild and a "cab over" design shoehorned into a 1974 GMC 3500 2wd dually for use as a mobile home hauler...they used the Isuzu 5 speed tranny too..it all fit in with a minimum of hassles,and gave 16-20 mpg on towing runs to IN from MA where the guys trailer dealership was--sorry,I dont know what size cubic inch it was,or any specs..only Isuzu 4 cyl. diesel I have seen were in chevettes,and Isuzu "PUP" pickups... :crazy:

    i cannot for the life of me remember when i am not busy at work to check the 4500 gmc they have. i have to lift the cab and see if there is an info tag. but the trick is getting time when the truck is in lol i get quite busy. and the truck is gone a lot. go figure eh?

    but anyway... i just thought they were 4 cyls. :dunno: and the truck at work is an auto.
