    I went to a DRMO with a friend. There was a truck there with 20,000 on it real clean no rust at all. I put a 900 bid in thinking this is all I can afford now. Did not think it would happen because of the low miles and the good parts on it. Well, I won it! I was told I bid to much to. My blazer will be a 1 ton soon. Anyway, it is missing the front from the radiator up. The wiring was real cut up i needd to know how I can test the 6.2 before i sell it to fund the project Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    If you're just trying to test the motor you should be able to send power (12V) to the fuel solenoid and HPCA (mounted on the pump). Power up the glow plug solenoid (12V signal/24V controlled) for just 15 seconds. Then crank/jump the starter solenoid (24v).

    It doesn't take too much to run a diesel. The radiator or lack thereof should be a problem for a few minutes.

    Other wise a compression test can reveal alot. There are special units that screw into the glow plug socket, and read the higher pressures.
