    ...and diesel to gas motor.

    I got an M1008, 5/4 ex-military truck coming soon and want to swap out all that stuff to make it like the civilian trucks.

    I have never messed with the 24 volt systems. What do I do here?

    I have done some diesel to gas conversions, but lets hear some more info from the TRUE diesel guys on this forum.

    Anybody need parts from a 6.2L that I'm taking out of this truck? It don't run as far as I know. I will post info about the motor when the truck gets here.

    Search for Roscoe Common Equipment they have very detailed instructions for 3 different converstions. It's what I used.

    They call me Dirty Dave because thats the way I fight. At my age I cant afford to fight fair

    It's just mud how deep can it be?

    Don't tell K30 'nothin. He's a GAS burnin' SPY!, infilterating the sanctity of the Diesel Forum. Stay away from him brothers, he speaks ill of our beloved motor. Irreverant of our compression combustion ways, he seeks only convert the weak and defile virgin iron with his swappin' vises.

    BEWARE BROTHERS, BEWARE!

    Real trucks don't have spark plugs!

    Man, Dan, you crack me up!! [​IMG]

    I don't have anything against the 6.2 or any diesel motor. Matter of fact, I would love to have an M1008 with a RUNNING 6.2 to use as a tow and work truck.
    This truck I'm getting is going to be only a play truck, nothing else. So, you kind of understand the need for the horsepower and torque here. [​IMG]

    Now if I was to keep a 6.2, I would employ that motor to do my "dirty" work. I know the diesels are good motors, too. I like them for the torque and the mileage.

    But for this truck I'm getting, I need the gas motor for my requirements. Just my past experience and what I "need" to fulfill the need for power. [​IMG]

    Don't dispare, I will eventually find me a good running 6.2 K30 someday and join this forum to chat with you guys. [​IMG] [​IMG]
