Did the '80s 1/2-ton trucks come with Hydroboost brakes, or was there something else done for brake boost? I may have a line on a mid-80s 1/2-ton diesel pickup w/auto for a good price (GET IT OUT OF MY YARD AND IT'S YOURS!) and I'm thinking it'll be a great donor for a 6.2 swap into my K5. It's allegedly got a broken rear (I suspect Gov-Bomb but don't know yet...) and is cosmetically dead. Some questions: -What should I be looking for on the engine to ensure I'm not setting myself up for massive, painful failure? Stuff like common leak locations, shady repairs, missing accessories, that sort of stuff. Oh, and what's the deal with the glowplugs? -Which axle gear should I go with? I have a line on an 8-lug D44 and 14FF that I intend to install; one is 4.11 and one is 4.56. The combo (if the 6.2 is good) will be 6.2 / 700R4 / 208 or 241, and tire size will be 35 or 36". 37's could be in the future, but only after the 35's are dead... There will be some highway driving to get to the fun stuff, and maybe some light towing (3-4K), but it probably won't be a DD. - Anyone know Pennsylvania's laws regarding engine swaps? Or know where I can find them online? Or who to call and ask? I've Googled this, but haven't found much. Plus I searched the PA DMV site but that didn't yield anything either. If anyone thinks of other stuff I missed, please post it up here.
