    I was told it was a roller. I go pick it up and it has a 6.2 400/208 still in it! Of all the luck. I will need drive shafts for it. what I need to know is the top end of the 6.2 was open and no hood. So water is in it. I could not turn the crank. So do I just tear it down and see what I got or should I just pull it? Thanks for the help again! Mike

    Sorry man, if it has sat like that for very long the motor is finished. Diesels are very sensitive to compression. The water would rust the walls in a couple days only. Then when you attempt to start it, it will grind off the rust possibly breaking the rings. At a mininum grinding the rust off will score the cylinder walls and rings.

    If you do attempt to start the engine MAKE SURE 100% of the water is out, otherwise you will hydro-lock the motor. This can bend/break many parts.

    If I were you I would just yank it out and take it appart and keep the usable parts but go and get a new short block and put it in.
    You would still have a truck for under 3k with a new engine.

    If it were me, with as little money as you've got in it, I'd try putting a cummins or perkins in it. Pricey, yes, but most of us have $2000-$3500 in our rigs already, so another $8000 seems too steep, but you might could get away with it /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
