I have a chance to purchase a cab and chassis w/ a 6.2L diesel, SM465 and 3/4 ton axles (not sure on the t-case, truck is an '83) for $300. My 350 runs fine but I was thinking I might enjoy the diesel engine. I just did a complete tune up for the 350 so I have some money tied up in it, otherwise it's stock minus the new headers and dual exhaust (exhaust should bolt up to the diesel) The diesel seems to run fine and it's complete but it needs new glow plugs (only starts with starting fluid!!! ) I think, if nothing else, it would be nice to have the spare SM465, 14 bolt and the hydroboost brakes. I should be able to make $300 back by selling the engine and front end if I decide not to use them... right?
