The older diesels were nothing more than a gas 350 with beefier big-ends on the crank & of course, different heads & intake. Worth as much as a bag of smashed a**holes........

The Duramax diesels are MINT! But VERY expensive. :shock:

Not even good for an anchor! Sad day when GM did this to us. Took Izuzu to make the duramax. Why can't they use an inline 6 and forget the complexity? Oh, wait someone did...................

if it runs good and has already been fixed it might be worth looking at. Most of the problems with the 95's have already been fixed with upgraded parts or the truck would be in the junkyard.

From my limited observation of the transportation and agriculture types of diesel engines,[I have owned a few] they all seem to fit into one of two categorys. #1 The I can't believe this has run so long and so strong with minimum failures, I love this thing and #2 I gotta get out from under this thing it is worse than a house payment to keep it moving! I hate this thing. Mike

Assuming it's a 6.5 Turbo Diesel it's not a bad motor provided it's been maintained. Injector pump and drivers are the weak spots on those motors, not cheap.

The problem comes when someone buys an older diesel and expects it to act like a newer Duramax or Powerstroke. Most of the older diesels will do very well when you ask them to do what they were made to do, not what you want them to do.

The 6.2/6.5 is NOT the 5.7 Olds Diesel from the early 80's - it's a purpose designed diesel engine. Last year for the 5.7 Olds Diesel was 1985 IIRC, and they finally had the bugs worked out but the reputation was already established. The 4.3 Olds V6 Diesel was a scarce but good motor since it started production with many of the upgrades that the 5.7 didn't get until later years.

The 5.7 Olds DX block makes a great starting point for a built 430+ cube SB Olds gas motor.

But I'll take a Duramax any day - 450+ hp and 825+ ft/lbs torque with just a keyboard, no greasy hands! :shock:
