6.2 Liter direct swap

As some of you might have seen in the showroom section, I purchased a 84 6.2 silverado. The 6.2 is a v8-diesel motor. I got the truck started after 3 days, then came to find out that the engine had a cracked block. I stitched the crack and sure enough there were 3 other cracks. I am assuming it was ran hot... Thanks to someone who helped me previously by providing a site, car-part.com, I was able to purchase a freshly rebuilt 91 6.2 out of a gm. It arrived yesterday and this morning I had it prepped to go in. My 3 ton cherry picker showed up tonight. So tomorrow I begin my venture. The plans for tomorrow are to unbolt the transmission, pull the engine, switch the pulleys and flywheel/torque converter to the new engine. If all goes, I may venture dropping the motor back tomorrow also, and finish the wiring, oil hook ups, etc the next day.

This is my first time dealing with a diesel motor, but the concept of swapping the motor is the same, except you HAVE to have both batteries fully charged, because the motor has to be cranked several times to prime the injection pump...

Oh yea on a last note, since this is a NA diesel, I am thinking about pulling the injector pump and advancing the timing. If I don't do it now I will do it once its in the truck. Wish me luck, heres some starter pics!

I'm getting my butt kicked lmao. My hands are pitch black. After 4 hours and a couple of homemade tools I got the 6 bolts from the transmission and block, and getting ready to go back out and work on getting the flywheel from the torque converter. Works stopping at five and starting again at 6... I'm hoping to have this beast out within the next hours... More pics to come tho.

Well, I overshot my time I would like to get the engine pulled by 3 hours but its out.


Rebuilt 6.2, it wasn't properly shipped. Bent the pulley, thats why I have a jack under it.

My light, a porch light, with the wires stuck in an extension cord. lol



The buckets got a mix of water, oil, diesel, and the previous owners "bio-diesel crap".

As it sits until I come back around 6ish.

Well an update... I was going to put the motor in and just align it with the trans, but for some reason my lift decided to fall with my motor and hit my dad garage door lol. So, I got that worked out for the most part and will have to fix the jack tomorrow, but It should be running by tomorrow night.

I love a turned up diesel lol, I like to black the skies. haha. I thought about just slapping a cheap supercharger on this, since its just a work truck really.
