Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeA 350 cubic inch V8 diesel that made 135 horsepower. It never had a reputation to ruin.

The last year or two of 350 Olds production had the problems fixed . By that time however their reputation was ruined .

Neither are designed by Isuzu but some (all?) are produced in Moraine, OH by a GM/Isuzu joint venture.

Couldn't resist: "GM has never been known for good diesels." I guess that's why there are still so many 71 series Detroit's around after approximately 90 years.

So I guess I should run down to the dealership and buy a gm diesel because they made big rig engines 40 years ago. You can say what you want, but those motors are not the same as the ones in the pickups. We are talking pickups here. I guess I should've realized everybody would get the old hair splitter out.

Good grief! Do you guys stay up all night trying to split hairs? Last time I checked this entire conversation is about PICKUP TRUCKS.I figured that is kind of obvious, but if not. I am talking about PICKUP TRUCKS, everybody was originally talking about PICKUP TRUCKS, we were all talking about PICKUP TRUCKS! My other posts mentioned either PICKUP TRUCKS, or LIGHT DUTY DIESELS. Did I mention PICKUP TRUCKS?

This is a heavy truck diesel, GM Topkick 7500 and 8500 used them. Nothing in common with the 6.6 V8 in the pickups.

Think 8LL was top transmission you could get in one.

Duramax is an Isuzu. I do not currently own a Duramax. I had a 2003 C5500 with one. I sold it when the head gasket began leaking coolant to the ground, I think that problem has been resolved on the new engines. Don't remember the miles, over 150xxx i think. Everyone that I know that has one loves them. I do have 5 Isuzu 5.2 4 cylinder diesels. They are great as long as ALL of the Exhaust Aftertreatment works as required. When it does not.... It can be VVEERRYY frustrating.

I think direct injection gas will make Diesels obsolete in all but heavy applications. They are actually trying out combustion ignition gassers now, and getting away from the Otto cycle.

Combustion ignition gas engine? Who is going to volunteer to sit in the seat and turn the key? Boom!

I don't have any experience with duramax diesels, but that is only because gm has never been known for good diesels.

And itís an Isuzu FYI. Better look at those ford 6.0 the trouble they had. There is duramaxís out There with close to a million km.

And? There are fords out there with over a million miles, but none of that has anything to do with this. And if my math is right, 430k KM is around 250k miles which isn't much for a diesel. I am fully aware of the 6.0, but you must not be aware of the 350,6.2,and 6.5 that were complete junk. There is a reason why you don't see them around. I don't know about the isuzu engines, but at least gm finally realized they don't know how to make diesels.

But remember a lot on the 350 olds. Never had 6.2 come in for engine replacement. I still have my 6.5 here also. Has 400,000km.

Do you think the 6.2 and 6.5 were great engines? Remember when both engines came out. Farmers in the area tried them out for s short time, then went back to gas engine powered trucks.
I know they work pretty good in half ton trucks if you don't work them to hard

It is now open season on diesels by the green weenies due to the change of government officials .
Some day people will look back on the good old days when engines only had to meet Tier IV emission regulations .
Tier V and Tier VI may require diesels to operate on the lighter kerosene fuel in order to meet future regulations . Small diesels may become so complex and so expensive that they will gradually disappear from the new market . Something that would the green weenies cheer with joy .

On July 4th 1998 my dad and I was sitting on the front porch when he said that he was going to sell his two 10-20's to a junk man. He said that the junk man was going to give him $500 for both of them but he hadn't received the money for them yet. So I went into the house and wrote him a check for $500 and bought them myself and said now they are mine. He had bought them about five years before thinking that he was going to restore them himself. After five years sitting in the barn, he changed h ... [Read Article]
