I have a 6.5 TD in my 98' Hummer.
If you want to talk to the guru of 6.5 TD's it is Dennis Sweeny at UORV and GEPP. He was the head mechanic at Team Hummer Racing and left when they went over to the Duramax. He left on good terms and only so he could take is experience with the 6.5 and start his own business dealing with Hummers and supped up 6.5 TD's for the military. If you want a bulitproof 6.5 performer talk to this guy.

I just got one...
in a 96' 3/4 ton burban.

Plan on it being a weekends, bad weather, a little in state towing machine. 130k on the odometer solid body, starts and goes with one little puff of rich then perfect running. Remote start should be nice, to use.

Add in a dvd player for the kids and we got our weekend to the cabin machine, replaces a pretty used up minivan that I never got better than 19mpg out of anyhow, this thing will be much cooler to drive.

Will have it in to my local/trusty guy for a full fluid update, check out, let me know what I should be looking at any weekend projects it may need done before winter hits.

seems that The Diesel Page - for the 6.2L, 6.5L, and Duramax 6600 (6.6L) GM Chevrolet and GMC diesel engines. has all the info on them.

E-bay seems to be the place for the shop manuals, these engines were used in the Hummer's, looks like the complete tear down and rebuild manuals for the field.

Here's mine! I love it. Great fuel econ. Last I checked I was getting like 22mpg highway. I am currently saving for a duramax but I must admit this truck has been a really reliable truck. Only thing is I have had to throw a few PMD's at it. haha.

I have a 6.5 TD in a 97 2 door tahoe 4x4. I used it to travel from job site to job site until I bought a duramax LB7 crew cab in 2002. I drove the 02 til last month when I picked up my 08 LMM crew cab. I still own all of them and I still love the way the 2 door tahoe 6.5 TD drives and handles. She has 310,000 miles on her and I just had the original 4L80E transmission and the transfer case rebuilt two months ago. I have never had any major problems with it and I look forward to driving her for years to come.

08 CCSB, Z71 Dark Cherry
