New to me 92 with the 6.5

I recently picked up a 92 3/4 ton 4x4 with the 6.5 Diesel. It only has 144k on it and is in pretty darned good shape for a Michigan truck. I've had to fix numerous little issues, but most have been fixed now with mostly time and a few bucks. The thing drives very well. I am planning to keep it 100% bone stock and will do my best to keep it clean and try to get many years use out of it. I'm a happy camper.

Welcome. Good luck with the old girl. So you've done all the usual fixes? PMD relocated, etc?

Uh...I'm so new with the 6.5 that I don't even know where the PMD is located

Ok...I think I just figured out the PMD. My truck is a 92 with the mechanical injection pump. So, unless I'm missing something, this truck shouldn't have a PMD.

Well, just thought I'd update on my 92. When I bought it the OD was working intermittently. I wasn't all that concerned at the time. Then it quit working all together. So...after a new computer and throttle position sensor, all is back to normal. My wallet it just a little lighter. But I do like this truck for my beater. It's going to serve me well.

Finally had the chance to take this new to me truck on a little longer drive this weekend. I now really like this old girl. Having the OD working correctly as well as the torque converter locking up when it's supposed to, I'm having a little trouble keeping her under 60. This truck is going to serve me well.
