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:grin2:

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.

I had one with the 5 speed manual.
Really miss that truck.
Add a diy boost master and you'll get great mpg.

So, how ya makin' out, so far? Any new "issues"? I made a few changes to mine to boost power and fuel economy, but, am now having the heads replaced. I guess power mods on an engine with 302,k+ aren't really a great idea. We will see what happens with the new heads. I really like my '95, and am going to treat it as if it were my '57 chevy, in that, I will restore it a little at a time and not worry so much about the cost/value ratio. The bodies and frames on these mid- 90's trucks are stronger than anything out these days, and I have a long way to go before I will have spent as much as an '07 would cost me.

So far, the ole 92 is doing well. I've only put around 1000 miles on it this winter, mostly short 10, 15, & 20 mile runs. Overall I'm very pleased. Here in the next few weeks I'll even have a chance to hook her onto my gooseneck. The trailer weighs 9k empty, so it will be interesting to see how she pulls. I'll only be hauling 8-9 miles, so no hurry or worry.

Thought I'd give an update on the Ole 92. She is doing well and I'm very pleased. Finally had a chance to put a load on her....I scaled 17,500 truck/goose combo at the scrap yard. It handled the load very well. I'll try to upload an updated pic with the PYO's on her.
