That's a 6.2 truck? Need more input. Does it not run?

Re: New project

Finding a 6.2 should be easy. There are plenty of military CUCV trucks being parted out all over the country, and they all have J code 6.2's. Nice score! I love a diesel blazer!

Re: New project

Sorry about the misunderstanding guys.sadly both trucks are gas and both run and drive but the jimmy has some tranny issue no reverse and the PO did a tbi to carb conversion using a quadrajet intake and Holley carb and it has some bad starting issue floods when hot and surges bad when its cold that's why I'm trying to find 6.2 to swap in plus I want a 6.2 truck.

Re: New project

Nice. Looks like it's been neglected for a little while. Good thing you got it when you did. No stone for a stepper though. Good as new in no time!
