Question 1980 diesel Step Side?

Hello my name is Vincent.
I am new to your web site and really new to posting on a form. I have been a square body fan for years and own two of them now. the project that is first in line is a 1980 Chevy step side 2wd. I have decoded the VIN and found out this truck was a 5.3 diesel step side. I have never seen or heard of a 5 lug 1/2 ton step side before. Has anyone heard of or owned a diesel step side?[SIZE="2"]

Welcome, welcome welcome! I can’t help you much with your question as I don’t dabble in the squares much but there is section of the site devoted strictly to the 73-87 trucks. The guys over there really know those trucks well and I’m confident they can help you out.
This might help.

likely one of the 1/2 tons that were available with a 5.7 Oldsmobile diesel. It's amazing if it still has the olds engine in running condition.

That’s no joke those 5.7 diesels were terrible.

Re: 1980 diesel Step Side?

Does anyone know what year or model square body 3/4 ton four wheel drive had the factory tac in it?
What option code should I be looking for to find a factory tac?
I would like to put the factory tac in this step side.
I did it in my 76 blazer and it looked and worked well.
Dammed if i can remember the year of the wrecked 3/4 ton Chevy I found.
It had the factory tac in it with the small fuel gauge.
thanks again for the reply's they are very helpful.
