    Make sure cold start circuit is working properly is about the only thing on ip to look at for this. That and timing.

    Clear return and supply line test. Watching for bubbles and fuel flow. And starting better warm/ hot is sign of weak glowplug / compression side of things- not worn out ip. Pull plugs and bench test. Do compression check & leak down test while out.

    Easier or harder to star when hot?

    P0355 and other troubles

    welcome. all the above is right, but the test mentioned in post 3, and described in post 7 is the fastest and easiest.

    If there is a db shop you trust, have them test the pump before rebuilding. I agree on glowplug first also- only AC Delco 60G because the bosch are having a lot of failures now. If you haven't done one in a while, compression test is always good to know. How fast is your crank speed?

    94 GMC Yukon 6.5L diesel, looking for advice/info on rebuilds, etc.

    Yes, for the "zing" imagine no sparkplug in one cylinder when starting a 350- loss of compression in one (or more) cylinders. Diesel uses a higher gauge than gas for compression test, and don't do a "wet" test as the oil can become a fuel and ignite into the gauge. Normal recommendation is do...

    Starting Over 93 C3500 18:1

    Yes, I will get you the info this weekend. I cheated and had another block to measure off of. In the end I wish I had NOT done it. adding a drain into the pan and hose from the other ports would have done just fine. and now that I want to get rid of the center mount gm6 with its 3 piece...

    Looking for a new block? Here is a Warning

    Yes, that is correct. the seal is a 1 piece rubber oring. the bottom of the turbo that mounts there is surfaced flat. so just the oring seals the pressure side apart from the drain side all the time. The bearing seal was not needed.

    Starting Over 93 C3500 18:1

    Removing that ball is going to be a challenge. I was thinking the smallest brazing tip/ pencil torch and heat it up to remove the temper, that might just braze it into place however. Maybe a tiny diegrinder tip or sanding stone and take the time to make a jig to hold it perfectly still that...

    Looking for a new block? Here is a Warning

    Imo, You should also post pic of how they “sealed” the oil supply to the center mount turbo here for people to see.

    Starting Over 93 C3500 18:1

    Never seen the ball bearing to plug the oil hole. Stupid idea imo. They are not threaded factory, just a drilled hole. Could have been threaded and plugged. And there is still the larger drain hole to deal with. The figure 8 oring and a plate of steel over the top could seal it, but again...

    If you haven’t already bought your 12volt starter & alternator - I would strongly suggest powermaster. There simply is no better starter for the 6.2/6.5 than the powermaster 9052. Make sure you have a front bracket on there regardless of which starter you choose, many blocks have been ruined...

    Welcome Cecil. Many of us know the rig and drivetrain pretty good here. Hopefully someone has the manual /schematics you’re lookin for.

    94 GMC Yukon 6.5L diesel, looking for advice/info on rebuilds, etc.

    Better to smell diesel than coolant. So hopefully no major damage then. So that you are aware for the future: Head gasket go on these just like a 350. Heads crack easier between the valves which is a coolant loss when engine off and compression into coolant when running scenario. It is...

    Runaway shut off valve (positive air flow valve)

    Exactly along the lines I was thinking. But after having delt with accidental engine shut off on the old two stroke diesels, the catch systems wear and can cause an accidental activation causing engine to die. This could be a bad situation so I simply want a pull cable. Complete driver...

    There is more valuable information in the stickies of this forum than in any manual you will ever find. I suggest copy and translate it. It will be well worth the effort.

    Runaway shut off valve (positive air flow valve)

    @MrMarty51 be a bit before ready, but I will keep that in mind. I’ll admit to being the paranoid type because I’ve seen a 6.5 and a cummins in person. 6.5 doesn’t go crazy exterior damage, just turns into a boat anchor. This was all in my future to do list after my engine is built. One of...
