On occasion I get an email or call wondering if I know of somebody close to them that can help them with setting time, changing injectors etc. this is a different post from member locator thread http://www.thetruckstop.us/forum/showthread.php?4714-6-5-member-locator

What I'm hoping for here is a place for folks to list their capabilities and tools available to possibly help another member out:

Thread is only to list help you can offer, do not ask for help in this thread, this is a resource availability thread only please. on 6.2/6.5 engined platforms.

I'll start out; I can assist with any 6.5 OBD-II issues, most OBD-I issues, have a factory set of manuals for 98 OBD-II and 94 OBD-I,
limited 6.2 been there info, some tech manual info from my 90 GM manual

MT-2500 bi-directional scanner, Injection tools

I'm near Lakeland, FL, have GMTDScan tech, have access to Alldata, a lift and $30,000+ in tools, can set timing and have learned quite a bit about these beasts. I'm a Network Engineer by day, computers don't scare me one bit.

One of my favorite things to do is help someone out.

I have a garage and every tool needed, except a scanner, to do any repairs. Torches, welders, air compressor, and 2 snap on tool boxes full of tools. I'm in northern Kentucky and will give you my number thru a PM or email if you need my assistance. I do not have a pop tester or any way to set timing but everything else is covered.

racer55 - In Ontario Canada, Port Perry/Oshawa area. I have available to help with diagnostics tools such as: Snap On MT2500 with cartirdges from 84-2008 for domestic, GMTD Scantech, Carcode scan tool with GM obdII diagnostic connector for 96-01. Many shop tools such as welders-arc/mig/torches,vertical press ect. Soon to be operational - vertical milling machine,metal lathe. A full selection of hand and air tools collected over 25 years-23+years in the trade. Other specialty tools too numerous to mention - best to ask in advance for anything out of the ordinary. I might even be able to offer some 6.5TD experience when applicable.Very little knowledge of anything with newer diesels though,but willing to learn. Please pm to set up an agreeable time as well as directions and an explanation of the problem. My policy is no equipment to be removed from my property period.

*update 10/2/2010*

kent moore 6.5td tool kit including: IP turning tool & wrenches(both stat styles accessible), Slack tube manometer, Fuel hydrometer, Compression tester, Fuel pressure/vacume gauge and connecting accessories, Glow plug connector remover, Turbo inlet cover, Flywheel/flexplate holder

I have 2 shops, both have good food and cold beer.

I have gmtdscan tech for OBD1, shop manual for a 93 Gmc, Kent Moore 6.5L tool set, just about every tool you could need, mig/tig welder, and torch. I've timed obd1 and db2 trucks, I have also replaced about every Bolton part on a 6.5 and have done head gaskets.

:newbie: from Waterbury, CT here. I have the following shop capabilities:

MIG welder (I usually use this for mild steel structural fab, exhaust systems)
AC/DC TIG welder (for stainless, aluminum, magnesium, other metals)
Cutting and brazing torches
DC plasma cutter
Bridgeport milling machine and associated tooling
Basic oscilloscope

I'm still learning specifics regarding the 6.5l - I'm on my first Chevy and I haven't yet gotten to drive it. I can still help with fab, welding and consuming surplus beer.:friday:

NW Kansas, and SC Idaho.

good tool assortment, torch, welder, etc.

allways have some spare filters in stock, a spare tire or to (or twenty if in KS :) ) have a almost complete 6.5L tool kit in KS. majority of the 6.5L parts are in KS.

we are usually only in ID for a few months out of the year, end of July through early Sept., and usually end of Oct. through end of Nov, so dont depend on us there. :) The Kansas place is usually occupied year round and is alot better equipped.

Update to my list of shop tools - added GMTD Scan Tech. Nice piece of software.
Also I have my lathe up and running now, but it's nothing fancy.

Got my truck on the road this past November and loving it :)
