GM Postpones 4.5L Diesel

This might be the end of the road for the 4.5L.

Dang it! We were looking for a new vehicle and I talked the wife into waiting. I guess they don't want to take anything away from their 2500/3500 trucks. Stupid GM.

GM actually put the 5.7 Olds diesel in the half tons from '79-81 and then used the new 6.2 in all trucks starting in the fall of '81 for the '82's.
