5.7L Olds Diesel

Has anyone owed or still own a 5.7L Olds diesel pickup?
My dad did but the timing set went in it. It sat for 12 years then my uncle bought it and tried to convert it to a gas. He drove it for a short while, then the motor burned up.

Yup that seems to happen to them when they swap them back to a Gasser !

They 23 to 25 mpg in the oldsmobile cars n not much get up n go to them either...
But powerful Gassers n weak diesels seem to have been GMs trend . . .

Don't for get the toroflow diesels...

have you seen any trucks around with the diesel option. I've looked and can't seem to find any around.

They were around in the late '70s. They had some issues. I posted the common issues a while back. A quick search can net you plenty of info since so many people complain about them.

So did your Uncle hand it over to you? It could be a worth while project. You would possibly be less out of pocket to grab a running, used 6.2.

I was hoping someone had a new project. It might motivate me to get going on one of mine.

If I truly wanted to get a 6.2, I could buy another uncles '85 truck. I'd have to get it running first.
