nope-i mean a 6.5 that is a little newer-maybe mid-80's up until late 90's or 

for my cummins they are around 2500 with an attached turbo 400
hard to find. i have a second one still in ohio that needs to be sold.

Do you mean the old 6.2L diesel? They started in '81 or '82 and I had one new 
in an '83 C20 pickup. The front coil springs were a lot heavier than the ones 
furnished with a 350V8. These were plentiful in Suburbans.

What will you have to pay for the Cummins? Used? Where?
