But when I switch back 300 hp seems a lot more like 500. Even my V8 Exploder is a veritable rocket ship.

And to stay on topic 1982 GMC 2500 PICKUP 6.2L DIESEL

If it was 4wd I would be thinking about contacting now.
Another in nice shape. Too bad no engine shots to verify if a red original block. Normally I'd say the price should be cut in half for spraying ether in it, but its so low now, it doesn't have much further to drop.

Descrition says ETHER IN THE AIR FILTER. Is that the same as starter fluid in the intake?

This is just down the road from me and is clean as hell. Says new trans but the truck won't run. REALLY tempted to go down and either help him out or buy the damn thing.

Gotta be something simple being a DB2 truck.

Old vehicles come across fairly easy, just 5% tax and then they need an inspection for registration. Anything modified is an issue, like lifts.
Plenty of Canadians with money, I've known plenty who have gone to the states for vehicles. I was pretty sure that the instrument panel need to be changed form miles to Kms if the truck was newer than '81 or whenever the metric system came

Wow that is clean, at that price and given the great shape it's in I would consider converting it to 4wd.

If it was any where near me it'd be putting the cash in the guys hand and driving it home.,
