junkyard
 
Today I scored a DB2 4153 J-code IP for $27 from a '83 GMC crew cab dually. Given the clean nature of the fuel that poured out I'd say it's not dead yet. Got the J code split plenum manifold, both fuel filter housings,
water crossover, and glow plug relay. When I turned the crank over to get at the IP bolts I could feel the crunchiness of the bearings. Slip/stick/slip/stick.

Got 4 coarse thread long injectors, but the other 4 are not worth the effort of pulling the AC system. Unless anyone wants the AC brackets? The top bracket bolted to the intake manifold - one of the bolt ears broke of.

No starter or bracket, sadly.

How much total cash outlay ? It is still a little cold here for Saturday morning junkyard picnics....LOL. We do them here in the yard close to the wood stoves....(got a 94...ex-cab 6.2L in yard now...did a 2000 Grand Am last week).

BTW, did you think to pull valve covers to check for the cast rocker assemblies ?

$95 total. Yes it has cast rockers, one cover is pulled.

They are getting rare....many guys, us included, prefer running then as compared to the stamped rockers. They have minimal slap, as they are on a brass bushing, and no plastic retainer.

so, did you get those rockers yet?......LMFAOx2

Sounds like you got a hell of a nice score! I wish there were more diesels in the junkyards around me.
