new with a 1982 6.2

looked at the 6.2 for a while. got one for a little more torque than what i had. also i read these get decent fuel milage.

little preface:
got a dodge 2500 12v rolling chassis. i like to snow wheel and the cab and chassis was free . along with a bud gave me a 6.2 he couldnt make run. so now i and looking to. go over the 6.2 in put it in the ram chassis
.

i belive from what i read the fuel solinoids are not powering up. the gent who owned it. said for a while it woud fire and die. an when it woud run was a bit lacking on any snort.
plan to figure that out. and later if its healthy enough. feed it some boost. since parts are cheap .

building a snow wheeling truck. its on 40s 3inch lift. 60f/e303 axles. sm465 4 speed , 203 - to a 202 divorced.

i think what id like to do. is dump the factory harnes and manualy operate the glow plug's . manualy operate the fuel solinoids.

anyway back to digging thru post

You will probably be the first person in history to swap a GM diesel into a dodge instead of the other way around lol

Just 1 fuel SOS in top the ip. Pink wire. When powering the solenoid you need to hear it click. Running issue is probably a fuel delivery issues to the ip. Need a lift pump in line to feed the ip. ip will suck fuel but will lack power if no lift pump is working causing sputtering and dying. Other restrictions can factor including plugged filters tank strainer (sock) etc. Well to DP! You came to the right place.

Thought I'd never see such a post...

Like JC said but also make sure you can make the glow plugs work, even if it's 80 degrees a 6.2 isn't starting cold without some glows.

Almost all of us can, but we usually have a block heater and use better oils for cold like 5 w4o or 0 w40

If it will be on a stand and you have cranking ability (two batteries and maybe a booster) you might want to run a compression test on the motor if you have the tool. Easy to do. Just my opinion and something to ponder befor you get too far. Im sure youve read up on the front starter brace and inspection of the harmonic balancer. Maybe check the webs for cracks if you regasket. Spam assassin is right we can start these trucks when cold out. Dont believe the hype, Long as you have a good set of batteries, good glow plugs with manual control and a block heater you'll start the motor even in sub zero temps just having it plugged in a few hours.

I have only used 1 battery to fire up on the ground but it has been a lot warmer than 20 degrees.
I would hookup 2 batteries.
And no matter how tempting it is don't use ether....

Also might help to pull the glows and crank the motor over until you see fuel misting out of the glow plug holes.
After you make sure the injection is getting 12 volts and you hear the fuel shutoff clicking.
It may take a while to get the air out so don't expect it to pop off right away, might have to let the batteries charge backup.

on a over nite i may not have a block heater. unless i put a small gen on this rig to heat that block. if it comes down to keeping it warm on a gen. how many hours would it need on a overnite before it will start up? i usually shut down for 12 hrs at a time. genraly run the snow. so those hours may be day or nite much like this :
