That 1994 diesel supplement is awesome, I love it. However it doesnt cover diesel maintenance just troubleshooting. Which book covers stuff like IP replacement?

^^Haynes book has a lot of "general diesel" info. But it does narrow down to the 6.5 specifics for some areas.

The Diesel Page books are PACKED full of 6.5 info. my opinion, I should have bought them much sooner.

All of these books are well worth the money. Just make sure you read the whole book and take notes(page markers) for info to refer back to in times of need. That way you aren't searching thousands of pages to find one torque spec. you know?

I love how he is hooked on the 6.5 power and efficiency! They are great to work on.

The Haynes/Chilton book is not great, worthless compared to the GM diesel specific manuals of course.
