Hi my name is Aaron im in sw missouri and i have a 1982 Chevy LUV Mikado with the C223 diesel engine...rebuilt msg 5 gearbox from 95 pup. And yesterdays score....a 50 dollar core engine ! I gave the man a 100 and drove away with the engine stand to boot! Truck runs great now at 300k miles but im in for the long haul. Too much smoke from the ol drafty tube lol. Cant wait to open up the core and see what we have inside.

Welcome back, Aaron. I guess you joined before, but got "lost" when the server crashed, is that right?

Yes i believe that is what happened. It was around the same time. Is Jerry still around or dealing with parts.? I PMd him but havent heard back. Is there another way to get ahold of him? Email possibly. I need a few parts and i have another 81 c223 im about to embark upon rebuilding as well. Wandering what the best rebuild kit is what parts to trust and if there are better bearings rings or headgaskets i should use or stay away from as well. Ive read the itm gaskets are subject so i was thinking fel pro or mahle. I def need an oil line for my vacuum pump with copper washers. Possibly injector heat shields and a good rebuild kit. I also need the turn signal assemblys and side markers for my front bumper. They work as i rebuilt the sockects but are semi broken and flaky. Thank
