94.5 PSD dead cylinder
Hey guys, 1st post here, looks like a great site!! I have a 94.5 PSD with 220K miles that has no compression in one hole so Im thinking that it might either be a burnt valve or a hole in the piston. I have it at a shop now and they are gonna pull the glowplug out and stick their lil camera in there to see what it might be. Either way what am I looking at on cost for this? I have found a couple complete trucks with around 180K miles with good drive trains for around $1000. Would it be worth swapping the engine out for one that runs properly, or doing the work myself. This truck also needs a turbo as it is leaking oil out where the downpipe joins the turbo.
Im sure this has been beaten to death here, but I also considered doin an old 12 valve cummins swap. I found one with 140K miles for $1800. How hard would this be?
Thanks in advance for any informative advice!
