I see you're a certified diesel tech, but I'm wondering what you would do to ensure the motor is good.

Kind of sounds like a good project, but the special tools for block work kind of scare me, at least pricewise, for something I think I'd use once. I do have the 2005 workshop manual and it gives all the specs, so I think I'd be able to do it, but I think for me getting one from Asheville would be cheaper. Could be different if there was a history on the junker, perhaps its a light wreck that bent the frame and left the engine in good condition. It it'd actually start in the truck before pulling, that's a bonus. I have the tools I need to do the oil cooler, EGR, fuel injectors, and other rather common repairs, but no stand or lift, so I kind of see myself spending thousands for this once in a life time project. There's a lot of pricey tools like the rear main seal tool that would add up.

I have a 42k mile complete drivetrain. If anyone is serious I'd sell the complete engine for the price of an Asheville longblock.

My first check for a junk yard engine is I check to see if it even turns over by hand with a breaker bar.

Other than that. I'm going into this one with full intentions to tear it to bare block and have it machined.

A long time ago I bought a 6.0 service tool kit from Amazon and that had a lot of the tools needed for top end service. I also have a few of my micrometers and dial indicators that I had when rebuild the big engines that will work for this.

If you plan on just pulling a junkyard engine and throwing it in your truck. Then on the trip the junkyard I would bring a compression tester, and a battery and cables to be able to jump the starter if the engine even has one on it.

Not the picture you want to receive from your son when you know he was the operator. He's OK, but that had to be a wild ride. They are demoing a jail that had major damage from a gas explosion and later flooding. The rubble shifted into a part of the basement area that they didn't even know was there and he rode it down about 20 feet or more. Thank you Lord for protecting him today.
@backhoebill you probably have some of these stories too.
