Truck engine problems West Coast Version. As you guys know I also have a truck with a Detroit 8.2L engine that is blowing exhaust gases into the cooling system. It also got water in the oil and leaked water onto the ground from inbetween the head and the block. Putting a block sealing stuff into the water temporarily solves the last two problems. This is a replacement motor for which I paid $4500 for about a year ago. It made it about 60 days past the warranty. It has been limping along for many months now and I finally made up my mind to convert it to a Caterpillar motor. Yesterday I picked up a 3208 motor that has 120 hours on it. It was an emergency fire pump motor for a local cannery. I now need a donor motor for the exhaust manifolds and various other parts to convert it from an industrial application to a vehicle motor. I put my request on Craigslist and am going to look at a motor on Sunday for 500 dollars which was in an F-7000. A friend of mine gave me another 8.2L motor but it has injector problems and it seems to have a lot of blow by. Here is a picture of the 3208 when I picked it up yesterday.
