Perkins 6-354 Diesel Motors for Sale

We sell more than car and truck diesel engines than anyone. We tend to forget that some diesel motors are used in farm equipment, agriculture, marine and boat applications. The Perkins 6.354 diesel motors for sale are primarily used for the above purposes. This is not an over the road motor.

The engine I’m speaking of is rather heavy and not particularly powerful for a six cylinder diesel motor with 354 cubic inches of capacity. The most important thing about this motor is it can idle all day or operate at slow speeds while operating heavy equipment or trolling in a boat for hours and days on end with little or no variation in performance.

It is an excellent marine engine. It is not used for over the road usage in trucks. Since the 6.354 is an older motor, most of our customers who are looking for older diesel motors think in terms of remanufactured. What is more important, who needs an engine failure in a boat at sea? Engine failures stink in general, but when the motor is located in a remote area, the issues of delivering it increases.

A fully remanufactured motor is the only way to buy a fresh motor with all of the bolt on components remanufactured too. As in the fuel injectors, ignition system, and all of the related parts that operate with the motor. Remanufactured motors are the fastest way to go if you are in a rush and looking for ultimate reliability.

Don’t waste your money on inferior replacement engines. Every engine we sell has pure value remanufactured into it. A top notch remanufactured Perkins diesel motor is much more cost effective than the alternative.

Call GotEngines.com/motors, we are not just another diesel engine trader. We don’t sell just anyone’s discarded engines. Every motor we sell offers peace of mind and confidence to our customers. After all, that is why you are here. You want the best Perkins diesel engines remanufactured with factory new parts. Call now, some of our motors ship for free.

Fleet managers, or who ever is in charge of engine maintenance and engine replacement issues have to have that peace of mind vibe going before they trust just any old engine replacement company. There is enough stress involved already just getting to the hospital, let alone dealing with performance issues.

Most of the fleet owners or managers of Ambulance services buy remanufactured engines. A remanufactured engine is simply the best and most reliable way to replace a broken engine. Essentially, one of our specially prepared ambulance engines can be bolted right in [by a professional] and filled with synthetic engine oil, and be on the way.

Less downtime is one of the demands Ambulance repair facilities require. They want to know you have their diesel motor in stock ready to ship or deliver to them ASAP.

6.5 Turbo Diesel Motors for Sale

When we get a phone call inquiring on truck 6.5L turbo diesel motors for sale, in most cases it is for a Detroit Diesel V8 motor, designed and used by General Motors. The 6.5L diesel engine was introduced in 1992, with the majority of them equipped with turbo chargers. It preceded the 6.2L diesel and was replaced by the Duramax lineup in 2001.

Diesel motors were optional in all 1982 through 2000 Chevrolet and GMC C/K series pickup trucks, Suburbans, Blazer/Jimmy, Tahoe/Yukon, vans, and motor homes. The engine was standard on AM General HMMWV, Hummer H1 and Commercial Utility Cargo Vehicle vehicles.

With six separate variations of the 6.5L diesel motors available, lets cover them briefly.

1. The L49 [VIN “P”] and L57 are very similar and are naturally aspirated engines, meaning they do not have a turbo.
2. L56 {VIN “S”] is turbocharged and was used in the 1/2 ton or 1500 trucks and light duty 2500 or 3/4 ton trucks.
3. L65 was turbocharged version with no EGR [exhaust gas recirculation] valve or catalytic converter.
4. The LQM and LQN are both used in the heavy duty pickup trucks.

By the time the 6.2L became the 6.5L engine, the issues with main bearing web cracks and crank shaft breakage have been solved by redesigning the fly wheel assembly balancer weight and designing an update kit which improves the structural integrity and overall strength of the block, thus eliminating said problems.

With the above information in mind, the most requested replacement 6.5L diesel motors we sell are the remanufatured versions. Since the 6.5L motor went out of production after 2000, most of the good used motors have been found and sold. Don’t misunderstand me, we can locate a good used 6.5L diesel engine if you choose.

The beauty of a remanufactured motor is it’s fresh, everything is new inside it, and all of the most effective upgrades have been incorporated into the remanufacturing job. Some of our customers tell us we build the value right into the engine. Sounds good to us.

GotEngines.com/motors is fully prepared to satisfy your need for any of the above mentioned variants of the GM 6.5L turbo diesel engine for sale. Call one of our representatives and find out how cost effective this solution is. Some of our motors ship for free, so don’t wait, call now.
