I have a 1998 6500 GMC Flatbed dump. It has 330K miles on it but Cat did an in-frame rebuild 45K miles ago on the 3126B CAT engine. It was recently leaking oil through the front of the engine (timing chain cover). Apparently ran low on oil a couple of times and # 5 lobe on the camshaft is worn off. I'm trying to determine if it's worth repairing. The truck itself is in good shape except for the clutch. It has been adjusted as far as possible and needs a new clutch. I've looked at reman engines and used engines. Remans are high, used engines, I'm afraid of.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

'We've sold 7 engines in 4 months through DieselEngineTrader.com - one to Utah, three to South Dakota, one to New York, one to Kansas and one locally in Wisconsin! I also advertise in other publications but DieselEngineTrader.com gets the best results and at a great price too! I like the way that my engines are shown at the top of Google searches and DieselEngineTrader.com will definitely be playing a major part in my advertising from now on.'

'We were looking for a 6SDIT Isuzu diesel but quotes from regular suppliers were too high. Searched Diesel Engine Trader and found a match immediately. As a result, we listed our engines for sale and got our first responses within weeks.'
