I'm fairly new to deisels. I have an 83 GMC 6.2 liter. First, The solenoid for the glow plugs stays on almost constantly. Is there another relay besides the solenoid that could be bad, or is it just the solenoid itself that needs replacing. Second, I'm having a hard time keeping the belts tight. They either work their way loose, or they just stretch out. I've had the truck for 7 months and have replaced the belts twice. Is this common on the 6.2 liter engine?

' is a very good resource. I use it to search for engines I need and have also advertised a Volvo Penta engine and received some genuine enquiries. Our local market is small and helps me to reach a worldwide market.'

Dimitris Constantinou, Limassol, Cyprus

'I had hundreds of "hits" on your website which generated 5 or 6 inquiries from all over the world; Germany, The Philippines, Korea, Sweden, and Spain. I sold all 3 of my engines to a buyer from South Korea. Your website was invaluable to me in selling these engines; no other ads that I ran produced any inquiries.'

'Was looking for a Gardner 4LK to rebuild. None of my usual contacts could help me so I searched the Internet and found one on DieselEngineTrader. It was only 27 miles down the road!'
