Some info on the truck:
1993 Chevrolet K2500 HD Silverado Pickup

6.5L TD 200-hp engine (according to VC decal)

All Silverado options, except for sliding rear window

This truck has been relatively trouble-free since new considering how much it is driven. I've not had to do any major engine work to it yet. For the past year or so, I've had a lot of problems with the lift pumps and oil pressure units going out every four to six weeks. Right now I am on a "good set" of them, I guess. No trouble of late.
