I cannot confirm right this minute but that is a 6.2 GM diesel. I can confirm is a few. as far as year it will be difficult as they were manufactured by detroit diesel and shipped to GM and AMG for years with very few changes.

Also the numbers you have atatched are not the block numbers which is what would be required to verify year if even possible.

I'll look for the other numbers. But this engine looks different than the other 87 6.2L I have. Those have a different type of label on them and say made by GM. This truck had MWO label on it but can't read the date.
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 10 months ago.

Is the other 6.2 an off road only certified diesel? The one in pics is.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
From the link that you sent me, I found these numbers on the back of the engine near the transmission.
What do you mean by off road only certified diesel? Where does that info come from?
The other one has a GM mark near the sticker and the sticker says GM and also 6.2L. This one has a different label and no GM marking.
