Default '95 6.5l Td??

Going to look at a '95 Chevy crew cab dually with a 6.5L TD, mileage is 120k. Anything to look for in these motors? We've had two of them at work, and didn't have any problems with them. The ones we have are '93 and '94. One just put a rod through the block at 300k. Only issues we had besides trannys where injector pumps on both motors, and I believe we changed the glow plugs on one or both.

Anyway the truck I'm going to look at is a good deal, just curious if there is something I should look for in that diesel engine.

they sometimes get hot if your not careful, the PMD (brain that controls the injection pump) will fail, giving you the illusion that the pump is bad, but its just the driver. Other than that they are good engines.
