I had a well used 82 Chevy Caprice with the 5.7 diesel that I bought in 1995. Motor looked just like the one on the snow blower,, kinda sounded and smoked similiar also. Was not a powerhouse but it did ok and would get 25-30 mpg highway. Only problem I had with it were glow plugs burned out one by one but other than that she was a champ. Rest of the car slowly went to pot so 4 years later it was time to send it packing.
