I cannot find anybody willing to work on the Detroit 8.2 in all of Oregon. I used to have a guy who worked at a truck shop who would work on them but he retired. I know of one shop in Seattle that will work on them but that is a four day trip crosssing the Columbia bar and 200 miles of Pacific Ocean. No one in the PNW will rebuild a 8.2.
Which is really too bad. I know that the 8.2s have a reputation but we have 2,400 hours with no major failures. Just pumps, gaskets and one turbo. But they are starting to leak oil and I need a injector timing etc...
