Wasn't the 2.9 a diesel motor? I don't think we have many if any of those here. You can just post in the 4-Banger forum, I don't think anyone will mind.

The 2.9 was not a diesel it's a fuel injected v6, It is a pretty good motor imo, the main probelem with them were the heads were prone to cracking. the motor ran i beleive from 87-91.Anyways you should be fine just posting in the general tech forums.

And will outrun a 3.0 anyday. Loud, crude, and unrefined. Exactly how I like it. Vulcans, ugh.

I loved my old '88 with the 2.9! I miss that little beast of a truck!
