Jose,
If you can get me the engine model number and serial number, I maybe able to help you. I teach diesel technology at a college in SoCal, If I don't have it, some of my industry contacts may.
Tom

What's the problem? We've got 200K on our diesel.

I have a 1982 Airstream 31ft. My Isuzu is a 6BDT-1. The serial number is at the left front, lower part of cylinder block. Give Isuzu that number and I think thay can get you a book

What's the problem? Those are bullet-proof engines. The book is not available to my knowledge.

You have a 6BD1A engine. If it's a California coach, it's a 6BD1H.

Hi Tom,

Sorry for the delay in responding to your message. I fixed my head and wanted to know if you could get me the torque sequence for the head. The engine model is 6BD1, the engine size is 353 cu.in.

Thank you kindly,

Jose

Jose,
I see that your motorhome is a 1981 model, is the engine also 1981 or ?. I am just making sure, sometimes the chassis/engine could have been made the year before depending when the motorhome was made. Specs could be different.
