I own an '82 winnebago that came with the 6.2 diesel. These engines
have a bad rep but will do ok if maintained properly and not abused.
however, if I were to convert a gasser to diesel I would use a
Cummins 5.9. They are much superior to the old 6.2's and can be
found fairly cheaply out of wrecked Dodge pickups. Better mileage
than a 6.2, more power, and better longevity.
