Chevrolet P30 Mallard Sprinter MH 6.2 V8

Hi All,

I am new to this group and owning a Motorhome. I decide to get something a little retro so I bought an old Chevy MH made by Mallard. I am based in Ireland so engine parts could be tricky to get - does anyone have any advice. I am completely refurbishing the interior as it had a lot of damp. I can handle that - but engines are my weakness so any thoughts about where I can easily buy engine parts such as a timing belt etc would be appreciated.

The base model is a Chevy P30 van 6.2L V8.

Thanks, Andy.

You listed the 6.2 V8, so that is the Diesel engine, correct? Parts for them are pretty common as Chevrolet made it for about 20 years.
Good luck with it.

The 6.2 Diesel is a very solid engine.I worked at a GM dealer 30 years and saw very few failures with the engines. The biggest failure we saw were with the Fuel Injection pumps specifically the governor ring inside the pump. These rings were made of plastic and would flake apart and plug the fuel return valve at the top of the injection pump. Make sure to change fuel filters and check for rust inside the old filters by cutting them open. If rust is found, the source of the rust is the fuel tank, which will need to be replaced or repaired.
