I'm not sure if it's a #10 or a #11. I was told it's the equivalent of a D8.
The engine says GM on it and it's bigger than 2 BBC's.
I put the plow truck battery that I used to get the Massey started in it today
and it turned over just fine. I don't want to try to start it until I pull the drain plug to see if there's water in the crank case (the oil is showing a couple quarts over full) Here's a picture of one that looks a lot like it but of course there's no way to reference size

GM diesel would be a Detroit Diesel, a division of GM at that time I think. GMC had gas engines, not sure if they made a diesel?

If it's a Detroit, it's probably a 6-71, 318hp. Tough engine with factory installed oil leaks, lol. Two stroke, every stroke was a power stroke, and they slobbered oil. Old joke was if it quit leaking oil, it was fixing to blow up because it was dry.

Bama is right, GM motors have the nickname Jimmie.
You probably have the #16 like the picture. My brother is rebuilding a #10 and it's like an older D6 Cat. It will have a 4 cylinder GM in it when he gets it done.

Bama, I knew a guy years ago in Centreville that had a 56 GMC truck he pulled a lowboy to haul his HD16 dozier. The truck had what I thought was a GMC "Jimmie" diesel engine. If I remember right it was V6 with a big old blower on it.
