Default 1990 Orion Transit Bus w/ GM 8.2L

Hi everyone,

We're considering buying a 1990 Orion II Transit Bus for a brewery bus tour business in Utah, and we have some concerns about the engine.

According to the VIN, the bus has the GM 8.2L diesel engine, also known as the "fuel pincher". We're also assuming its the naturally aspirated engine, not turbo due to the 145hp rating.

According to the seller, the engine has about 50k miles on it.

We've read some pretty bad reviews about this engine. Does anyone have any experience with this 8.2L used in transit buses, and would local diesel mechanics know how to work on it?
