    Could someone tell me what engine is in my truck? I'm thinking about selling it and want to provide the right info. It's a 1998 Chevy C6500 gas engine and the transmission is 5+2 Spd manual. The 8th digit of the VIN is M. That is supposed to identify the engine somehow? I've looked online but can't figure it out. Thanks.

    8.1 liter vortec was common in those but can't tell you for sure that is what you have.......

    No its not the 8.1 vortec. I have that in my 2001 dump. I don't think that was offered in 98'.
