    According to the book Contempoary Diesel Spotters Guide(Louis Marre c.1995), most of the main spotting differences between the GP-40 and 40-2 were the bolted down battery boxes(as Tom mentioned in the thread:GP-40 vs. Gp-40-2) and the site glass located on the engineers side, towards the rear. Most was an upgraded electrical. Any GP-40-2 built between the years of 1983 to 1986 had the free flow blower on the left side.
