It's in Milford, OH not Milford, MI
It already had the water pump changed and the glow plug relay changed.
I'm just sent an email on the flywheel. It was a beater but it started right up and didn't smoke a bit. This kid went to diesel school for two years or so he says. The body and interior is ROUGH but the truck is only $2500. The exhaust needs to be completely replaced. There was no play in the turbo. The valve cover gaskets were just done with a new injector harness.
Another thing that I'm concerned about is that it doesn't shift into gears that easy and he said something about new syncros . . . I thought it would shift really easy with those but it does shift. The clutch grabs right at the floor. I thought it should grab at the top but I don't know on that either.
The trans is the ZF 5-speed. He went through two (the orignal and a cheepy from the junk yard) autos and said F**K it and put the ZF in. It still has the colum shifter
Thanks once again for the insight and please give more!!
