Causes of metallic fragments...
Ford mechanic told me....that's it. You need a new engine!!
That was over a year ago. I've been sick so I haven't followed through on finding another mechanics opinion here in Lecanto Florida...and the truck, in beautiful condition could possibly be resurrected by finding the real problem of why it "died". It's a pristine white 350 with the drivers side head removed.
Anyone near Lecanto Florida can stop by and give an opinion, or call me at
352-527-1407...Someone mentioned oil pump. The Inverness Ford mechanic was hohum with his attitude. Only 75,000 on the engine...a Lariat with all the bells and whistles...a 2003, sold originally at $50K...I paid 35K for it in 2006.
I could let it go if I don't hear from someone soon....perhaps your interested?
It's right on my RV site @ Lecanto Hills Mobile Home and RV Park...#32.
80 Next Feb and don't think I'll ever drive it again...Wondered if any local people were interested in stopping by, checking it out, and making an offer. Thanks!
