I Give Up for the 80yr old...??

Not if I can get my 350 Superduty and Excel 33' RKO, both vintage 2003, towed up to Gainesville from Lecanto, where I try to relocate at the VFW Village community sometime in the next week. As previouly mentioned, the Ford Dealer in Inverness disassembled the driver side and because they found metallic fragments in the oil, pronounced the Odometer-reading 80K engine unrepairable.

Like is there an experienced Ford attorney still willing to sue to get this
gem repaired, gratus...I'd like a telephone number before I give up the ghost in my new location.

I'd just like to then sell my truck and 5th Wheel for $20K or best offer.
I paid over $70K for both in 200 when they had 47K miles on them.

Give me a call if you're anywhere near Gainesville and interested in making a deal. My phones: LL 352-527-1407 Cell: 352-476-2073

He is selling a truck because a ford dealer told him that the engine was done, not so hard to understand

Very sorry for the unintelligable post.

It was after spending hours on the roof of my RV, after losing the air.

I didn't mean to be snippy, etc., just that I at my wits end over the "diagnosis" that I needed an entire rebuilt engine.

I'm having a difficult time with finances, living conditions, and the possibility of having to move into a VA facility.

I'd rather stay in this 2003 RV and forget giving up my two dogs...suffer along with my $1000 month Soc.Sec. Check.

It possibly could be just the damage from the oil pump that caused the particles.
I'll just probably stay here in Lecanto Hills Mobile Home and RV Park, and pray that somehow, someway and someday I'll get my truck running again. Sorry for the bad post.

Thanks for replying...
I decided I can't move because of my social security being only $1000 a month. So the truck sits here with the driver's side head pulled off and sitting in the back seat. For some Diesel Mechanic who's looking for the challenge of getting in on the road again, it will be a nice find...the rest of the truck is great looking inside and out. Has a electric tow hitch.
Wish I could trade it for just a means of basic transportation...can't even get to a dollar store from where I live...4400 Gulf To Lake Hwy., Lecanto, FL.
