Pretty sure I'm getting a good deal.

Well tomorrow, if the guy shows up with the title, I will be buying a '92 CCLB 4x4 standard for 200 bucks. The only thing is it doesn't run, but hey for $200 i figure why not, everything else works.

Very cool. Do you know what is wrong with the motor? Is it fixable?

Well he said that he drove it to where it is now and parked it. Then the next morning he went to start it and had to remove the glow plugs and blow water out of the cylinders. I dont even know if that sounds right. So I will see when I get it.

It is possible for the blocks to cavitate so bad that it could... but either way IDI's arent super hard to find and you could always swap a obs 7.3 in, lots of motor options... good deal for a rolling chassis

the 7.3 IDI is a bored out 6.9 motor.. so the walls are even thinner and motors neglected without the proper SCA/DCA coolant additives or ELC coolant can break down and cavitate.. the vibrations that the diesel motors make with the high compression literally breaks down the walls in the cooling passages.. i hope that makes sense im explaining the best i know how. im no expert.. but ya.

Sounds like it to me

Sounds like a good deal to me. If you wind up with parts to sell, let me know. I've got a 1992 350 CCLB 4X4 auto

Wow. I had no idea about that at all, and yes it make sense thank you for the help. Well this is going to sound dumb but i would assume that means a whole new motor. And if so will a 7.3L turbo powerstroke bolt into that truck.

Thanks for the heads up - don't need mechanics bed. Did you get the truck? What shape's the chassis in?
