HELP WITH PURCHASE

I am about to buy a 1995 F350 crew 7.3 with ZF5 no rust runs great but will not downshift into 2nd when moving, have to come to a stop. Someone said it is Servo not big deal and this has 1000,000 on engine, 245,000 on body and trans. It is $5000 and i never owned one but really want diesel. Is this a good buy with trans shifting problem? thanks

Thread finished truck purchased, thanks for your input & help!

Auto or Manual trans? Either way...offer $4000 he will sell it! He will take it unless it's showroom quality!

Sorry just re-read it...zf5! Got it $4000 tops may be just a synchro or could be worse...probably not though!

thanks

Thank you, he was asking $5500 and is a mechanic at a dodge dealer $4800 is his bottom price.It does have a leather interior that is sweet out of an eddie bauer truck, no rust, new brake and ball joints. 100,000 on rebuilt motor T&S 6 position chip, S&B intake with 150/60 injectors and it is a turbo does that mean more $ or less money?

Ok well I was thinking almost bone stock kind of thing...if his true bottom is $4800 with all those add-ons doesn't sound like a bad deal! I'd go to the bank and show him what $4500 looked like to be honest, stuck that extra $300 in the glove box just incase he won't budge!

I appreciate you taking the time and help! 1st diesel a little gun-shy but really have wanted one for yrs. I have old car I haul around and my son is getting into hotrods always nice to have something to haul with. My 01 Tahoe limps down the road with a trailer and car almost dangerous, LOL.

No problem! Did you end up getting the truck? It sounded like a pretty good deal! The manual trans is not hard to rebuild, replace clutch or work on! You will love it! Night and day different from the Tahoe!

Monday after work went to bank yesterday!

I spoke with him yesterday and he said Monday after work he will be ready (he was buying a car to get to work and needed car before selling truck). I should have the truck Monday evening, the only thing I have not been able to do is start it up cold everytime I see the truck he has been driving due to his daily driver and my schedule. Should I be worried. He seems like a nice enough guy who is a mechanic at a dodge dealer.
