I'll try and find a place to do that buzz test.
You can buy this one with 107k. It's been nothing but a headache. I had always wanted an OBS with a 7.3 for their power and reliability. Then I found this one with 89000 on it a little over a year ago and I thought I had it made. Sure enough I've had to replace the motor because the previous owner sold the truck to me with a crack in the block concealed with JB weld and nicely hidden behind the starter.
Swapped the motor with a donor of another 350. And now I've got an injector down, read main seal leak (which i replaced before installing the new motor),oil cooler leak and a few other leaks. And on top of that my old motor with all my spare parts is sitting in the garage of my not so friendly x-girlfriends house.
Thank you for dealing with my rant about this truck. BUZZ TEST IT IS!!!
1995 f-350, 108,000 miles and climbing, second motor with approximately 130,000 miles on it.
DIY Intake, stage 2 injectors from Rosewood, 3" DP to 5"side dump with a 6" Tip
HPOP, 6.0 IC (anyone have a spyder?) and E fuel to come
