99 - f250 powerstoke, cross members cut!
Hey everyone, I am brand spankin new to this site, so be nice....
I just picked up a 1999 F250 Powerstroke, 7.3L. I got it for $3300 cdn, and it has about 350,000kms, on it, now it does need some work, ie. the turbo is done.
But that doesnt bother me, what bothers me is that when I went crawling around underneath I was looking at the oil pan for leaks and what not, and noticed that the cross members right below the pan were cut with a torch, and then welded back on - no doubt to access the oil pan to replace it... the welds look pretty ****, what is the best thing to do here? Just get under and weld it up nice? I'm not sure if its a factor for getting the truck saftied. I hate people who dont do things the right way! Any advice would be great, as I am scared this truck will turn in to a money pit
