I just talked with the seller. He following is some of what he had to say:
He said that he replaced the two-piece flywheel with the single-piece assembly. However, this makes the transmission noisier, and that is why Ford used a two-piece assembly in the first place. He also stated that this was done at about 75,000 miles. Even under gentle driving conditions, I would think that the clutch is almost toast.
The seller also stated that these trucks eat lower ball joints, and this truck would probably need them soon. He said the reason for frequent replacement is the front end weight.
The final things I asked about were the glow plugs, glow plug harness, and the camshaft position sensor. He said he replaced the glow plugs and harness about two years ago. He said he had never had any problems with the CPS. That seemed odd, because a lot of posts I have read, this part fails often.
That is what he had to say. I am thinking that for his asking price, $5000, I could spend a little more and find a newer truck with much fewer miles. I would like to hear what you guys think. Thanks, Justin.
