So local kid here in Idaho has an ECLB F-250. 94 PSD. 5spd, 4x4, 200,000. Perfect for me to merge with mine and get a Long bed, then put one semi crappy SB back together and sell it cheap. (ish
) So I called the kid, truck won't start. He doesn't have any clue why, can't tell me symptoms. Says he tried to start it last week, cranked on it for like 15 min straight then just quit... so the starter is toast, we can start there.
I asked him if it smoked at all, he says "dude, when it's pegged you can't see anything there's so much smoke" once again,
Yes, there is white smoke on cranking, we managed to deduce that, with a little effort
I asked him if he'd ever tested the GPR. He asked what a GPR is
Asked if he plugged it in when it gets cold out... He lauged and said they only car you can plug in is one of those gay @$$ hybrid electric cars...
He wants 9000.
I offered him 1500, told him it sounded like the motor was shot, and i'd have to rebuild it.
Is that terrible? Or is he dumb enough I can do it with a clean conscience?
I figured it'd at least be worth a laugh.
