I think this might be a good deal

Alright was browsing the craigslist and i stumbled upon something in my home town ,I was very surprised because I hadnt seen any other diesel trucks in town.


On craigslist for 600$ obo this poped up.


Diesel engine 7.3 powerstroke - $600----Diesel engine out of my truck. 108 k miles. ran well when removed. stored indoors. will load.


is this a good deal? he lives in the same town as me, and I dont need an engine but it seems like a decent deal

He doesn't say if its an old 7.3 or a new 7.3, but would it matter? either engine will drop in? im guessing it has all the parts


calling him up tomorrow. maybe ill try to get it for 350 or 400$ out the door.


thanks guys

that sounds like a very good deal. you could use the injectors as cores if you ever wanted performance ones, same goes for hpop i think. either way youve got parts to last you a long tim,e or you could part it out for white a bit more than you got it for

one more questions, lets say this is a newer 7.3, intercooler and wastegated turbo,


My engine in my truck OBS gives up the ghost, could i put a new engine in direct replacement? i would have all engine parts.

If it's a later 99 on up truck engine then no, it will not be a direct drop in. The only thing that you can really use would be the long block. Front cover, fuel filter, turbo and all the wiring will be different between the two.

It is a good deal though, because you could probably sell the injector cores and make back the money you paid for the engine, not to mention selling the HPOP and turbo.

i would keep the hpop, it is an improvement over our stock 15*, and techinacally speaking the turbo, up pipes, and all is an improvement over our stock ones as well

This is a power stroke from a 2002 f 250 106 k miles on it. A very long story. The truck was guarinteed by ebay and the engine was replaced by them because of an oil leak that was hidden by seller.


Thats what he told me, its makes sense, the guy lives about 5 mins up the road from me, i didnt even realize he had a 7.3


so basically the actually engine is exactly the same? crank pistons bearings block ect, but the electronics are different, turbo is different, injectors ect.



But i could use the injectors as cores, or sell them on here most likely,


I could use the HPOP

and i could use the turbo if it has the pipes/ pedistol ect.

it will have a different internals than your current one, your truck has forged pistons and rods, that newer block will be powder metal rods, or pmr. but a chip correctly tuned could run those injectors as well, but pretty much top end is gonna be useless to ya, and bottom end is fine, good luck

well, i figure if there isnt that much that will fit, and i dont expect my truck to fail ill save the money and fix what breaks when it breaks, i dont have a ton of money, im only 17 and its my first diesel, i take care of her and hopefully she will take care of me.


what this PMR? never heard of that, its a technique to manurfacture rods?


powered metal...huh doesn't sound as strong as forged, whats the scoop on this?


why PMR? is it stronger? cheaper? huh...


thanks a ton guys!!
