Supposed to be Ford Reman Motor w/ 30k-Wont Run
Heres my situation in a nutshell. I bought a 01 Lariat 7.3L from a guy after my 99s cab burnt up. I bought the truck knowing it would only spin over and not fire up. My plan was to tinker with it and if i couldnt get it to run just swap my motor in. But when i was loadin it on the trailer he tells me its a ford reman with 30k miles, and hes a body man not a diesel tech and didnt wanna fool with it.
So first Question is: Is there anyway to find out if it truly is a reman? Maybe a tag or stamp somewhere? If it really is id like to get it running. My motor is strong but read 168k when it burnt, but i was running for 46s for a year so its really closer to 200k+ im sure.
Next Question: Any ideas what could be wrong? Good Batteries, Gets plunty of fuel, New starter, does not have the black cps. The dummy did pull the turbo off, Why? Idk? But im gonna go back with a new one when i put it back together.
Any input would be greatly appreciated!!
