bad, bad, bad, bad news.....
So, I've written a few times on here about my engine rebuild that i was hoping was going to be done by this weekend. Turns out the motor i bought to rebuild is a piece of S**T. So I buy this motor from this guy who claims and swears up and down it has 60,xxx miles on it, so we crack it open yesterday and the motor looks like it has 300,xxx miles on it. (Take into consideration i paid 2,000 for this complete motor from turbo to pan. So now, I have to start all over again.
Hopefully i think i found a block in town. At least this motor has the good rods in it, one plus. I guess enough of my drama, now just a question...
I was looking at diesel direct's web page and I'm looking for a set of pistons and i noticed they had a set for about 550. Does that seem right to you guys?? And they offer pistons that are lower compression aftermarket turbo charger pistons for another 300. I already bought a ball buster for it, studs, the works, thinking i had a good builder block.
Sorry for all the writing, just completely pissed off right now how bad i got taken on a SUPPOSABLY low miles motor.
Any suggestions on the pistons would be much appreciated.
