What do you guys think about this truck?

99 F-350 Crew Cab Dually sale or trade
What could the compression loss be? Could it be something cheap or is it not worth it?

Pretty sure the only way to get the compression back is to do a rebuild.
That may be worth it though, seems like the truck could be had for pretty cheap.

I would say its a very good deal. Add up all the other stuff that's new and replaced. If body and interior are as good as it says. If you can and are able to do a short block swap you could flip the truck for $12-14k. 7.3's are getting to be a bit more in demand due to no emissions crap on them. Sooo no worries about testing.
