$70 is on the low end around here too!

Sorry you'll be without your truck.

yea it goes in the shop next wed!!! but its actually $79 an hour for the diesel mechanic so i guess thats really good. he replaced the clutch in our John Deer 870 tractor in one day and it runs like a dream so i guess hes a good mechanic ive heard good things about him around town so ill give it a shot! the hpop resivoir my ford parts guy is getting me a discount for 45.00 out the door and 20.00 for the gaskets so i guess in a way its my lucky day

looking on the bright side ill save over 200.00 in fuel costs cause ill be driving a company take home truck! should be real easy to support this truckers strike
