My poor '93 IDI's been beyond the term "neglected". My wife & I knew after we bought it off some guy that had no clue about diesels(or general vehicle maintainence for that matter), that the Tank was gonna need some TLC......well yesterday & today, I found out exactly how much TLC the Tank needs. To give you a clue as to how much:
. Get the point? So anyway, here's a list of what I'm up against. The whole project is gonna cost a pretty penny over a nickel & soon, I'll try to get some pics of why these parts need to be replaced. So here it is, the long list that just shows how much I love my IDI.
R/L front rotors
R/L U/L ball joints
R/L locking hubs
R/L outer tie-rods
R/L adjusting sleeves
Inner drag link
R/L brake pads
R/L dust shields
R/L axles & u-joints
R/L hub seals
Front driveshaft u-joints
Rear driveshaft u-joints
Rear brake drums
Rear brake shoes
Shoe spring kit
complete cat-back exhaust(current exhaust is definitely for a gasser @ 2.5")
Driver's door switch
Possible rear fuel tank(original owner said he never used it!)
General maint.(oil, filter, fuel filt, etc.)
Fuel(with the above parts list in dire need, she sucks fuel down like it's going outta style!)
& that's it. Just for the front-end alone, it's gonna be about $580 before tax. Believe it or not, with the whole bill for everything tallied up, it still doesn't exceed the price we bought the truck for. It's really sad when a perfectly good diesel truck falls into the wrong hands of a person who should've been driving a hybrid where he wouldn't have to worry about actual moving parts. I'm happy I found the Tank when I did. It's still a great truck, but if the previous owner kept it any longer, it would've been bound for the heap.
