I've seen some real nice N/A IDI's go for $6K+. I'm sure I could convert mine back to N/A and sell it for a good $4K easy.

Just go look at it. Tell us how it starts cold. Any smoke. When the engine is warm, take the oil fill cap off and look at blowby. Tell us what you find.

i picked up my '86 6.9 for only 550. its my first truck, let alone my first diesel and i love it. it wasnt run for a year and a few months before i bought it and all ive done is change the oil and glow plugs and put on a new starter. all it needed to pass inspection was a headlight bulb. check it out, might be a good buy.

I would look at it. I wish I could find a cheap IDI around me. That would be cool to have..... OMG, I have too many money sucking projects. I need to finish what I started.. I need to finish what I started.. I need to finish what I started.. I need to finish what I started.. I need to finish what I started..
