Hey so I just bought a 1995 7.3 with 290k miles for $250 It does run leaks oil and gas low compression in two cylinders. Shops want 5k for a rebuild but I can’t afford that I’m paying for school. Does anyone think that it could be something else? Easier or cheaper fix? I would rebuild it myself but I am not super mechanically inclined and I don’t have lots of tools. Any ideas?

Low compression is usually rings. If it's rings you're going to be pulling it and going through it. Sell it and get a gas engine truck.

Get a used 7.3 out of a junkyard and throw it in there.
