1991 FORD MEDIUM HEAVY F700F - Any Information??

I posted earlier under General Diesel and I was looking to get some more feedback:

If anyone has any thoughts, please comment on this type truck. I am looking at one for sale right now, asking price is approx $10,000. I want to use it for small asphalt repairs 5 to 15 tons. I was told that it just had a new alternator installed & batteries.
There is a placard on the motor that sais FORD; but the owner says it is a Detroit Diesel 6.6 / 6 cylinder. Automatic with 151,000 on the odometer.

Here are some pictures - http://community.webshots.com/user/thrillamilla123

$10k seems a little on the high side for that truck IMO but not completely out of line depending on condition of the drivetrain and bed? The engine is a Ford New Holland 6.6 Diesel if it is grey and says Ford on it. Brazilian built engine that were used and the bigger brother 7.8 (same engine alot of parts are interchangable) for quite a number of years in the F600-800 and LN8000 tractors. Not an terrible motor but not the greatest either. They are not the biggest power monsters out there but then again in 91 there weren't alot of options on engines. 91 was about the end of the line for them they stopped using them in 92 some early build 93's. Some of the know problems they have that I have experienced are the fuel shutoff solenoid mounted on the pumps are BIG $$ and of course the water pumps are prone to failure. If you have the last 8 digits of the VIN I can tell you the rest of the drivetrain and some other specs about it if you want to PM it to me.

I think it's a good deal for $10,000. You can replace the motor down the road for pretty cheap, maybe even get a rebuilt 7.8L Ford diesel next time around.

The plus side of that truck is that it's a crew cab, and it has a nice looking dump on it. Hopefully he's including a tailgate?

The 6.6L Ford/New Holland will get the job done.

The allison trans is a gamble. Most of the time, they're OK. Just make sure you test drive the truck as much as you need to check the shifting, make sure to check reverse. Pull the dipstick to check for burnt smelling or discolored fluid. Check the trans for leaks, shifter likage problems.

Is it an airbrake truck? (hopefully it is)

that looks like a great truck for 10K. I saw a brake compressor, so I assume its air brakes. if the trans fluid doesn't smell burnt, and shifts OK, and the engine sounds good, I'd jump on it. the crew cab is a big plus, at least in my opinion. (but I'm biased)

IMO, being a crew cab adds a lot to the value, particularly if you have a work crew. Nothing like a bunch of sweaty guys carmmed together to ruin your day.
