Got a chance to buy a '96 CC 4X F350 for $3500 or less. Body is straight, running gear great, front end just gone through, 100K, AT in good condition, etc... Was also a slope truck. I'm going to look at it next week.
Guy loaned it out, glow plugs didn't start it at -35, no plug ins so friend used ether. Now runs like crap. Guy think it cracked a head. What should I look for/test to confirm that? Other ideas/thoughts as to extent of damage?
Ad said it ran rough so I figured it would be the uvcg, cps or ipr... Don't mind tearing into it, I know where I can get parts and this would give me a chance to get DIY injectors done and swapped into mine with less down time.
