Yeah i thought diesel in the intake wouldnt do anything so i asked him when i was there if he was using starting fluid he said he was didnt really bother me too bad because i knew that if he had to use that the glowplugs were probley burnt, so i brought a battery to try to turn the engine over and the sender by the thermostat housing started to smoke so i unplugged it, then turned it over it barely wanted to move it had been sitting for a year, so he was asking 900 i paid 600 its a 1986 f-250 2 wheel drive in great shape for the year and only 157,000 on it and 5000 miles on new trans and good tires, so when i got it home i put a couple used batteries in it and hooked it up to the charger still not turning fast enough so i went and bought 2 850ca and 1000cca batteries and installed them still slow and no firing, next day i went and bought a injection pump from a junkyard installed it still nothing, so i remembered on my 6.9 when it turned slow the starter was cooked so i took the new one off my other 6.9 and put it on my new one sprayed a tiny bit off either and she fired right up runs very smooth and quiet and more get up and go than i expected, so i bought new gps which the old ones were all burnt 2 were stuck but i got them out without breaking tips but what else to expect when there champions, bought a couple new parts to get it on the road, now i go outside wait for the gps and it fires right up, the only thing is the high idle isnt getting power and that sender by the thermostat housing was smoking i forgot what that was. but other wise a real good truck that i could easily triple my money on but i love the old 6.9s and its staying with me, i'll get some pics up soon. Now i think it was the gps and starter all along my other injection pumps still good, its nice to have a extra one and i only paid 79.00 for the one thats on it and a air cleaner assembly.
