Re: A little insight..
In my personal experience, any time a diesel engine doesn't run right the knowledgeable person will say "it's glow plugs." Strike one. You've found parts in the back seat, plus an aftermarket addition (coolant filter). Strike two.
I think the "dealer lost the keys" is a HIGHLY suspicious statement.
I'm not saying don't buy it, but I'd definitely plan on putting $2000-5000 in fixing and upgrading. Mine needed a lot, but I paid a fair price for it that considered.
I highly recommend having a Scangauge II with you when you actually can drive it. Definitely check the usual (stone cold start, hot start, ECT/EOT after extended driving, etc.). If the truck is solid and you have a good idea of what it needs, go for it. I know manual trans 6.0s aren't easy to come by. What's the price, and how many miles?
2004 F-250 Lariat, 6.0, SCLB, 4wd, Magnaflow turbo-back, EGR delete, studded, 6.4 banjo, new oil cooler and HPOP as of 5-11-2014
