possibly buying another obs

gonna maybe go look at a 97 cclb 4x4 auto tomorrow with 174k on it. he says it needs pcm, turbo and power steering pump. it has a new idm, new reman trans, dayco converter and shift kit, 3 inch dp and 4 inch dp back. i was going to bring one a my manual trans pcm to see if it starts. i will bring some tools and an ohm meter to pop off valve covers and check uvch's and vcg's and ohm injectors. what else should i be looking for? thanks

Re: possibly buying another obs

Unessasary leaks, signs of neglect obviously. You say it's missing a turbo make sure nothing has gotten in the intake while it's been sitting without a turbo. Other than that sounds like you know what your doing.

On edit: if it has the TTB front axle make sure it isn't about to junk.

Re: possibly buying another obs

I wouldn't diag too much in front of the guy, lots of these trucks are mis diagnosed, I would check the turbo for dusting and general wear and tear to the vehicle and make an educated guess. if the motor and trans are solid, (guess, i know) the rest wont be too bad to sort out. I have a turbo for it, I don't know the condition of this turbo, but i'm sure it could be rebuilt. where is the truck? let us know what you find.

I thought you could use a manual trans pcm in an auto? Or is the other way around?
