used motor question
So I just picked up a 1994 f350 crewcab 5 speed powerstroke with a dead #8 cyl and I'm looking at used motors. I had really good luck with the last used motor I bough that had 125K for $500 but not having such good luck finding another cheep used motor this time around.
I found a 94.5 psd
at a wrecking yard for $675 but it had a fire under the hood, they claim it was not engine related. My question is what besides the wiring and all the fuel and oil lines fuel bowl could be damaged by a fire? If I were to buy this one do I need to do a total tare down and replace all the gaskets? What other parts can be damaged? Valve guides, injectors, gaskets???
