Exclamation Gtndrty's Motor Thread

So I was looking for a coolant leak and this is what I found.

I changed the oil cooler o-rings and noticed I was still loosing coolant, but I was just getting a film in the crankcase. So then I pulled all of the injectors and checked for a cup leaking. Didn't find anything wrong there so I figured it had to be a head gasket. Since the inside of the drivers side valve cover looked worse than the pass. side, I removed that head first. The gasket was leaking into #2 cylinder. I don't know what would've caused the damage to the top of the piston because the head looks good and the glowplug tip is still there. You can't tell in the pic but there's a ridge down the side of the cylinder wall also.

Currently this is where I'm at on the project now.

Re: Gtndrty's Motor Thread

I'll do my best.
Bigdogg over at TDS had a '96 motor with 96K on it. He told me it was complete, ready to drop in and run. It came out of a buddys truck that got t-boned in the bed in NC. He didn't have compression #'s but said it was running good when they pulled it. I paid him $2600 for it shipped from Somerset,PA to SW Kansas. From the day he received my cashiers check it took him 30 days to get me the motor. Said he was gone and the freight company didn't get it picked up. When I received the motor it had a shipping label that said Big Dog Sales on it, even though I sent him a check in his name. Once I got the saran wrap off the motor I noticed alot of things wrong with it. For one they used a cut up seat belt tied trhu the lift eyes to lift it with. That along with the shipping label made me think it came from a salvage yard, one thing I was trying to stay away from. The dipstick is held in the oil pan with a bunch of rtv, it has a broken exhaust manifold bolt, the intake is missing along with the fuel filter canister, the cps and the complete wiring and a few other sensors. The oil pan itself is all beat up and the turbo looks trashed. And for only having 96K on it I think it's unusual that the hpop has been replaced and the fuel lines from the fuel pump have been replaced. It also has a drivers side vc that has a filler neck or something like it coming up on the front side of it. He did give me his phone # so when I finally got ahold of him he said that he runs a truck repair shop and his helper was taking some of the items off that motor because they were going to put it in his personal pickup, but it was going to take to much to convert it to the newer style so he found a newer motor and decided to use it and sell this one. He said all the missing parts were probably on the workbench and he would send them to me. That was over month ago. He never would comment on the other problems just kept talking around them. Then I lost him on the phone. Now he won't return any of my pm's thru TDS and won't return my phone messages I leave him.

Click on my Webshots link and then click on the PSD Motor link to see a few pics of the motor I received. It should be all the pics on the first page in that album.

Damn sorry you got hosed. I had saw his ads over there and wondered how he always had stuff. Sounds more like he has a wrecking yard.
