    Oh well. Driving back to ISU my friend was driving while I was asleep in back and ran the truck *almost* dry now she won't start. Heads cracked before, bad enough now that she won't start up. No coolant in my oil and no rod knock to speak of so bottom end is most probably still good. Mods go ahead and move this if you feel the need to put it in the FS but I think it will get more directed views in this forum.

    SOLD PARTS:
    Top and bottom radiator support brackets/rubber thingys

    105 Amp Alternator

    4 Core Radiator

    Pr 4 gauge wires

    Intake manifold W/O EGR (bought to upgrade before truck died) $40 shipped


    Parts FS:

    6.2 bottom end $75 Incl vacuum pump, fuel pump, water pump you pick up

    Stanadyne pump w/injector lines and injectors $140 shipped work good

    Intake manifold w/EGR $29 shipped

    Isspro 3" pyrometer $45 shipped (no thermocouple - bought to upgrade before truck died)

    Heads are going in the scrap pile unless somebody wants them free + shipping BADLY CRACKED

    Valve covers $20 shipped

    Water crossover $15 shipped

    NA exhaust manifolds $50 shipped pr

    Engine mounts $40 shipped pr

    Starter works fine custom rebuild by a diesel shop in minneapolis $50 + shipping

    700r4 with governor for diesel and strong gasser TC (higher stall), low miles works great $200

    NP208 Part-time transfer case works fine no noises $100
    Take both above for $250 will need to be picked up.

    '83 K5 frame, front disks, 4" lift, new front driveshaft, rancho shocks all around (about 3 yrs old), new rancho steering stabilizer (less than 6 months), D44 front w/full time hubs 3.73 open, PS box, GM 10 bolt rear 3.73 open drums. $150 obviously will need to be picked up. Will include tub/front fenders/doors if you want but all have some serious dents and tub is rotted behind seats and in rockers. Will throw in a patch panel for PS front floor and rockers if I still have them.

    5x BFGoodrich 33x12.5", 3/4 tread left, on GM 6 lug ralleys $150 set need to be picked up

    Buy both above for $250

    Fiberglass top free with any purchase you get to pick up. $20 alone still needs to be picked up.

    straight hood black w/hinges $45 you pick up

    Sun visor (lund style) black fiberglass $50 shipped

    Tailgate has rust along bottom and 1 hole near the top, power window works good. $45 you pick up

    Truck is currently in ames behind the mechanics shop and is headed back to minnesota friday or saturday. So if you want parts and live in iowa or southern MN, get back to me before then.

    I have pictures of some stuff I'm waiting on my sister to send them to me since they're on a digicam at home. Should be on my laptop later today (tuesday)

    if you're interested in parts or have questions, email me at botboy60 (at) hotmail.com or post in this thread. Bumps appreciated. Help the poor college student!

    If you want the whole truck I would like to get $550 for it since its got a lot of goodies. I'll deliver to within 100 miles of ames, minneapolis, or anywhere in between for free for anyone who wants to buy it as a whole.

    Drey, I can store the stuff for you in my garage in Delano, minnesota for free if I get payment beforehand. I make a trip up to minnesota at least once a month and would be bringing it back here to Ames with me.

    Afroman, I'm currently residing in the Helser residence hall at ISU in Ames, Iowa for classes. My home is in Delano, Minnesota about 30 minutes west of minneapolis

    Previous owner told me it was a Dick Cepek suspension lift, 4". I would prefer to sell frame and body as one if I could, body is basically free with frame since its dented and rusty.

    Which rear seat belt? The side belts or the ones on the seat? Hex head bolts or the ones that hold the seat to the floor/bed?

    Forgot to add the rear seat is also FS, grey rear seat, no rips, overall pretty good condition, I keep it in garage out of the weather unless I'm hauling people around. $60 + shipping but I would prefer this one get picked up.

    is this the 6.5TD cross over? If so, I'll take it.

    I am pretty sure the water crossover will fit a 6.5 but it isn't originally off of a 6.5...your choice there.

    I had won the pyrometer off of ebay, It needs a thermocouple to work (standard equipment on all pyrometers) sometimes they put lone thermocouples up there by themselves. PM me and I can send you the address where to send a check to get the pyrometer otherwise I'm just going to pay the guy I won it from listing fees to take it and relist it.

    The side belt bolts are pretty rusty, let me see what I can do but no guarantees I'll actually be able to get them off without snapping the bolt tops off. $15 shipped for the belts and bolts if I don't destroy them sound good?

    Body & frame (no drivetrain, hood, tailgate, interior, wheels, and possibly gas tank) $150
    Truck as it sits currently with everything $500

    Heads cracking allowing coolant loss into cylinders is a common problem with the 6.2. Ran dry - coolant dry - from losing it into the cylinders and not paying attention to the temp gauge (while I was asleep in back). If you saw the body on this truck you probably wouldn't be too disappointed, she's got some bad rust and body damage. Oh well...
