You must've paid them guys real good -- I wouldn't do that much work for a relative!
I could see the weight of that big diesel flexing the hoist as he was lowering it to the floor -- that's a big chunk of iron!! Makes a 350 look like a lawnmower engine!
Don't you love Ford oil pans? Your now the 5th person I know that has had to replace one. They don't last long after a few salt baths. They go even faster if you plow, then park it for the summer.
You bought a used car, sight unseen, over the internet, without getting it checked out by a 3rd party?
3rd parties cost money, & you can't be sure that they aren't getting their palms greased from 1000 miles away either -- or if they even know what their doing. Sellers are SUPPOSED
to be honest on Ebay -- this one wasn't & he got the appropriate feedback. Like I said before ... if the Carfax report was up & running I never would have bought it. I went against 2 instincts that I used to never violate: #1 I bought from a used car dealer, & #2 I bought based on looks. But what's done is done. The wife is driving it right this second & it's in better condition than any used one is right now.
