Hope that thing never had a crank failure, you'd probably find those welds holding the crank together lol. That does suck though man, I'm sure you spent good money for supposedly a good truck. Glad you're gettin it worked out.

You forgot the excellent electrical work none of which did any justice for the fuse panel inside the for which we forgot to take pics of.



And still found a way to have oil leaks

They are bolted. It looks like at some point this truck was lifted in front and instead of getting new shocks the mounts were made longer.

No one to blame for this stuff but myself, buyer beware I guess. I am just fortunate that I have the necessary knowledge and/or income to get it all the way it should be.

Hell of a guy op. I'm the same way, buy a used truck be prepared to fix and change things. Just a good mind set to have so tempers aren't overloaded on either end.

Best of luck on the fixes and from what I've seen the trucks in excellent hands.

Trans should be done soon. I have to say that Evan is a hell of a guy. He called last night at 1015 to check with me on a couple items. First was a stripped valve body bolt, he wanted to make sure I was cool with him putting a non g solenoid valve body in the trans and just leaving the solenoid tied off in the pan. Didn't want me to freak out when I drop the pan some day and find this sitting there. Then had a big talk about a pan bolt that was missing. Turned out the bolt was stripped and just left out. No big deal, it didn't leak, he just doesn't want to let anything be a surprise.

Getting closer.

Replaced that "drain plug" abortion

I only understand about 10% of the things said here, just wanted to say its awesome to see you having a positive attitude about it with all this BS going on. I would not be reacting quite so well. Best of luck getting that thing ripping

Evan can make a really bad day into a great time. Finding that competent person that you can trust in the wake of taking a bad beating is priceless. Not all mechanics are sleezeballs, although the horror stories keeping multiplying every week it seems. There's several shops represented on this forum that have been screwed over and over again, and kept a positive attitude, passed it on to the customer, and that's why they are still in business today.
