Looks like an excellent donor!

In my opinion, the noisier the motor, the better. They don't cackle with low compression.

Thanks for understanding Nate.

I have taken matters into my hands and gone after trucks that are not for sale. I know what I am after and Thursday could be a very good day....

Anyone have a good source for starter parts and/or rebuild kits? I'm not having much luck with google search.

Edit: This would be for the 5.4 Expedition, not the PSD.

I've found another site where I can get a rebuild kit that includes the solenoid, bendix, brush holder ***’y, bushings and snap rings for $35, but they're on vacation for 2 weeks and the site is shut down for ordering.

My wife wanted a auto because her hip is giving her problems shifting her beetle. Found a 2002 beetle with 60K that is almost perfect shape. Drives and shifts good too. Haven't bought it yet but Monday we just might get the TDI. Wish now I had taken a picture. Unless I have Nate's problem and it gets taken before we get back to it.

Glenn, I wish you the best in the purchase!

As for my luck. I had to make it happen, the jury is still out on the result but it is in the driveway.

Thanks Nate, the guy will meet us tomorrow even though its a holiday here.

Your purchase looks real good and both of them will make you a nice truck!
