Look at what I found on craigslist

I saw an ad, for a 7.3 non-turbo motor. The guy said there had been a problem with the #8 cylinder losing compression, but that was about it. Since the price was right, I figured I could pick it up and use it for some extra parts. It came with the IP, injector lines, new GP's and what I guess to be the flex plate.

If nothing else, I'll have a spare crank, heads, oil cooler, oil pan, intake, injector lines and an IP that can be used as a core. He even threw in a generator for the same price as the motor.... FREE!

Good deal! CL has turned into a gold mine lately, what with this economy. I picked up a small gas generator (smaller than the one you got) that needed fresh gas and the brushes cleaned for $25 a few weeks ago. Twenty five bucks!

Nice score Gary, the generator should work with the new trailer. Just get a really long extension cord, I had one just like it and it was pretty loud.
