Long story short, I GOT SCREWED,
I bought this truck and was told it had a good motor so I went ahead and fixed all of the other problems. Replaced all of the brakelines, wheel cyclinders, calipers, rotors, wheel hubs, and an exhaust manifold that was masking a noisey cyclinder.. Total invested including the price of the truck = $5000. Come to find out it has a blown head gasket and it must be really bad because the truck is running horrible.
I have been told the head gasket is really difficult to replace due to the location of the motor and the firewall.. Also told that if I swap the motor to be rebuilt the cab has to be removed. Is it true the cab has to be removed and the headgasket is that much of a PITA?
Should I just dump this truck?
