Can't find ebayer

Buy it, sell it, negotiate, haggle, drag it out from under the workbench or behind the garage and make it someone else's problem!

Can't find ebayer

#1

Post by Shagbark » 12 years ago

Does anyone know the name or have a link to the company in Florida that sells the used, imported, diesel 720 engine/transmissions. I've seen them on ebay 50-times but, looked for them tonight and found nothing. I found a slick little 720 (85 / MT) with a bad engine that I may pick up if I can get one of these engine/transmissions to Oklahoma without loosing an arm or leg in the process. I think they were about $800-$900 FOB. Buying an original 720 diesel isn't really an option in this part of the world. There just aren't any to be had that I can find. There are about 500,000,000 Cummins, Powerstrokes, and Duramaxes, but no compacts. Even my diesel Maxima wasn't sold here. I bought it from a lady who moved here from California. Help is always appreciated and usually needed by me :wink: .

exportintl. I advise that you read the feedback for, say, 01-Mar-07 and 27-Sep-05. AJ has a 4% negative feedback rating, which is pretty high. I esp. don't like his boilerplate engine condition descriptions. He has NO IDEA of the actual mileage of these engines, and I doubt that he even runs them at all. I covered some of this in this post.

If you buy an engine from him, do keep us informed about the deal.

I see what you mean. I wouldn't even pay $200 for an engine from this guy, if all I had was his word that it was a runner. I think you could get a real good engine or a real bad one from him. Buy the time you got it shipped, you'd have over $1000 in it. I don't have that kind of money to risk with this goober. :roll:
