    Sweet find Mommakatja. That looks like my dads diesel without the blue stripe. Hopefully it is an easy rebuild for you guys.

    Yep mammak, we have a 94 just like it,7.3 diesel but we ccan't get it started. We've tried a couple of things but no luck yet. Next is the ignition cause it keeps turning over but never kicks over, if that makes sense. ... it's a beast of a truck!

    Doesn't sound like your battery is dead, if it's actually turning over. Have y'all checked the starter and fly wheel?

    Nice finds, MammaK! I'm jealous. :P

    As some of y'all know, I took advantage of the amazing weather this weekend and bought a saddle at the Magnolia auction on Saturday and put it on Henny(his first time EVER with a saddle!) on Sunday. He did just amazingly. I was so giddy while working him I could hardly stand it. I'm sure he and Enoch got tired of me screaming, "OH MY GOD YOU'RE SO CUTE" and "OMG YOU'RE DOING SO GOOD".

    The saddle is an old 15-16" roping saddle. Semi-QH bars I think. That's one thing they never tell you in an auction, the gullet size. Which is one of the most important things, you would think. Anyways, it needs just a bit of work. It looks like it had a roughout seat on it that someone ripped out, so I'm going to have my mom reupholster it. It also needs reflocked and a bit of TLC, but it's a great buy for just $170.

    Yep kay, we've replaced the starter cylanoid and that's when it started just spinning instead of kicking over.

    So it was starting before you replaced the starter? We had issues finding the right starter whenever my dad had his engine replaced. His engine died in his '99 F-150 after just 80K miles because he let the oil run out. =.=

    No, we have not replaced the starter only the cylanoid and a few different sensors.

    Kay I love the pictures!!!!! He looks great under saddle. So glad y'all had a good first experience. Tons and tons and tons of ground work under saddle now. He'll do fine. :) Great find on the saddle too. Does it show a brand anywhere?

    Yea, this truck is a '93 F250 7.3L diesel with turbo (important word that last one) so it should haul my crew just fine. It's 4 wheel drive and stick so I'm going to have fun! We will need to add the gooseneck hitch setup but hubby has a plasma cutter, welder and all the trimmings so I'm not worried about that. Oh my gosh it's a killer seeing it out there and not being able to drive it! LOL!

    KC, sounds to me your issues are fuel related. If it's cranking but not turning over and your starter is good, then it may not be getting the fuel it needs. Maybe the fuel pump is bad? Oh and check your glow plugs. Even one bad glow plug can keep your truck from starting.

    Luvs I have a few horses for sale to good homes and I do take payments. Hint hint
    I could easily have sold two the other day but am leary of the treatment the buyers give their horses. Shalom

    When it turns over, is it just a click? Or does the truck have that grinding sound but just won't start? If it's just a click then the starter may be the issue. If the truck actually tries to start but the engine doesn't kick up, then it could be a fuel issue like MammaK said. And lately, our truck would grind and grind and not start because of an air lock in the fuel tank. We opened up the gas cap, jumped the truck, and had no problem after that.

    MammaK, there is a brand on it, but it's not a well known one. It was made in Texas somewhere, I can't remember the name right now. It's like a shop made saddle, not factory made I think.
