    I once bought a 6.9 that ran great! Before it sat...well turns out it was hydrolocked.

    Think I'll pull the heads off the 400m for a valve job and call it good for now. While I'm tearing into it throw a clutch in it too. I'll keep looking for a donor truck since this is supposed to be a future project....lol
