Purchased in late Nobember a 1997 Ford F-250 tire service truck with a hydraulic lift gate from where I work .
It was used in a rail yard to service semi trailer chassis
An ECM (computer ) , spark plugs ,plug wires , EGR solenoid , multiple vacuum hoses and coolant temp sensor later it was running .
Also replaced both bent hood hinges .
Nabbed everything but the plugs ( had some ) from pick - n - pull junkyard for $41

The day after Christmas we had a warm 55 degree day after a 25 degree start .
Got the Earl Scheib paint gun out ,
A gallon of black Rustoleum and a gallon of acetone both disappeared that afternoon
