Me and a buddy of mine found a beat up 1997 Ram 3500 in a salvage yard, we got the whole truck for $250, complete motor, trans(5 speed), intercooler, etc, etc... We took the whole truck, cut the front end off and gave it back... The rest of the truck was destroyed(It sat for a while, with no windows, after being rolled over)... So the way it works out, got a 913 pump for free... We have the trans sold for $1000 to a buddy of ours, but we can't decide if we should sell the motor or hold onto it and build it, but now we have a bunch of spare parts laying around which is always good... :thumbsup

I like and hate stupid junkyards. Nice find. I seen a 12v go in the junkyard about a year ago, guy said it wouldn't, buy the time I got to the guy to see if I could buy it it had already been scraped. at the top of the pile. It wasn't there 5mins before it got tore up.The body was in preety good shape, think it was a 95.

One more question... I think I want to have the pump gone through and tweaked a little bit before it goes on the truck... Who would you reccomend as a pump shop??? I'm in Wilmington, Delaware 19808... Thanks, Gavin
