Looking at a 1978 2290. It has a straight 8 speed transmission also has single engine oil filter with just over 7000 hours. New cab kit completely gone threw the entire air conditioning system. Went and looked at it and the day i went the dealer was closed for a funeral (long story) and they had it parked out behind shop with plate off the bottom of rearend key was in it but i couldn't here it run. So I called them back wanting to go look at it again. Salesman said they were having trouble with 3 point so they fixed it had to go into the valves or pump underneath. He also said they have two shop bills one for $1,440 and one for $4,400 They are asking 12,900 with band duals for it which i think is a little high. I asked if it had ever been overhauled salesman said he didn't think but it had a recently had a turbo installed and I could see the heads had to have been taken off recently. So just wondern if i should stay away and look for sumthing else or what else to look for on this one?
