    M1028 6.5/4L80e project and questions

    I understand why, only I haven't heard the engine running at the previous owner. First O want to be sure it is functional. The wires are correct and all the other lines etc are functional. After that and some test driving I probably pull it out again. It's not that time consuming or difficult.
