Dang, my GMC 3500 engine died, but the Butler unit runs beautifully. All parts for sale.

    When you get a chance tell me (us) how many miles and hours.

    Any pics would be helpful too and I might know people interested in it all.

    Thanks

    Uh, when have I not followed through on buying something, pops? I think your oxygen hose is kinked again..

    You state side guys just don't understand the cost of shipping something here.. We need to get it to the west-coast, then get out the KY and lube it up...

    I dropped a Jasper engine into my 2005 Butler last year for $6 grand

    I'd strongly recommend investing in an engine... you can keep her running for another few years or sell it for better than salvage

    Butler ain't giving you more than a couple grand for the stuff

    Their reconditioned units are incredible , most of your unit would be considered scrap to them

    Yeah, Butler didn't offer enough so.....

    2004 GMC van with 2008 Hi Heat Butler with all 3 options plus 210 gallon waste tank. 7300 hours on unit. Unit works fine but the truck engine died so we are shelling out the big bucks for a new one but want to sell this to someone who can get this beauty going again.

    First $7500 takes it. Or make offer. Yes, I can dicker.

    If no one wants it within a few days we are going to part it out so please act quickly.

    I propose a "Flash Sale" first Mexican from Kansas gets it! :shifty:

    Put in on the Craigslist in the major towns in your state. Its a great deal for someone to invest in. I'd throw a new tranny in there too and have years of easy cleaning! :cool:

    transmission is 2 years old! Good suggestion on the Craiglist, thanks, Richard.

    Just placed 9 Craigslist ads around my state.

    Great deal for a Butler even with spending on the new motor.

    I still don't understand why you're not getting another crate engine. I know it's an older unit, but it's also a PTO which should have very compatible parts. That van is paid for and your profit margin is probably awesome, due to the fact that you're not paying $12k/year financing.

    If youre just wanting to have a new setup, get your new setup and leave this parked until you can find another engine at a salvage yard.

    I don't get it either, I'd throw a motor in that baby and keep on trucking. If I didn't already have one more van than I need I'd own it
