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

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 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

Checked into a new Jasper for it. About 6k. Just doesn't make sense to me. Van is older.

Sold it! (Craigslist--Thanks Richard!) Not quite what I wanted but pretty close and I really like the new owners even though they are friggin' Buckeyes!
Its always hard to sell vans, TM's and equipment. Its never worth what you think it is. :errf:

We often keep things too long just because we can't get what we feel its worth. However once we start feeling the nickle and dime pinch then we trade it in on new. I hate paying either way but if I must pay, it may as well be new.

At least you got close and you can end the chapter on that truck. Good luck with the new Butler! :cool:
