If you go for the classic change the timing belt on the duetz engine if it hasn't been done. Personally, I'd go for the classic II. It's all copper and the same as a SA250...jyst in a smaller case. That Perkins will rattle every bolt loose on your truck...lol

Re: classic II or sa250D????

Depends on what you want to do with it...I've got a SA thats a great machine fires up in the middle of winter no problem...have a classic III,I like as well I know it isnt same machine but has alot smaller footprint then the SA makes it a little easier for mounting and space purposes...I would probably go with the Classic just from a size comparison

Look at it and guess-stimate if the meter has already gone around.

There was one here in town that had gone over 2x.

But hell $2500 isn't a ton of $$$ for a real welding machine that runs and welds.

Re: classic II or sa250D????

I gave 4500 for my Classic II with 5200 hrs.... As long as it has been maintaned well ..,2500 is a great deal. Like I said, if the timing belt hasn't been changed...DO IT !! Foley Engines has the kits. Easy to do on a Lincoln if it is not in a truck.... Why Duetz went with a belt...who knows... but if it breaks your valves will hit the pistons.
