    Advice needed

    Hello everyone I have a chance to buy a Lincoln ranger 8 that has 810 hours with the Onan engine for 250$ but the seller said the charging stator is burned out and it needs a new PC board. I just want to know if it's worth to buy and fix?

    I see listings on Craigslist like that. I always avoid them.

    I like when they say easy fix, $10 part. Yeah right.

    It's obvious your a pro.......Go get a new rig with as nice shiney warranty and get to work.
    That's likely just another Craigslust dirtbag with no bank account or credit card trying to get some meth money. Craigs is for those who can't qualify at Ebay.....or anywhere else
    . You're down around Houma ? You know the Jennings boys ? They had a double handful of SA200's around last time I was there..about 15 years ago. Look'em up if you know them. They'll know where to get you a decent genset at a good price

    I already have my rig, I just have a hobby fixing up machines, the one time I bought something on Craigslist was a ln-25 for 350, that was a good deal to me, but that's rare on that site usually nothing but scams on there. I wouldn't buy just anything unless I know exactly what I got, or some know how to fix it. I found the ranger for sale on Facebook market place, I've had good success on face book but still you got to watch out. The seller looks young probably not much know how to fix things. There pictures of it it doesn't look bad, but he had the flywheel off and a pic of the rotor. Maybe he thinks it's too much to fix or maybe there's more problems. I'm about three hours from Houma.
