7.3 knock

Well I went to start my 550 at the mine the other day to come home and it started great.Idled great but when i went to rev it up it would die around 13 hundred to 15hundred rpm.It did this a couple time and then it reved up fine for awhile.It died once more and when i got it started it developed quite a loud knock.Now I dont know if it got a bad injector or what but needless to say I am now in the market for a good used 7.3 powerstroke.Before i get a bunch of why dont you just fix it,well its like this.Towjob from minesite to town,between 6 and 8 hundred bucks.No mechanics in watson that i would let work on it which would mean a 1500 dollar tow bill to whitehores which is 300 miles north.Then all the labour to tear it down and diagnose it.I am probably looking at another thousand or 1500 min. So I am just going to by a good used engine and be done with it.
