Found a B2 for $700. Guy says it needs a throw out bearing. Should this be a deal breaker. The truck is 50 miles away and I don't want to waste time or money going ro look at it. From the pics it's in decent shape.

If it needs a throw out, that could stop you quick, fast, and in a hurry from driving 50 miles.

Basically you need to install a clutch ( no reason not to install it all once you have the tranny out )and who knows about the MC as well.

I just had my clutch done in mine(due to lack of garage and tranny jack). Cost me 700 dollars total if you can do it yourself you can get everything you need(plates, throwout, internal slave) for 215 bucks.
