Late first/Early second generation Dodge/Cummins should be doable in your price range.

Keep in mind Ben that I am trying to convert what I would pay in Canuck bucks to real money.

Reman. Starter - $250 and up
Reman. Alternator - $250 and up
Complete clutch - $300 and up
Rotor - $85
Front pads - $45
Rear drum - $85
Rear shoes - $75
Wix oil filter - $6
Wix air filter - $25
Wix fuel filter - $16
Injectors - $85
Modine Radiator - $400
Water pump - $50

My family has a heavy duty truck shop and one of the shop trucks is a bombed 94/5spd with over 650,000 KM on it. Engine has never been open, same for transmission. I would consider anything over 200K WITHOUT thorough maintenance records as suspect.
