Is the truck a plow truck? If it is stay away from it, the 7.3 and plows don't mix.<p>Is it auto? The 7.3 and auto don't mix?<p>Is it a 4X4?<p>Do you have maintenance records?<p>Geoff

I'd fear all of what Geoff said+look for blue smoke from tailpipe or take some oil and pay 20 bucks for an analysis.My best friend works in fleet maintaince,and they get tired at 150K with great maint. practices,look for a lot of diesel fuel in the oil on the analysis.Make sure it starts good,might need glow plugs or a controller.Valve cover leaks are common and a pain in the a$s to fix.Sounds like a good work truck-<p>----------<br>John D<br>

Please forgive my partner. He was with me watching Wrestlemania and he had a few.<p>What he is trying to say is that we bought a 1988 F-250 Custom 4X4 two weeks ago. It has around 101,000 on the odo. Runs like a champ! Pulls anything hooked to it with no problem. We both wish it was a diesel because we're getting close to ten MPG with it. Other than the gas use it is a perfect work truck!
