Ok I know this is a plow truck but it will be used for landscaping too. I recently picked up a 1993 Ford F350 4x4 with a 7.3L Diesel and a manual tranny. The truck had a 9.2 boss v plow on it and has had a plow for a good portion of its life. The truck was well maintained but has a lot of rust due to having a bed salter for its whole life. What are some thing I should check for and replace? Two more questions. My steering has a little play in it and the drivers side wheel seems to be at a little tilt. Could this be the ball joints going out? The truck starts hard even when it warm. I put a new fuel filter on it because it was running sluggish and that helped that but now im thinking either I got air in the lines or the pump needs replaced?
