    i bought another f250 last nite
    its a 1994 ford f250 diesel non powerstroke motor not the motor i wanted but it will do
    i wanted a poerstroke but for the price it was not bad

    so its a 94 f250 diesel 4x4 with a 8ft western unimount truck sounds beautiful but it needs a trans and a oil pan and some cosmetic work nothing major
    guy wanted 3grand for it i got him down way down im picking it up tonite cause my friend owns a towing company and he coudlnt get out there to pick it up till tonite but thats ok i will try to get pictures up later on ,tonite or tomorow but im gonna fix it up and use for my second truck or i am gonna use it for a backup truck for plowing and get a couple more parking lots next year and stick someone in it to drive it.:redbounce:sleeping:;)

    nothing wrong with the old IDI non turbo motors, plenty of power for pushing snow.....I just wouldnt heavy haul with it.

    Plenty reliable too. Are you going to pull the engine to do the oil pan?

    You'll want to put a Dana 60 in the front of that thing.

    GET BIGGEST transmission cooler you can find.

    Those idi 7.3L doesn't have turbo so it overheat E40D easier.


    They pretty tough expect E40D just put bigger transmission cooler.

    Yes just get BIGGEST ONE you can find. Stack fin radiator is best for cooler. You could add electric fan and switch ON when temp gauge go up. Like that cooler is best. http://www.timskelton.com/lightning/race_prep/reliability/images/sd_cooler_installed.jpg

    It worth investment by have Temp gauge on transmission.

    I have a tru cool max in my Bronco, about the only thing you could get better would be a 6.0 diesel tranny cooler.

    I think I paid $130ish shipped off ebay
