That aint too bad. It sounds like you got most of the isues that usually spring up with higher mileage already done.

No smoke, normal 7.3 blowby, starts right up. The PO just had the water pump and front end redone, new shocks, balljoints, inner outer tie rods, brakes and rotors. I'm going to check wheel bearings soon. I put a new power steering pump and new lines in. I'm thinking about a redhead steering gear but I can't really justify that right now. I drained and filled rear diff and TC. Put in new U joints and carrier bearing. Resealed oil cooler. New XDP gear reduction starter. It was never chipped so I'm thinking she MAY have some miles left on her.

That is a damn nice looking 7.3. I am currently debating on getting rid of my old 6.5 TD and trying out a 7.3 for my run around the farm and hunting truck. I would be too scared to scratch one in the shape of this one........keep the pictures coming.

Put in a new headliner today. I have a Mishimoto radiator on the way it should be here Thursday. I found a nice surprise of RTV holding on the degas bottle nipple on the radiator.

You did really well putting the headliner in. They are a bitch usually.

It was a bitch. Took me about 8 hours. It needed a bunch of trimming and adjusting. But she went in. Now I'm waiting on new sun visors. I'm really not in a huge hurry though. Thats what sunglasses are for
