Question Buying first diesel

Hi im looking at buying my first diesel and have a couple questions. There are two trucks Im lookin at. The first is a 92' F350 CC DRW 2WD 7.3idi non-turbo 5 speed manual with 180,000 mi. The truck is in great condition. No rust to mention. How many miles will/can these engines last?What kind of mpg's can I expect. The asking price is $3500. The next is a 95' F350 CC SRW 4WD 7.3L PSD auto tranny with 252,000 mi. Body has a little rust around the wells but looks to be in over all good condition. The owner says the engine is missin out abit and beleives it to be an injector. What kind of mpg's and over-all mileage can expect for this one. The asking price on this one is $3000. Just wondering what ya'll thought on wich one would be a better buy. I would like a truck with plenty of power and alot of fun to drive but I also want reliability.
