Was the 92 7.3 a good truck?

Found a 1992 Ford F-250 7.3l idi international diesel. They want 2 thousand for it. Good buy/Bad buy? 90k miles on it, recent tranny rebuild,new radiator hoses, vacuum pumps, injector lines and seals, injector relay, and voltage regulator. Also has a plow frame, but no plow.

Looks older than a 92 to me. Or at least the front end does.

Thats a 87-91 body style unless someone swapped to the bricknose style.

I would offer $1500 and see what they say. Go to Napa and pick up SCA test strips, go to the dealer, and test the coolant. If it is up to par with SCA's (which is a coolant additive that reduces the risk of cavitation) then have at it. Otherwise I would walk.

I a couple of guys who used there IDI's to haul cattle who got 500,000+ out of them. Some obviously dont last that long. Keep it running right and it will last a long time.
