its a idi right?

hi im new to this forum and as my name implies im not much of a ford guy. i also know nothing about diesels. however im looking at getting a truck from my uncle to pull my trailer/camper.
the truck im looking at:
1994 f350
2 wheel drive
dually
crew cab
5 speed manual trans
IT HAS BADGES ON THE FENDERS THAT SAY "TURBO DIESEL"
nowhere does it say powerstroke
however i heard that the majority of 94's with manual trans had the powerstroke. the 8th digit of the vin is an "F", which in my searches made me think it was a powerstroke, i thought that an idi turbo had the 8 vin "K" or am i backwards?
(cliffnotes: if the 8th digit of the vin is a "F" is it a powerstroke or and idi turbo?)

you could call a ford dealership and they could tell you. I don't know off hand though. however, it should say powerstroke if it indeed is one

Do you know enough about diesels to know an injection pump if you see one?

Powerstrokes won't have an injection pump.

On an IDI you can see the injector lines.
