naturally-aspriated 1994 PSD

have a line on a '94 F250 non-turbo PSD

any comments on this powerplant? I'm not planning to hotrod the truck, just looking for a HD vehicle for hauling gear and towing my 6000# boat/trailer

the 7.3's are good trucks, very reliable. i'd get a newer turbo diesel truck though if you tow alot.

was wondering why the price was so good ($3K); thought it was the utility body that was keeping the price that low

I don't need to go fast, but pulling a 6000# boat/trailer up a steep saltwater ramp requires torque and weight

heck, I'm used to driving slow...my DD is a 3L 1985 Mercedes turbodiesel wagon w/240K on the odo

confused

would this be the IH engine then? why is the seller advertising this as a '94

did Ford introduce the PSD in late 94?

really wanted a PSD but if the 7.3L non-PSD is sturdy than that's cool
