97 identification help

Im getting a 97 obs but theres a little confusion on what the real series is. On the emblem it just says "F-super duty". Does this mean its higher than a 350? Apparently she was used for some type of fence or metal hauling, shes got a flatbed, duallys and those old four point tow mirrors. If anybody could shed some light on whether its a 350, 450 or 550 that would be greatly appriciated

It's the predecessor to an F450, in the OBS body style they were called F-Super Duties.

So there no difference in the engines between the obs super duty and the lighter 2 and 350? I know there all 7.3's but ive never seen someone mod a 450 or 550. This is my first Diesel

Should be no difference between the engines in the F-SD, F350, and F250 HD. Cheers!

The f-sd has the exact same engine/trans as all f250/350 4x4's minus the t-case, they have a mono beam front axle (not 4x4 but still leaf sprung), 10 lug bolt pattern, Dana 80 rear (disk brakes) and are all cab and chassis models, this is factory things, obviously you can get them in 4x4, with a bed, and other options usually found on the "lighter" trucks
