1995 F350 PSD project

Well the story goes that I found a PSD for 1500 bucks in the local classifieds. It didnt run but for an F350 5speed 1000 was well worth it. So I bought it. Well drug her home and got her running. The idea was parts truck. Well with only 164000 on the ticker it didnt seem right to tear down. So the plan became to replace my fathers truck as its almost 300000 miles and shows every bit of it. Well seeing as how his is still kicking just fine the new plan is to just restore this one for fun. Its not gonna be a nut and bolt job but bed off/cab off restoration job. So here is the thread and now for pictures of how its gone so far

Sittin in the guys backyard the day i bought her

The red bench that got sold soon after i bought it

the bed is rough

needs put back together

takin her home!!

trying to get it to start

just the motor

the clean front end

drivers side

passenger side

yeah its correct

this was clogged by RTV

I painted the wheels and hubs

the best shot of the truck i have after i painted it up


the idea is a stock restore. With the usual gauges, exhaust, and intake. Feel free to tell me what ya think and which way you guys would go. Im open to ideas. But above all. Enjoy!
