1996 Fsuperduty

my neighbor has a 96 Fsuperduty he wants to sell the gvwr is 15500 and the engine says 7.3 turbo nowhere does it say powerstroke so I am assuming they were using up the 7.3 non powerstroke engines in these heavy duty trucks, does that sound right? if i needed parts for the motor is that the engine family I would get them for? its a manual tranny do you guys know which model it would be? any info on this truck you guys could give me would be appreciated.

If it is a Ford with a 7.3 from 94.5 and up till 03.5, it is a powerstroke unless the engine has been swapped out.

Whoops, sorry about that, I was looking at the wrong weight ratings. 15k would be a commercial 1-ton or greater, so 450 would be about right. Though any drivetrain parts can come from the OBS powerstrokes.

sounds like the engine and trans have been changed...if it's a powerstroke it will have a hpop with rubber or braided lines (2) running to the heads. If it's a 7.3 turbo indirect injected engine...it will have an injection pump where the hpop would be and it will have 8 metal lines running to external injectors mounted near the valve covers. I worked for a brick mason years ago that had an 89' f-450 superduty...it had a regular 5 speed as well as i remember...no granny.

well I brought it home this afternoon, it has a loud popping noise coming out of the intake, I'm hopeing this is the problem.

Violent Popping Sound and Air Exiting the Intake


mine is doing the exact same thing. I ended up paying $1000 for the truck so I dont think I'll get hurt even if I need to have the heads done.
