What to look for on 1995 F350 XLT

I currently own a 96, F250, auto, extended cab with 7.3 It has about 215k miles and runs strong, but I need a crewcab. I will be looking at a 1995, F350 XLT, SRW in the morning with 260k miles with auto trans. The pictures look good, clean body and interior.

Are there any key differences between a 95 and 96 engine ? What specific items should I look for on the 95 as a prebuy drive and inspection in the am. Thx.

thats mine back off! lol JK, i think i was eyeing that truck, if its the same one...

as far as purchasing goes, there is no difference. mechanically, the radiator and hpop are a bitt different, thats about it.

just be sure to check all your pulleys, turbo compressor wheel for damage, and turn the oil fill cap upside down on the fill hole to doa basic compression tests. look at the color of the tranny fluid, and check the dipstick for dis-colored oil.
