Opinions before purchasing . . .
Test drove a 1997 F-250, CCSB, 7.3L, Auto, 2WD, 284k miles today and want some input. A wire to one of the glow plugs was severed. It had an aftermarket air filter and exhaust but no chip or tuner. No smoke or visible engine leaks. I have a feeling the A/C leaks because there was green on the top a/c line. Also had new fuel filter housing, alternator and power steering pump. Truck started and ran good other than a bit of pulling in the front end. This is my first experience with these trucks so I am hoping to gain some insight from more experienced people. Should I be concerned about any of the above problems to the point of not purchasing? Thanks for any input! Asking price of 7k
