What to look for (couple of questions)

Going to look at a truck this weekend. 95 F350 7.3. The guy is putting new glow plugs in it so thats a check. New brakes, Clutch, brake lines ball joints and tires. Its a 5 speed transmission. Are these transmissions pretty good? I can imagine its no nv 4500 but are they better or worse then an auto. What kind of things should a newbie look for? Im a mechanic by trade but have never done much with the 7.3's. Thanks in advance!

Lots of great info.

And the ZF5s are pretty dang tough. Depending on the year it might have a PTO on it as well. My 1994.5 had one on its manual transmission
