Now, just gotta find a PSD and get the IDI someone replaced the stock Powerstroke with.

1996 F350 with a 5spd.

Very nice. Shouldn't be too bad to find a PSD or even a cheap parts truck

That is a beautiful truck! I would love to have that configuration. Can't wait to see you swap the PSD in.

yeah shoot...the tires and rims alone are worth at least 1/3 of that. Heck, some would give you a grand for them.

Is the other side in the same good condition? If so, that's awesome.

Can you insert a *slap button* on that guys phone (the person you bought it from) so we can all call him and tell him what a prick he was for switching the motor?

Seriously, can anyone explain to me why in the world you would do that? Is it an IDI with a turbo (I think I worked on a 93 1/2 "pre-Powerstroke" that was a 7.3 IDI but had a Turbo) or is it just a regular IDI non-turbo? Heck, if it's a non-turbo, what's the point? Better off just putting a damn 460 in it.

Did they at least leave the connections and harnesses there for the electronics and so on or do you have to get that too?

I didn't work on too many pre-Powerstrokes back in the day and mainly only messed with the strokes so if I'm missing some things here, you can slap me too. When I worked at the dealership, the veteran guys worked on those older diesels. And I was not going to deny them their fun.

You can have them old IDI diesels. I'll take a stroke any day.

Have fun. I hope you get it all worked out. Just an FYI for ya, I recently missed out on an opportunity to buy an 1995 E-350 extended 15 passenger van with a 7.3 stroke in it (auto trans but the trans had reverse out and recommended not driving it very far since the forward gears would probably soon go out too) and it said $1000 / obo. I'm kicking myself I missed it.

Originally, they were only advertising the motor but then I asked about the whole vehicle and they were basically selling the entire vechicle with the motor. So, if you're wondering what market value is, I can tell you of one recent ad that was pretty reasonable to give you an idea of what to expect. Wish I wouldn't have missed it. Oh well.
