I picked this up in Early December. 1995 7.3. 250,000 miles on it, but runs good, and minimal blow by. Less than my 95 even.

Little muddy, but not real rusty.

I ordered new rail plugs, oil cooler set, and random o-rings and seals for it. I also have a weld in dipstick adapter to avoid the whole leaky dipstick thing.

Im going to refresh the seals on it. Not removing the heads, injectors, or timing cover.

This is the motor for the 96 F250

Is it normal for the belt tensioner to "bounce" back and forth while the truck is idling?

I didn't take note if the old one was doing it or not. Brand new ford part.

Fairly Normal. Its because the diesel is somewhat unbalanced.

More progress today.

Got the Rear Hangers, and Shock Mounts on.


Along with most of the radius arm brackets.


Going to try and finish the radius arm brackets tomorrow, and possibly get the coil buckets mounted on.

Belt is a fairly new Napa. About 4,000 miles on it. Looks to still be in good shape.

Seems like maybe it's clicking or knocking a bit as it bounces. Maybe I'll grab a short video of it.

The tensioner may move around a bit. If it's really jumping, check other pulleys like water, vacuum, and PS pump, alternator, and idler pulley. If one of the other pulleys is binding due to bad bearings, the belt can snap back and forth as it overcomes the resistance which would make the tensioner jump around.

Good progress Garrett.

Idler pulleys are brand new ford parts. Steering pump is newer. Vacuum pump spins and "pops" the way it should.

Does it look like anything I should worry about?
