7.3 odometer

my 97 f350 was to turn 400k ! yesterday, as i watched the numbers creep toward 400.000 miles the odometer reset the milage to 300k . can this be reset, at the dealer? nice the have 100k vanish for resale but i'm sure it will come up , how many miles will these 7.3 go ?? original injectors . glowplugs, starts up at 10 degrees although a little slower

Its just the OBS speedo design, the hundred thousand digit can only make a 1, 2, or 3. On initial key-on, when all the segments appear, the first digit looks like a reversed 6. Maybe Ford didn't plan on these rigs lasting so long... I noticed the same thing years ago when I was driving a 96 PSD oversize escort truck. Even the dealer will scratch their head when they see the milage drop!! A definate thing to know when looking to buy an old Ford with 3xx,xxx on the odometer.
