1999 f250 7.3l

i am looking at getting 1999/2000 psd. everyone that i talk to says that the only thing is that the head gaskets go on them. i thought that was the 6.0 that does it. also any problems i would face with it. it has 92k on it. it is a 6speed manual.

sorry if i posted this in the wrong section. i would like to know of any common problems

Head gaskets

are the last thing you need to worry about on a 7.3. Its hard to go wrong on one. You just need to make sure when you test drive one it is the first time it has been started for the day. That will tell you alot on how it runs on cold idle. Check for blow by out the oil filler cap when the engine is running and see if you can get any maintanance records.

Ya, the 7.3 is solid as a rock, and 92k is not a lot for one. And that is the time frame for the forged rods on them, just like a bonus hahaha.
