i dont recall exact links. but there are a few places (here too i think) that have a range of serials that had forged and a range of serials with PMR's (Powered Metal Rods). i think dieselpowermag has them somewhere as well. but their search feature is worthless.
DMAX injector issues are limited mostly to the LB7 (01-04.5). as for PSD as long as the rig has been cared for injectors should be fine. they can wear out though. but if good oil was put the truck on schedule then they should be ok. if you know anyone that has the AutoEnginuty software with Ford Package, they can do an injector buzz test and CCT (Cylinder Contribution Test) i dont have the software. but that will tell a bit about injectors. many people go 300k + on the same set of injectors, or only changing a couple. our injectors are hydraulic, they use the motor oil as fluid.
some 01, and all 02-03 PSD's will have PMR's.
i dont know of any solid trucks for sale in the area, but i usually keep my eye on craigslist. since your close i know the weather your in. if possible, i would prefer shopping for a diesel when the truck is cold soaked. the colder the better. it gives yo an idea of the conditions of the glow plugs, batteries, glow relay, injectors, and compression. if the glows or relay are out then youll have trouble. but if they are good and still has trouble then there could be issue elsewhere.
