Buying first diesel tomorrow

Hey guys, im going to look at my first diesel tomorrow. Its a 2001 350 srw with 180k. This will be my winter vehicles as my stangs don't get around in the snow too well. now I know the 7.3 is a great motor but I would still bet there are warning signs to look for. So my question is, what are the good/bad signs and what to look for?

Thanks guys!
