newbie F250 SD owner
just got myself a 1999 F250 4x4, with the 7.3 powerstroke diesel and 6 speed manual. Having been a Landcruiser HDJ80 driver for many years i have finally made the jump to a proper truck! Living in the UK means that fueling it is an expensive ordeal!! but the get up and go of the engine is worth it! puts a smile on my face every time i boot the throttle:-)
The truck has got a superchip tuning module, hi flow intake and a Banks wastegate at the moment, along with a straight through exhaust so it sounds amazing.
i have a couple of questions,
what oils should i use in the engine, gearbox, transfer case and axles?
The clutch feels quite heavy, is that normal?
Any parts on the truck that are prone to problems that i should check?
