Just common sense, if your buying it to get something hassle free and pay tol dollar,b our your looking to save a buck.

Check for cod start issues = glow plugs
When you go to look at it request that he didn't start it on the day you go and check it out, if he has a problem then theres somthing hes.hiding.

Check for blow by or hiccups & missing,

Look under the dash for any unnecessary wires or rigged up looms

Go thru all the gears manually.
Check under neath for any oil leaks on the front axle

Ive heard to check the oil pans on the 7.3's they rust out and you have to pull the motor or at least jack it up off the mounts and let the oil run out for days to get a good seal on the new pan

good luck!

Front and rear pinion seals. Especially the front almost every Dana 50 I've seen (cold weather, I'm from Canada) has a leaking front pinion seal
