Going to look at 2002 F350
Hey folks, I am going to have a look at a 2002 f350, the truck was owned by a independent roofer who towed a dump trailer. The truck looks to be in mint condition from the pictures, no rust. I will be using it for towing dump trailers and large enclosed trailers.
The truck has 345k (Kilometres) I know thats getting somewhat high but I figure if it's in good condition I will have a look at it.
I have a good list of stuff to look at such as oil leaks in different places, smoke coming out of oil fill tank, steering issues, brakes.
I'm curious if there is any simple things to look over that will tell me to walk away from the truck or not, I am obviously worried most about a worn out motor. Obviously I can't do a compression check in the guys driveway. I plan on bringing a friend who is a diesel mechanic, powerstroke mainly.
Any info would be great, thanks guys.
