Dual Mass flywheel or not?

My clutch just went out in my 2000 F250 Powerstroke. I called the local ford dealership to get some info and prices on parts. My dealer says that my truck has a solid flywheel. He didn't ask for a vin# just model and year. But all the web sites I've seen looking at for parts have conversion kits to go from dual mass to solid flywheel. I'm wondering if there is any way to know for sure before removing the transmission if it's solid or dual mass?

Thanks, I'm almost positive mine is solid as well. I've looked at the south bend and the luk replacements. Both of those look good. Has anyone had any experience with VALAIR clutches? Good? Bad? Other?

Overall i sell more Valair clutches then SB... super good quality and a lot cheaper than going with a SB clutch.... yours is a single mass flywheel.... if your not going to buy a new flywheel have it resurfaced so that it mates correctly to the new clutch
