I've tried to reply to your comment in my gallery concerning my 2005 7.3ltr TC Powerstroke F250, however it wont send off from there for some reason (then again I'm a complete novice on there forums, this is the first one I've ever used).
Anyway mate I'll attempt to clear up the confusion.
Although from 2003 Ford stopped putting the 7.3ltr donk into Ford trucks for the US market,
However, Ford Australia continued to have the 7.3ltr Powerstroke made for Australian imported Ford trucks up until the end of 2005.
Ford Australia was having the F250/350s manufactured in right hand drive for the Aussie market in a factory in Brazil.
Therefore mine is indeed a factory made full complience plated 2005 7.3ltr DI Turbo Charged Diesel F250.
Ford Aust for some unexplained reason ceased to have this arrangement continue after November 2005 (mine was on that last shipment, and wasn't registed until Feb 2006).
Because you can't get a factory made right hand drive truck from any of the producers now (Ford, Chev, Dodge etc) these vehicles fetch more money second hand than what their new price was; there aren't that many of them out here in Aussie and they are still in big demand.
They are a magnificent truck and an equally magnificent engine.
I hope this clears up the confusion mate.
