Buying 1999 7.3, need info on major issues to look for.

As the title states I am buying a 1999 7.3 with 86000 miles on it. I have a decent amount of diesel experience but all with cummins. I need any and all information you can give me on major problems with these trucks. Also it is a manual. Thank you.

Injection pumps aren't common problems for these trucks (easy to get to if it does go bad tho... electric pump in the frame). You will want to keep a cam sensor in the glove box.
