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.

Is the injection pump a big deal on these too? What is normal life?

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.
