Purchase Decision Need Advice
I need some advice on buying van I am looking at.
This would be my first diesel
It is a 95 E350 RB 12 Passenger with a 7.3TD
Seller states it has 215,000 miles, local ford dealer rebuilt engine and transmission and replaced turbo about 8k miles ago.
No accidents, no leaks, good front and rear AC, new tires, new heater coil, new brakes, tow package, pretty clean interior with captain chairs and rear bench that folds into a bed.
I have not seen the receipts yet but he has them for all work done with dealer. I am in Fresno and the van is in Los Angeles. I have been reading for days about the PSD's and finding a passenger van with one is pretty difficult.
I will be doing a 4x4 conversion and be towing a 30 foot light weight trailer, possibly a Sportsmobile Camper top, small galley, etc. BioDiesel VeggieStroke are all possible with this.
I have done plenty of engine swaps, lifts, major mechanical on all my older cars so I am pretty good with a wrench but a diesels are all new to me
Trying to get as much info as I can before I drive down there. I don't want to make the drive for nothing
Any advise is appreciated,
