Depends on the life it lived before.
IDI or turbo?
I've an IDI.
Once all systems are in good shape (starting, fuel) there isn't much to go wrong that's diesel specific.
But for a shade tree mechanic with big hands I found changing the gloplugs a pain. But then it's only the second time in 180K.
But on the bright side I've got an '88 E350 Maxivan with a custom raised roof that got about 15 to 16 mpg's over it's lifetime. And hauled a family of 5 ALL OVER in comfort w/ plenty of space.
And get's used to pickup 4x8 sheets of plywood with the custom bench seats folded down.
