To buy, or not to buy
Hey all! Here's my story, looking at a 94 F-350 XL 7.3 4-spd Dually for sale that has a small amount of white smoke (maybe I'm colorblind and there's some blue in it) at idle and LOTS when it's revved up. Seems to run good, and the lady selling it says she was told it needs a turbo because it's leaking oil into the intake. It didn't look like anyone actually took off the turbo recently, and she isn't too keen on me digging to deep into it before I buy.
Questions I have to you guys (because I'm more familiar with the newer 6.0's):
1) anything about 94's I should stay away from if I can easily spot it
2) would it reliably haul a 12,000lbs total weight trailer uphill 6,000-10,000 ft above sea level (her hitch is rated to 10,000lbs so I can't test run) and added weight of steel flatbed
3) does the fact she's been using B20 bio for awhile cause probs (sticky injectors?)
4) are there any mods as far as chips, exaust brakes (even using the EBPV),
etc, that are RELIABLE as this would be a daily work truck with the trailer?
Thanks for any help! DJ (not THAT DJ!)
