Yeah, the fuel in the oil is due to failed or incomplete Regen processes. In the even the truck goes into regen and is turned off before it completes. The excess fuel that was injected on the exhaust stroke will drain to the oil pan when the rings cool down.
Not a problem if your deleted.
I would get the VIN number and try to obtain the various oasis, carfax and any other reports you can find. Make sure all the TSB's have been addressed.
As Jarrod mentioned, the Job 1's had a radiator issue in the beginning. Since that truck has as many miles as you say, it was probably addressed a while ago if it had one of those radiators. They have since upgraded the radiators and applied a TSB to help prevent it splitting on other trucks.
These trucks don't like Bio or Water in the fuel, so watch what fueling stations you use. Unlike the 7.3's and 6.0's that would run on bad fuel, the HPFP in these 6.4's and even the 6.7's will be damaged with too much Bio or water in the fuel. There have been a number of reports of users being denied warranty when that happens.
You'll have to be more stringent in regards to the routine maintenance, watch your fluid levels and pay attention to the fuel you use. Otherwise, as mentioned by Jarrod. these engines are great. Both the engine and trans can take allot of abuse as daily drivers.
If you plan on using the HP the tuner makes, pay attention to your trans at that seems to be the weak link. But if your using it as a daily driver and towing vehicle you won't have to worry. Watch what tune levels and what your EGT's are when towing. The higher tunes disable allot of the safety measures in the stock Ford tuning, so it's up to the user/owner to pay attention to what the trucks doing.
