Mechanical Diesels

Mechanical diesels are so easy to diagnose when they don't start. It's glow plugs or no fuel. It's even easier to diagnose when they don't have glow plugs.

You HOPE that's what it is. If it isn't, you're in for expensive work.

Searching :
F-350
1994-1997
DI 7.3 Turbo
Extended or Crew Cab

Manual Transmission
If you are willing to part with yours on the cheap, help a college student out.

No joke. A mute button would be priceless. A couple volume buttons too, one for volume of weight and one for volume of breast tissue.

Swap button would be cool too, when you're done doin the normal way hit swap and it automatically flips her over to....well, you know.
