new guy, first diesel

Well I finally decided to sign up after lurking for a month or so because I finally have a problem that I need some help with, haha.

It all started with the fact that I needed a work truck and my f150 just wasn't cutting it anymore. I ended picking up a big ugly 97 single cab long bed f350 7.3and am loving it so far. The body is rather rough, but I'm mostly looking to make it as mechanically sound as posiable. At this point I have replaced both batteries and the alternator and am working on getting the trailer brakes hooked up and working.

I used to moderate on f150 forum and that is the biggest reason why I signed up here because y'all look like a great bunch of people and fairly easy to get allong with, haha
