new to the 7.3
Hi everybody. For the last two years I have been scouting for a nice used PSTD 7.3and I found one ... exactly what I wanted, a 2000 SD XLT with a 7.3 and only 110,000 miles. The truck is bone stock, no mods of any kind. I got it form the original owner and it appears to have been very well maintained.
I simply do not know where to start. I guess I will head to the local ford dealer to see if the CPS is the one that is correct (the grey one I think?) and the recall done. Then I plan on ordering a spare and another o ring for it. They will ride in the glove box.
Consider me a sponge ... I am interested in learning all I can from you folks and in doing a few improvement mods. I do not plan to chip this truck (auto trans) but just want good mileage. I plan to run biodiesel and perhaps some WVO.
I run WVO in the benz and it runs better on that than it does pump diesel. Lots of folks have spoken highly of the PSTD 7.3 as far as using WVO goes. I hope that is the case.
Looking forward to learning from all of you.
