New Guy In Texas

Originally from Georgia stationed in Texas with the military. Just picked up my first diesel. 1995 4wd 7.3L with 5spd. 169k on the clock. Overall very straight truck, but once I started digging into it I noticed alot of maintenance wasnt kept up with, so now I'm in the process of fixing alot of thing, and figuring out all the new diesel stuff. Fluids was a big, looked like at least 2-3 years since changed. Tranny tends to pop out of reverse occassionally. Big probs I'm trying to fix first are the HPOP lines leaking, the fuel bowl drain valve leaking, and the front fuel tank issue. I can run all day in the city on the front tank but the second I step on the highway or cruising over 50-60 it stalls out like its robbed for fuel. Only the front though, rear works just fine.

Oh well, looking forward to my new project, as I know once I get the issues fixed this ole truck has alot of life left in her.
