New to Powerstoke diesel trucks
Merry Christmas. I'm very new to diesel trucks; I've been around stationary diesels some. I recently got a '96 F 250 extended cab 4 x 4 with a 7.3 liter turbo diesel with 296,000 miles. The truck has been excellently maintained, except for the body, by its previous owner,a crane company.
My last recreational vehicle was a '83 911 Porsche, which I sold two years ago. What do I need to know about driving this monster (compared to the 911) ? Shift points? Can I lug it? It's so powerful that I seem to be able to drive it in almost any gear here in boonies of central Virginia. Also it seems to start all of the time. I saw some pointers on maintenance on one of the other forums here at the powerstroke forum. A great site.
I'm a retired TIG welder, woodworker, woodturner, submariner, and my wife and I raise orchids in our greenhouse. I love my truck !!
