I have the worst luck

Well, last night I went to pick up my new to me 1997 f350 psd. The prevois owner has done a lot of recent work, including replacing the fuel lines from the tank to the motor. Well after getting the plow in the bed, and getting on the highway home, I made it all of 5 miles from his house when she wouldn't stay running and eventually quit. Nothing like being on 93 south in the cold, on new years eve, with a truck you just bought. We tried a few things to get her going, but it looks like a jammed up fuel filter. ( there is only 1 right, under the powerstoke engine hood? )

So, anyways its a 97 with 120k on it, plow and utlity bed. I will be selling the utlity bed and putting a normal bed back on, the body is in good shape with some minor rust on the front fenders before the door. But for $7k its a good buy.

So I'll be around I lurk in the back a lot, and do a lot of searching, but this is my fist diesel so I will have lots to learn.

Chris
