Hello from Maine

Great site!!!

I bought my first PSD about 3 weeks ago, been having lots of fun with it.
Its a 94.5 4X4 : 5 spd, F-250 OBS, regular cab with an 8 foot bed and lumber racks.

Its got 178,000 miles engine runs pretty good with no Major problems. I did some of the easier maint stufff.
-changed the oil/filter. flushed the trannie and transfer case.
-changed out the fuel filter and air filter.
-replaced the serpentine belt.
-replaced the front shocks.
-Put on a new water pump.
-put in a new CPS.
-stuffed a bushing in the clutch cylinder linkage. (not sure that I helped it much)????

Its got some rust in the body panels (around the wheels) and a couple dings here and there but for $3200 i'm pretty happy. I hope to run it around maine for a couple years and then run it to Alaska where I spend a lot of time.

This site has been great for getting ideas and information....

It still has the original air box, which I think was recaled on the 94's. I'm looking into the DIY intake, with the big fleet filter.

Probably the only thing bugging me is that the heat is a no go... Kinda sucks when its in the teens!!! I still have to search the site and see if there are any threads on how to get that working.

Thanx for all the info.

Brett

Sold the truck to help pay $1.5M in medical bills! Now I have a F150 6cyl that is slower and gets worse mileage
