hello new guy here from the UK

hello all
just recently bought myself a truck ,
its a 2002 7.3 psd
57000 miles so not even run in yet ,

its the first lhd truck i have owned and also the first auto i have owned so getting used to it over here may take a while ,
biggest thing on the road over here so people will move haha

just need to do a few things to make it my own like remove some tacky lights etc and a leveling kit of some kind not sure which to get ?

and a few probs to sort out hopefully i will find the answers to those on here though
random stalling when driving along
and an oil leak oil in the v between the heads

Welcome to the org.!

I just happen to know a couple of real nice guys on your side of the pond that can probably help you. Oil (sure it isn't fuel?) can be coming from high pressure pump, connections, etc. Not always a big problem. If it is fuel, check around the yellow lever on the back of the fuel bowl.

Contact one of these guys. I bet they will be able to help you.

Jul has had a 7.3 and spends his time with fabrication of logging/tractor equipment.

Mikers has a shop and parts store.
