Smile Happy to be here...

Hi all.
I am Dave, aka ratio411.
I am a hobby mechanic and business owner.
I cut concrete and I (& my employees) work out of a fleet of 95 and up Powerstroke E350 vans.
I stick with the 7.3.
As the owner of a small business, I find myself acting as mechanic.
I usually do well, but am starting to have more advanced issues with my PSDs. The kind that come with age and mileage.
Before even taking the time to post this, I think I have answers to some of my questions. Or at least very good leads anyway...
Thanks much!

As a side, I like Fords in general and like classic cars.
I currently am working on a 72 Ford Maverick with 80k original miles.
The car is solid and very mechanically sound, but the original owner was well aged and lost her peripheral vision... There is not a straight body panel on the car. Sometimes the proverbial "driven by a little old lady" car is not what it's cracked up to be.

Dave

Thumbs up

Thanks guys.

I put a post here for some questions...
95 PSD Van running rough... Doing all I can.

I was wondering if the Auto Xray scanner was any good.
I went ahead and ordered one with hopes that it would help me.
