Wanted to intro myself here real quick. I figure I am probably one of the "few" here with the vehicle I have.
Name is Shea or some call me "M.C." as I am also a D.J. for an internet radio station. I am a cranky old combat vet living down in SW Florida. Don't do much these days except ride our goldwing and fart around with my toys here...not bad for 41yrs old huh? LOL
Anyway, I just snatched up a vehicle my dad has had for many years. It used to be used as a crew vehicle for our auction gallery. It was tasked with towing our 22' box trailer and crew. Before that it was owned by Harley Davidson to pull their show trailer around. I couldn't bear to let it go to a new owner out of our family so I just bought it.
This is a 1998 Ford E-350 Club Wagon passenger van. What is rare about it and one of the main reasons I wanted it, is that getting one with the windows, body kit, AND the diesel engine is not easy to do. Apparantly (and I may be wrong on my intel), they were not a widely sold option.
So, I am hoping to pick the brains of a few members here. I am not mechanically stupid, but I don't have alot of experience with these engines, and I want to make sure she lasts as long as I can get it. Right now it's just over 200K miles and still runs like a champ. Just hoping I fit in here. She's not a truck, or the prettiest lady at the ball. But she will turn a head or two.
