Hello everybody. Just purchased my first diesel, a '97 F250HD 4x4
supercab/shortbox with 116K miles. I looked a long time before I
found one like I wanted with a 5 speed & relatively low miles. Driving it home from the big city I was very impressed with the torque & fuel mileage, my
old '79 F250 would have used twice as much fuel in it's 429. Of
course it has some issues & I've allready found information on this
forum that has been very helpfull.
I just installed a 4" exhaust system as the stock system was bent in
the rear from backing over a stump or something, it sounds better &
has to flow better.
The truck is getting harder to start the colder it gets, I'm at 4300'
elevation, I'm thinking a glow plug change is in my near future.
