Smile Colorado newbie

Looking to learn and gather info on diesels, particularly the 1st gen, '83-'87 IDI. I know, it's not a PSD, but I really like the all mechanical aspect of them. When I get the funds and find one, it'll become our family's recreational/utility vehicle.

welcome aboard, im in foco myself,

ive thought about getting one of those old IDI for my Bronco when funds come available/when my 5.0 dies, I see them pop up on Craigslist all the time. not a powerful motor but a reliable motor to my understanding.

the nice thing with the 80-87 is ford gave you the outlines to trim the fenders to install bigger tires
