newbie here. Currently driving an 89 F-150 4.9ltre Reg cab. Just found a nice mid mileage (110,000) 97 Powerstroke. I really wanted the extended cab, always wanted one of mid 90's Diesels, but not really the need for one. But since I have seen several of these, many trashed, or mis- advertised, when I saw this one, I though I would pull the plug and buy it. So subject to inspection, I will pick it up on my next days off. I've never owned a Diesel, but have family who have them. I started life as a tech, and machinist so I have some mechanical aptitude. Should be fun to learn what makes these legendary Powerstrokes tick.
