Nor Cal Newbie

Hello All!
Just got a "new to me" 2003 F-250 with a 7.3, it's my first diesel! It's got 185k on the clock and I'm having a blast with it!

Thanks for the welcome guys! Sadly to say I don't have picture yet but I'll fix that this weekend! I'm slowly acquiring the parts to address the issues found in the pre-purchase inspection. These included front and rear sway bar bushing, up pipes starting to leak and an oil leak on the back of the engine. My hope is the oil leak is from the turbo pedestal seals and I can change them when I do the up pipes.

My home is between Gridley and Oroville on 70.

Thanks John! So far I do love the truck but work has been crazy busy leaving me little time to play! I did manage to get new sway bar bushings on her and will start collecting the parts to do the up pipes and turbo oil seals.
