1989 F700 IDI 7.3
Currently I'm looking at a 26' U haul Ford F700 with an International 7.3L N/A motor in it, backed by a 5 spd spicer. I'm going to load my Jeep in the back of it and haul it around.
Can anyone give me some tips and tricks as to what I need to be looking at to make sure it's a healthy 7.3? It's got 230K miles on it and runs and drives I'm told. I know I'll not win any races with it, but if I can do 60 MPH on the flat ground with it I'd be happy, 4.33 gears in the rear end.
I am complete diesel newb, I know the basic parts and what they do, but other than that assume I know nothing. I am very handy with a wrench, just totally new to diesels.
I am not interested in turning up the pump, turboing it, nothing save making it run as it was intended and keeping it reliable.
