  1. What is This?
    Hi all: I'm new to the diesel & diesel performance world. I recently got a great deal on an old '63 International 1/2T swb pickup and plan to make a killer rat rod diesel project out of it. I went shopping on Craigslist & found a complete running 7.3l motor with 5 speed transmission. Seller...

    Hello everyone!! I'm thinking this could be helpful to people thinking about becoming the proud owner of an OBS powerstroke, who aren't total pro's when it comes to the ins and outs of these engines/trucks. Hopefully this can become a safe place to ask some questions specific to these trucks...

    Hey all. After several years, I am a proud owner of a 96 F250 7.3 4X4 auto. So far has been.. a learning experience. So far the vacuum pump went out on me while I was driving it home, so I have had that fixed. Also ran it out of fuel on accident. The shower thing in the rear tank is busted so...
  6. Engine 911
    When you pull both negative battery cables off the whole truck ground system becomes positive. The current is coming from the #20 fuse in the engine compartment. Pull the fuse power goes away. I read on what the fuse is for and it just leads me to more fuses. #4 #8 #12. Any one have any ideas...

    I recently moved up north into an apartment, and, of course, its going to get cold. Just wondering if anyone had any ideas on ways to keep the truck warm on cold nights. The place has no garage and no exterior plugs that i can use. All ideas welcome, thanks. If it matters, its a 96' f350.

    Hey all, I just bought a 96 F250, it has a (i think) 4" lift kit on it now and I'd like to remove it and get it back to stock height. I know everyone will say just keep the lift, but I'm just not that into lifted trucks and it's hard to get the baby in and out too, haha. So, my question...
