    94-98 7.3L General Powerstroke Discussion
    Hi all, In my search for a good OBS 7.3l I've found one that's in great shape, just a little overpriced. The dealer says the previous owner had a new trans installed and has the receipts/invoice as documentation. I don't know what the materials & labor costs are for this, but for example...
