Hello I'm in the market for a 7.3 2002 powerstroke. Qnd found a nice looking blue one with new rockers and cab corners. I'm excited and been doing a lot of research on deisel mechanics. I am a gas mechanic and body man. So I don't have a lot of heavy hauling or towing. But getting a truck would be start I want to get into racing and camping. So it be nice. What are some majors I should look at and expect when searching or looking for diesel.
Thanks

On the 7.3 check oil pan for rust, it’s common. Look down in valley of engine for fluids, the hoses to fuel filter can get cracks/leak. Make sure trans shifts smooth especially the 1-2 shift, they’re notorious for a harsh shift that requires some money to make right. Look over the wheel joints and ball joints etc for wear
