Sorry to ask questions about a Ford, but my dad's about to buy one and I want to learn as much as possible about them (pros and cons) to educate his decision. He's looking for a tow rig in the 5K-6K dollar range, and found this '93 Ford F350 dually with a 12' flat bed for $5500. It has a diesel, manual trans, and is 4wd. Approx 150,000 miles with all maintenence records for regular oil changes with synthetic oil (mastercraft until warranty expiration, however). It has been a work truck, but a one owner, well maintained work truck. Teach me about the drivetrain. I think it should be a 7.3L, right? What's their reputation? What axles will it have? What is known to break? How long does an International Ford diesel last? What 5 speed would be in it? 5 years ago I would have turned my nose up at it just for being a Ford, but I'm starting to broaden my horizons. Help me learn about this non-Chevy stuff. Thanks...and if this needs to be moved to a different spot, Mods, since its a Ford, I won't fuss.
