an old IDI ford's gotta be the perfect truck for a conversion like that. and reliable as hell too. my buddie has one with 550,000 miles on it that's never been rebuilt, and the damn thing still runs like a new truck!

Well, not a happy f250 owner... the guys wife wants to get 4k or at least 3800 she said was her lowest she would go.
the guy told me to give it a week, because he is picking up his new truck this weekend, and said by the same time next week with 2 big trucks and 2 cars in the drive she will want it gone. so fingers still crossed but we will see.

I owed a 1986 f350 diesel 6.9 IDI. I bought it off the OO. it had 140k on it .....very nice shape. I drove it for about a year and sold it 3 years ago when I bought the ranger I have now. I paid $2500 and sold it for 2500. I added a slave and a few other minor things....it was nice just to big for my needs. the truck you are looking at is technically a 7.3 idi. the 7.3 is prone to cavitation(pits in cylinder walls) if the the proper coolant with additives was not used. there is a GREAT site called thedieselstop.com you should join it and go to the idi forums. there are a few very knowledgeable guys over there. there is one member "cdnsaruy" He knows absolutely everything about these trucks and he is very very helpful. I just looked on there to see if he was still there and he had a few posts that were less than an hour old......you might want to post a thread over there they will give you an idea what to look for and what you should be paying......good luck
