introduce

Hello everybody.

Time to introduce me here in this forum.

I recently purchased a 2001 sportsmobile with the 7.3L diesel. Some of you will know it. Itīs "manfort"
I am living in germany and the guy is after a long shipping tour in my home now. I picked it up on this weekend in Bremerhafen and had there my first night in it :-)
While driving home (400mls) i had no problems and everything worked perfekt.
The Ford is like how i expected it and how the seller descriped it. Thanks to him he is a realy honest guy!

In future i will need to ask you guys a few things i do not understand. Hope you can help me a little in it.

I thinking to change some things on it the next month as i have time.

I'm in Bavaria / Germany

Thanks to all who reply. And sorry for my bad english

Didi
