here we go ! 92-E350 7.3 input
1st post after a year + of scouting. Took the plunge & purchased a 92 E350 7.3 equipped with
a Banks Turbo Sidewinder system and a not-certain-just-yet 4X4 conversion (it has leaf springs).
It's a build project over the next few seasons and this year, Year 1, is to get it totally road worthy for UT back country & high elevation, high temp ops including some light/moderate towing. It won't be heavily loaded - 2 people, 5 dogs and a interior that will be shedding contents as a part of the 'build'. I assume the 1 ton chassis with the 7.3/Banks mod gives me what I need for power, towing & altitudes up to 10,ooo perhaps 11,ooo feet.
2 owners with a represented history of appropriate maintenance, 165k, and very little off road use. My request to you is what do you advise I check, upgrade, confirm and inspect
on the engine, tranny/transfer/drive line/undercarriage. I have a hint of info on coolant filters and have some knowledge about Amsoil 'dual' filtering of this big diesel. This IS my 1st diesel & i am up to speed on quality filters and proper cooling of the powerplant.
I'm looking for the "gotcha's" this piece of equipment may throw at me and intend to give it a thorough servicing and Inspection in anticipation of this season's outings.
Thanks for you time and I do intend to not wear out my welcome.
