Here is a little more info from Ford -

In 1992, the powertrain line was largely carried over; the E-Series was equipped with the 300 CID (4.9L) inline-six as a base engine with an option of three gasoline V8s: 302 cu in (4.9 L), 351 cu in (5.8 L), and a 460 cu in (7.5 L)). A T444E with 444 cu in (7.3 L) diesel V8 sourced from Navistar was also available, and offered with an optional turbocharger starting in 1993. In mid-year 1994, the 444 cu in (7.3 L) IDI diesel was replaced by a 444 cu in (7.3 L) Ford Powerstroke diesel, also sourced from Navistar.

For 1997, nearly the entire engine line was replaced, with only the 7.3L Powerstroke diesel remaining. A 4.2L Essex V6 replaced the 4.9L inline-6 and the 7.5L V8 was replaced by a 6.8L Triton V10. The 302 cu in (4.9 L) and 351 cu in (5.8 L) Windsor V8s were replaced by 4.6L and 5.4L Triton V8s, respectively.

During the 2003 model year, the 7.3L Powerstroke diesel was replaced by a 6.0L Powerstroke diesel, again sourced by Navistar; due to the lack of airflow in the engine compartment compared to the Ford Super Duty trucks, the version used in the E-Series required to be slightly detuned. In contrast to the 7.3L V8, the 6.0L Powerstroke is intercooled.

For 2004, the 4.2L V6 was dropped from the E150 and E250, with the 4.6L V8 becoming the base engine; for the first time in its production, the base engine for all E-Series models was a V8 (a first in American full-size vans). Output of the 6.8L Triton V10 was increased to 305 hp (227 kW; 309 PS) and 420 lbft (569 Nm) torque, and to 235/440 for the 6.0L diesel.

Its not like the 7.3PSD wont hit 1,000,000 either...
These motor are built to last.
But the PSD will get there a bunch quicker than the IDI.

2001 E350 PSD w/ a bunch of stuff.
And had three other E350s...

So, the inspection went well. Apart from a fuel leak ( that’s being repaired at minimal cost to me) the only things they found were a brake light above the rear doors out and it could do with realignment/wheel balancing, oh and the headlight lenses are a little cloudy.
Agreed on a decent price, I pick it up Saturday.

Excited for the summer project!

Thanks for all your help guys.

I hope you can live with the seatbelts. I don't want to rain on your parade but they are a big problem for many people. Pre 97 were an ancient design that hang way back on the roof line and annoy/choke a lot of people. A lot of these people are small and female.
Congrats on the find. I hope it works for you.
