Re: Looking to buy a 7.3 with 300k, advice?
the 99.5 to 2001 were the most desirable 7.3 after that they went away from the forged connecting rods. my 2 cents. check for blowby, look up the air intake tube towards the engine/turbo and check for grit or dirt,this will give some information on a dusted engine, start the engine cold and see how bad it smokes and what color the smoke is and how rough does it idle when first started cold. 4 thousand might be allot of money to somone but just the transmission will run that to rebuild and injectors will be about that installed if needed, a turbo will be about 1500 bucks ect. the 7.3 is a good motor but how well was it taken care of before you are buying it. if someone who had it before you wasn't up on the maintenance side you can spend another 4 thousand right quick. Thankx sorry for the long post.
