I just picked up a 1991 F250 7.3l IDI Lariat with the banks kit on it.
I got it from an elderly gentleman who has had it since brand new, and he cant get into it anymore.
It has 100,000 original miles a built e4od done at 95,000. He told me the tranny didn't need to be rebuilt but he wanted to tow a trailer so he had it done anyways given their track record.
I have every single piece of paperwork and reciept for the truck all maintence records including a log book he kept for all the work he did himself.
It has always been treated for cavitation since as long as people started doing it.
Everything works and not one spec of rust!

I will be starting a build thread for it soon.

any suggestions shout them out now!

i didnt even know they came in a lariat. TTB dump is probably the first thing on my list to do.

the fluid level seems too high on the tranny dipstick. It is just at/slightly above the cross hatched area. Isnt it supposed to be down at the second hole? The man i bought it from just had the tranny fluid changed.

TTB isnt bad if your not lifting it, but not worth the cost of a lift kit if you are, plus nothing more janky looking than a 3/4 ton with a TTB lift hanging down...

I love the bricknose look, I think ill keep that, but I want to lift it and a dana 60 is a must, my buddy has one with 4.10 gears. so now I just have to get it out of him!

If you consider a 87-91 a OBS, then yes
Man, I dont think ive ever seen that seat in a bricknose, maybe once, but I figured it was swapped in. I always see lariats with buckets and a console, or like my two lariats that had standard benches... Must have been a top option or something?

i cant believe the condition the bench seat is in either and its really comfortable!
The day i went to look at it i was really hoping the interior wasnt going to be red!

So i changed the fluid in the tranny today
changed the engine oil and filter
removed the aluminum running boards

Tomorrow Im going to change the valve cover gaskets, the driver side is leaking pretty bad.
Any suggestions/ tricks, or is the job pretty straight forward.
Should I use felpro gaskets?

Felpros are fine, My main suggestion I have is to put a dab of RTV in the bolt holes before you put the bolts in, Ive seen several IDI's that leak from the bolt holes, but no where else.
