Just something to think about!
Didn't Beard just sell his diesel because the maintenance was killing him?
If you have no real use for a diesel, your asking for more trouble than you have now. Do you like to get in your truck, turn the key and go? Forget that.
Do you like paying $0.20 more a gallon (at least thats what it is here) for gas?
Also, Your a Ford Mechanic. last i knew, they didn't give you much training on diesels. if something breaks your probably not going to be able to fix it yourself.
All of my diesel buddies don't even want to touch older powerstrokes like that, according to them, they're about as a good of a boat anchor as an engine.
just my thoughts.
