Re: 94' F250 7.3 - Any major things to worry about?
I bought my 92 with a bad tranny a year ago, it had torque convertor lock up problems and I think the pump was going also. The shifts are mushy and the pumps aren't any good. The torque convertors suck. They don't put enough cooler on them. They make shift kits and other stuff to actually put in the tranny to beef them up. Banks ans Baumanns make controllers for them. You can also buy a completely beefed up tranny. If you keep an eye on the temps while pulling and change the fluid and filter every 10k miles they will work. Also need to keep the tps/fipl adjusted. Like I said I own one and would own another, but just be ready to replace at any time. On average they live for 100k-150k miles.
