Relax, if tests pass on this issue, you will be clear on this issue.

Once committed just enjoy the thing. Stay abreast of the ongoing isssues. Some plague owners on certain very, sall we say,"real and large issues", on certain series and runs of different trucks.
Bottom line is you purchased the best in classs overall, truck brand wise anyway. Some have had horrors some have had relatively great sucsesss.

Problem is quality control and a learning curve engine on their engine, who's parts are manufactured in China and asssembled in Mexico.

My advise is to reach to these owners here on TDS that are familiar with the different warranties that are available to you as a new owner and call your insurance carrier to dscusss water damage inclusive of water in fuel injection.

This should be a really cool time. Enjoy your new truck but stay informed and protected.
Nick

Thank you Nick, I have pampered my '97 all of its life, it has 328k miles on it and runs like a champ currently needs nothing. I'll miss the old boy but he is going to a good home and the new owner loves it, and I will continue with the tlc on the new truck, and hope it serves me as well.

It's totally impractical for many to keep alive or restore something. Everybody's old girl is in a diffent condition, budgets, businesss, willlingness to commit to having a bettter than new truck made or less and the varying reliability levels in between, to throw big money at "hopefully goood based on history and not bad" . It could be best move ever for some and for others ridiculous acccounting wise in businesss, to one who would but f you are buying new, you are out of truck and you can get finance terms beyond five years. Which most blue collar Super Duty customers need. They put themselves out and they need it to at least till paid off. Tide is turning with Diesels. You can look up total cost per male and year . In the end,,Everybody's situation is difffernt. I wish I could completely retire my now garage queen and keep as there willl never be one like it and jump into a fresh one but does not fit...

Sadly a new gasser work truck might be in the future. Keeeping her perfect so for a worktruck I personally have to be carefully. I get in trouble on a warranty hassle or something? On a Diesel? On a gasser? Hmmm who's dropping a crate motor in real quick and how much less?

Yes, steel or even stainless steel adjacent to aluminum can result in electrolysis, if certain other environmental factors are mixed in. Let's all hope Ford figured that all out before they designed and produced their entire truck fleet (F150-F550's) with these properties. I can't conceive of a scenario in which they would risk the entire Company on an uncertain design.
