New to diesels

Hi everyone. I'm new to diesels. I bought a 2003 F350 dually with a 7.3l, combined with a Lance Camper. I chose the 7.3 based on it's reputation from my research. I was lucky to find a fairly rust free example with 160,000 miles on the clock. I know I will be a frequent visitor here as I have never owned a Diesel and though I am a fairly competent mechanic I've only worked on gas motors, Most recently a E350 with a 460ci.motorhome, my previous rig. Thanks for excepting me.

My first June of 2018. Like you, worked on gassers but read a lot about the 7.3 PSD’s to send me on a quest. Little bit of a learning curve but you couldn’t ask for a better bunch of guys on this forum!
