    Hello. I just bought my very first diesel truck today. I have heard about the 7.3's, did my research, and found a great deal on a 1989 F250 Custom 7.3 L IDI and 5 spd transmission. I am the 3rd owner of the truck. Records have been kept for everything. It has 73,000 miles (verified by 2 diesel mechanics) The coolant additive was used as soon as the 1st owner realized its importance (around 30,000) Starts and runs better than i thought possible for an 89. Has no leaks to speak of. I have never been so happy with a purchase in my life. Long story short I've decided that i would like to change the gear ratio to 3.55 as I hardly ever pull anything, and if i do it won't be heavy enough to be a problem. I came across a post from 2 or 3 years ago that explained how you tried the switch and didn't like it. I was seeing if you still had those 3.55 gears. I'm sure you don't since it has been a while since then, but I had to try because I live in Huntsville. Thank you very much for your time.
