7.3 high mileage questions

1794 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  ReefBlue
I currently own an 02 with a 7.3, has 85k on it and I've had since it was almost new. I'm looking at buying a 2001 (7.3) that has 186k on it, has a bad valve but can't really find anything else wrong with it. Can you guys with higher mileage trucks gimme some info on what else to look for and how are your trucks holding up at around 200k? This was a fleet vehicle that looks to have been taken care of. Just wanted some input. Thanks
