Hey everyone the name is Manuel and i recently got my first diesel about a week ago. I got a 1984 Ford F-250 EXT cab long bed 6.9L IDI with a ATS turbo. With a C6 3 spd automatic tranny and the rear end i'm not sure haven't checked that out yet. 202,xxx miles not exact but you get it. Stainless steel 4 inch exhaust with a 5 inch chrome tip. I know i will be needing help along the way on keeping this truck running good and doing work on it. I know this may not be the baddest truck but i know i sure love it. I really dig the 1990's and older trucks just love their style. Hopefully i can learn alot and will be able to get the help i may need. As well as offer some if i am able.

Welcome to the Diesel Stop

Congrats on your new to you truck. These old beasts don't move fast, but they move anything you hitch up to and they don't have a bunch of electronics to worry about. Hope you enjoy years of driving.

Thank you chuckster57. Yeah i know they dont have much power but im not worried about that. Performance in these trucks is not what im after. I love these style trucks on looks and that awesome diesel sound they make. I still want to make sure that it is kept up of course with all routine maintenance and what not. I also didnt want a diesel that had all that electro stuff to worry about. This truck is just gonna be a resto kinda project for me. I will use it to haul and pull stuff as thats what trucks are made for.
