Ok, so got it running, drove it some, it really cleared up considerably. Has an intermittent miss, showed to be #5 during a contribution test, although it passed the test. Not sure what that means, maybe a sticky injector? The oil is horrible.

So time will tell, if I get to mess with it further or sell it first. We'll see.

I would second this... oil change is always a good thing on a 7.3 powerstroke

Agreed. I can't understand why folks neglect the maintenance on those engines. So much relies on clean oil in a 7.3, but, if you see the truck in person you'd understand. It had trash piled inside up to the windows, lights knocked out everywhere, filthy filthy.

It is. I remember this particular truck when the previous owner bought it. It was beautiful. Interior was spotless, shiny new paint, he drove it by to show us after he bought it. I'd love to bring it back, but so much is needed the dollars don't make sense.
