Is there a way to tell DMF or SMF without removing trans?

I'm in the process of buying a 1996 PSD 5-speed, and I've heard a lot about this dual mass flywheel. Current owner has not had the truck long and doesn't seem to know much about it. Is there a way...

I have only test drove the truck, not bought it yet, but most likely will. Thanks for all the feedback on the clutch system, doesn't sound too difficult.

Clutch travel

I'm looking at (planning to buy) a 1996 F250 7.3 5 speed. It's got 400k miles, but runs great, rust free and drives fine, and it's in my price range ($5k)

The only issue with driving is the...
