Just purchased 1985 Ford F-250 6.9 Diesel

Hey everyone.

Im new to this forum, but i just purchased a 1985 Ford f-250 6.9 Diesel. The Engine is still strong with only about 158,000 on it. I'm new to the Diesel scene, so I would appreciate any input on stuff i should look into to start learning more about the truck and making improvements. Any input would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks guys!

If they start cold and run well, just keep driving them. If you want more power, nothing is worth doing except adding a turbo.
