What diesel in an 88?

Looking at a 1988 F250 diesel today.
What size motor would it be? 7.3l?
What questions about servicing of the motor --ie parts replaced?
Have a few JD Tractors that are diesel -- so I have a little knowledge of the diesels -- issues to date have been injector pump and thats it(JD tractor not truck).

8th character of your VIN is the engine type. M is the 7.3L diesel and 1 is the 6.9L diesel. I think the last year for the 6.9L was 1987 so you probably have a 7.3L.
