Picked up a Turbo IDI with a five speed

We needed something to drag our trailer until I get my dually put back together. Stumbled across this 350 almost by accident and got a screaming deal. Yes, it needs some work. Nothing real serious though. The body is pretty good with only one real dent to contend with. Just some lipstick and rouge is all she needs.

Truck had at time of purchase:
New radiator
New water pump
New injection pump
All new brakes and components on all four corners
And either a new or at least rebuilt turbo (it appears to be anyway)

So far I have replaced the glow plugs, glow plug control module, and the fuel filter. A buddy of mine provided almost all the other parts I needed from a parts truck he has. The brakes are squishy, it feels like it needs a new clutch and I think the fuel shut valve or the ignition module is bad. I just happen to have a set of new tires for it as well. I know it sounds like a lot. But it is little stuff. Overall it is a nice truck with relatively low use.

My bro in law has a dually 350 and it has 200k with aftermarket turbo and runs great! Great MPG and ok pulling power. Brakes are a little weak I feel. Good buy on your end.
