Ok, here is a second attempt of my post on this thread, hopefully this time it will end up with something useful, not a warning lol. Anywho.

1995 International 4700 Dump Truck
7.3L T444E
Dayton 5-spoke Rims (Gonna be replaced by some steels, maybe Alcoas if I can find a cheap clean set)
Rugby Dump Bed
Hours and Mileage, Idk.
Originally owned by CSX down in Jacksonville Florida, I think. Bought by a Farmer up in Virginia, I know a guy who knew this guy, so that makes us the 3rd owner. But the truck isnt in a bad shape, really clean except for the dump bed which is beat up (Why wouldnt it be).
Lol, The side emblem (4700 T444E) logo badge thingy is missing on the righthand side of the hood..

Sharp looking rig. I wouldn't do that 5.0 swap if I were you. The 300 is a much more reliable motor and actually has a higher torque rating than the 302 and is easier to work on. If the 300 is blown out, rebuild it or get another one. The M5OD isn't a bad trans either. They used them in the 4.0 Rangers. Just a tidbit of advice. It's your truck, do what you want with it.

If people can call gas vehicles "gassers", then can we call diesel vehicles "dieselers"?
Last I checked a gasser is a type of drag car. Get it right.

Yeah. Alot of people are telling me the 300 straight six can't be killed. And I love the 5 speed mM50D, but the only problem, I have an internal leak in the transmission. So it loses tranny fluid quicker than normal. But other than that it works amaing. And 97K miles means this thing hasen't even really been broken in much yet, because my girl's cousin had it sitting in a garage, taking it out once every few weeks to just keep the fluids fresh in the motor and other stuff so they didnt set too long in there. 

Ill record a video the next time I hav e it out, but the roads around me are kind of curvy, not many straight, and the little problem I am facing with the steering is that it like to wander on the road whlle driving. You can turn the steering wheel a whole qlmost quarter turn before the wheels will start turning. But I can't work on that right now lol. The entire fuel system was recently replaced. All hoses, lines, you name it, was replaced pertaining to fuel. Next is either the steering or some of the electrical problems, like speakers, and things like that.

You have a good truck to start with. One thing I'm not familiar with on the fullsize Fords is the steering. I'd guess worn out gears. You can rob an M5OD out of almost anything, the only truck I drove with one was a Ranger and it had so much play in 3rd gear I thought it was in neutral. A 300 with 97k original miles is a jewel. If you go to replace the transmission be sure to replace the tires at the same time and send both out in a cloud of white rubber smoke! Wink

My 2000 F-250 SuperDuty, as you can tell from the year it has a 7.3l Powerstroke, I am not a big fan of Powerstroke, but the price this truck was it was a steal, it was a theft recovery from down south and the person who stole it replaced the cluster so it says 400,XXX miles but we got it inspected and the man says that there was no way that it was over 100,000 miles, he says that because all the original bearings from the dealership are still in there and he said for this year truck it's front end would have fell off by now if it had 400,000 miles lol.
 
It has a 4" lift and 35" Cooper Discoverers with I think 18" Sota Novakanes (Can't remember exact size but it's around there lol)

Anyways the truck has a SCT Programmer in it with tunes from Eric at Innovative diesel in Elkton, MD
And it is getting ready to have a MBRP 5" turbo back exhaust w/ muffler and it is soon going to have a boost fooler and S&B intake on it. 
Anyways, that's my truck. Any questions just PM me
