f250 7.3 psd

hi guys wnting your thoughts on said. i'm looking at a f 250 7.3 it has 450k on the clock but they have been mostly highway k's and i know this because i know the bloke it hasn't done much heavy towing and has a fair bit of body damage,because it has been a work truck he wants 36k for it which i think is fair for a 2002 model. it is a extra cab 4x4. is there any thing in particular i should be looking out for.one thing i noticed is on the rear right hand side tyre there is a wavey where patern on the inside, but not on any other tyre and for a second as it hits and goes through 60kph it has a slight whine to it, not sure if it is the auto box or the diff, any ideas?
i won't be using it for any hard offroading just a bit of beach work i've got a patrol for the harder stuff. any thoughts cheers guys. :drink:

i worked at a ford dealership and they wernt to crash hot always coming in with problems. few turbos were replaced, always leaking oil. But working in a dealership you see a lot of problems. My uncle had one to tow his fuel for his escavator and got rid of it and got a hilux as it was giving him heaps of problems. But plenty of power.

Crank angle sensor gives up but is a cheap fix, the under tappet cover wiring harness can also give trouble, but isnt a big thing to fix........ good truck and 99% of people with them love them.
Go on a few US forums and ask questions.... the 7.3 is a good donk .

My mate just bought a 2005 F-250. Ford don't know what the part number is for the rear axle seals. Do you?
