No I've owned diesels for many many years in trucks and all kinds of equipment (currently have 10 diesels). And owned 6.9 and 7.3 IDI's since I can remember. Done plenty of research and reading on them over the years as I like to tinker and mod them.

Now I have a 6.9 with an ATS 093 wastegated turbo on it. I had a 7.3 with the old style banks kit on it but didn't like how the turbo spooled up too high in the RPM's without the wastegate. I hear the newer banks sidewinder is much better though. Would like to try a banks sidewinder and a hypermax setup on a 6.9 IDI someday.

I have a '86 6.9l, thats been bored .20 over, Has the '94 IDI Turbo Diesel Injector Pump and Injectors, Pistons, Has the IP turned up 3 flats, Running a Banks Sidewinder Turbo and a few other things, she Dyno'd at 300hp

Have a '93 7.3l w/250k miles that i have never done anything with the antifreeze and no issues, Dad had a '83 F250 with the 6.9l that had almost a million miles and never did anything with the antifreeze.. Many head gaskets though..that's a 6.9l problem (Almost always the pass side).. It's actually pretty hit or miss.. just like the Cummins 53 Block crack issues.. not every one of them suffers from the problem

And the 6.9l was used in Combines long before it ever made its 1983 debut in Ford Trucks

You've been lucky. I have a 93 7.3IDI block in the garage with a hole through a cylinder wall. Odometer showed less than 200k miles. I'm guessing the previous owner used lots of tap water in the coolant over the years.

My current 6.9 has ARP head studs and I haven't had a head gasket problem yet. "knock on wood" haha

427 wasnt to bad for a gas motor. the bad part is its a gas motor. a lot of them that had loaders on them up way broke the frame in them. not many 6 wheel trucks around here hauling wood.
