I checked the front axle fluid quite a while after I bought my 75' and it looked really nasty.

A friend of mine bought a truck here a while ago that the front diff. was bone dry.

-1991 D-250 bone stock
-2000 Ford Windstar TDI Diesel 5 spd
-1997 Civic Hatchback
-Case 530 CK
-Old Huskee Garden Tractor w/Cub Cadet deck, Simplicity Snow-blower, loaded tires & chains - is it weird the tractor is modded more than my truck?
-Speedex Walking Tractor.
-BCS Walking Tractor

That's why I'm glad the original owner of my truck had a maintenance log of everything he did with the truck. It's nice to know the guy before you took good care of the truck you're about to buy.

I've found that generally guys who work their trucks, take better care of them, and have logs in the glove compartment.
