    Default 1994 Ford Bronco Centurion C350 Diesel on Ebay, Norfolk, VA

    Ebay Linky

    This is a very rare 1994 Banks Turbo Diesel Ford Centurion Bronco. I acquired this vehicle from the daughter of the original owner. It was a California truck with no rust and mechanically had no issues. It was originally green on the exterior, I had it painted one of the new Ford blue colors from their new F150 color palette. It has three rows of seating, the third row folds down into a small bed. For the year and the fact that it is diesel, the mileage is not much. The engine purrs and sounds great. It is the venerable power stroke diesel engine that Ford no longer makes. I am not sure how many of these trucks were made with the diesel option, but I do not think it was very many, most were gas. The four wheel drive works great and this thing is pretty much unstoppable. We have taken very good care of her and she has not been a daily driver, but only used for family vacations. There are four small holes on the rear quarter panel and tailgate where the bolts for the spare tire carrier were. I took it off as it was a pain to open it every time I had to open the rear tailgate. I still have it if the new owner wants it. Also, when shifting from first to second, you can feel it. I had the transmission looked at and the mechanic said it was normal for the turbo to give that kind of boost on the shift. Thats as far a I investigated it and it has not been an issue.


    We have really enjoyed this vehicle, but I have another vehicle I am ready to start on and not enough room in the warehouse for everything.

    It's a great looking truck, but it's a 7.3L Turbo IDI, not a 7.3L Turbocharged DI like he is advertising. Which has the price to high by at least $1000.

    The IDI is a great engine, I have one, just not a powerstroke.

    Engine bay photo for those who are curious, I'd recognize it anywhere.

    Ride home went good, no big issues. Shocks are worn out so it was a little bouncy. I guess if a guy is gonna buy new shocks he just as well buy a 4" lift kit...

    Power steering leaked a little. Started whining around lexington. I've driven it 300 miles since I got it home though with no issues so it appears to be a slooowwww leak. Guy claimed roof repairs were done on the ebay listing, and they were, but flaking a little already. Will need re-attention.

    Speaking of lift kits - my 97 1 tons will take 35's without a lift. Just have to shim or sawzall the front bumper. Will the c350 take 35's without a lift? I've got a set of bfg kmII's that are eager to go on there. Also, this is my 1st idi diesel. Have always ran psd's. Curious to know what "necessary" mods I need to do.

    I think the consensus is that they will clear with an ad-a-leaf in the front, but not with factory running boards. It is that close.

    IDI mods, hmmm that is a whole can of worms there. Do you have a pyro and boost gauge? That is probably the first one.

    Yes, its got the 3 a pillar gauges. There were a few other extras that i'm surprised he didn't put on the ebay listing. Extra converter, extra battery in back, some stereo stuff. Right now i'm looking for hp though. Little less than the psd's i'm used to. And it has new exhaust but it looks like a little down pipe still. I don't suppose my spare TS chip will work on the idi...

    Working with what you have, turn the fuel up until the EGTs can't handle anymore.
    Read up on tweaking the timing to optimum and determining what optimum is. LOL

    After that, next steps would be like Intercooler, different turbo, different IP pump and injectors.
    Basically expensive stuff.

    I will probably go with the "screwdriver to the fuel pump" mod then.

    It has a banks turbo & air filter on it. The guy told me he thought that came from centurion. That true? Or was it an add on? The standard ford owners manual is in the glove box but no centurian information.

    Centurion did use banks frequently. I would not be surprised if they added it.
