Outer wheel diameter is just under 17mm. The wheels are kind of a sloppy fit into the tires, but I've found filing down the wheelbacks (thus narrowing the wheel assembly) helps the outer wheel fit better into the tire.
Thanks for the info Chuck!

It was a love hate relationship with the 7.3 IHI non turbo diesel. This is a 89 F450 for reference.

Not sure where you are seeing that- out-of-box the kit has one battery- on the passenger's side, with the coolant/washer solvent tank on the opposite. If you wanted to model a dual-battery truck you'd need to relocate the tank and put a second battery in its place. That's basically what Ford did on the diesels. Sucky part is, being a Monogram kit, both the battery and tank are molded to the inner fender/core support structure.
I see there are two batteries under the hood. Now maybe this was an option with some camper edition or something, I just know that I had this cab style in 87 and it had the 6.9 Liter diesel and the two batteries, so this would be a good cab to use as a start for a model with a diesel engine in it. I think it is time someone comes up with one
I've seen a couple of gas-powered F-series trucks from this body style with dual batteries as well, but I can't tell you for sure if Ford offered dual batteries on gas powered trucks or if those were owner-installed setups.
I heard Ma's Resin was working on a 7.3 IH/Ford diesel, but I don't think it's available for sale yet.
