6.9l international questions

I own a 6.9l diesel in my "motor home" and would like to know if many people have had many problems with them, i have 95000 miles on it, not to much i know, hardly broke in,


p.s. : i own a ford powerstroke truck, and i would never trade it for anything, i am hoping the 6.9 is about the same as the 7.3, except for the turbo,

1987 ihc 60 pass bus, converted to toy hauler, 6.9l diesel, auto, sleeps 6, carries up to 4 atv's

The 6.9/7.3 IDI and the PowerStroke are totally different engines, sharing essentially nothing. However, the 6.9 IDI is pretty tough...we have 588,000 miles on one in a tow truck (1986 F-350) at work. Just keep the right coolant additive in it.
