1989 E-350 diesel van, right forum?

I have a 1989 ambulance based on an E-350 with a diesel engine.
I believe this is a 7.3L but I am not sure, can anyone tell me what the engine code in the VIN is and where in the VIN it is?

This truck has not been started in about 3 years. It was run on bio-diesel at that time.
I have put 9-1-1 in the fuel tank and I do get a slight trickle of fuel from one of the injector lines. Next step is to change the fuel filter and fill it with 9-1-1 and diesel fuel -- if that is possible.

I need to change the fuel filter but do not know how it attaches. As this is a van body it is hidden beneath the structure of the cab. It is located on the drivers side of the engine towards the front.

Can someone verify that this is a 7.3L engine?
Can someone tell me how the fuel filter is changed. It wouild help if there were a diagram of the engine I could look at.
How do I purge the air from the fuel system after I change the filter, is it possible to load it with 9-1-1 and diesel when I put a new one on?

I am also looking for wiring diagrams, the ambulance was not put together by Ford so I am searching for the aftermarket company.

Any assistance appreciated.
