We’ve lately been tossing around the option of buying a new Ford 7.3, 4WD, gas, SRW, 10 speed auto, F-350. They promote it as a real V-8 TRUCK engine, not a warmed over passenger car engine. As it’s a new offering, it’s difficult to find any user reports on mpg, and power with a load, but the load carrying ability, at least on paper is way up there. If any of you have a link, lehmee noh.
There is nothing wrong with our Generation II Dodge Cummins H.O. except we’re getting old enough for Jeanie not to want to drive the 6-speed manual anymore; at least not with the zeal that she drove her 1961 VW convertible, or our 1980 International Harvester Scout Diesel Traveler some decades ago.
