If that 6.0 is such a great engine then why are we selling former die hard Ford people new Dodges every day? Ford screwed up when they did away with the 7.3 and put that junky 6.0 in their trucks! You can beef it up for a while, but sooner or later it will fly into a million pieces!

I can see you just got back from mars after having an intergalatic meeting with Captian Zorb on space molecular structure-good day to what ever asylum you are at.

Hmmmmmm.....Post that " dyno sheet". Possible for an all out race diesel but a street truck? For some strange reason, I don't believe you. Sounds like a Dodge or Duramax eat your lunch and you can only post a tale to feel better. Coarse I could be wrong.

I quit racing cars in the mid 70s. I would not know what to do with 960 hp except waste fuel and get into trouble. That is all I got to say too. Mark H.

i like power an speed always have always will, nothing like a big block chevy howlin down the highway, used to love the 383s too had on in a 65 plymouth even the cops couldn,t catch when we were kids, now i gotta settled for a grande am , shes pretty fast does howl when ya kick her down , one thing about it it,s fast enough to get you out of a jam on a crowed highway, the new to me chevy pickup is a nice ride but like willy said don,t haul as much as the old ones, i keep the 81 3/4 4x4 for haulin loads an the trailer , got a 74 gmc here with a 454 in it might do something with that someday if i can,t fit that 454 in the nova.all i need it time and money.lol

That power level sounds about right for my Ford pickup.

I have a 1963 Ford Falcon Ranchero. It's a 6 cylinder gas burner with automatic.

I have to go a little easy thru the mountains by it not having a Jake Brake on it but outside of that I like it.

I imagine a 2004 diesel would be a hoss.

that's a real classic, burr. ya just don't see many of them anymore. sure wish they still made them. very handy for farm use. just don't know what i'd do with 960 hp.

Well my Dodge Flat Head 6 just plugs along at 50 mph max and I just love it. Still like driving the old M-37 but it is 51 years old too, they did not know how to build them in those days! Mark H.

I like them old vehicles too. Everything I get in today seems like I'm sitting in a plastic toy of somekind or a sand bucket. I like some steel around me.


Willy-N    Posted 08-29-2004 at 22:28:15       [Reply]  [No Email]
There is 5,680 lbs of real steel in mine. 48- 1/2 inch Grade 8 Bolts holds on the front bumper & 8,000lb PTO Winch too. Problem is I have to use the new cars crumple zone in a wreck! Might not have the high HP but you can sit on the fenders and walk around on the hood if needed. Course it is only rated 3/4 ton off road and 1 ton on road. The GVWR is 8,900 lbs and when you do the math it works out to only a 2,220 lb load in the bed. You should see what happens to my new truck if you put a real ton in the back! This one sits level still! But the new one has AC and a Radio!! The old one you have to open the vent on the hood and push the 2-windsheilds out to get cool! Mark H.

I never bought one with AC til 87 or 89 I think it was. Every time until then I could go onto the Ford lot and get a pickup without it.

That year all that were in the region for immediate sale without me having to pay extra shipping had factory AC.

So since the AC was cheaper than shipping I ended up with a blow cool machine. I have'nt even tried to buy one without it again tho.

Whatever happened on the feller that would'nt pick up his truck anyway??

You be careful if ye get called out. Did the rain help your area?? I could'nt tell by the weather pix here if it got you or not. I'll check back on ye in the morning. Nite

Fire season has realy slowed down this year early?? As far as the 48 Power Wagon I still have it. The guy got my letter but never responded??? It has now been over a year and Lawyer time to settle the problem. A second letter has been sent but it is just like wasting my time. Mark H.

never had that happen here before. Before I finished this thing grabbed up a partial and posted it. Might be a talerban attack look out.
