F650 Oil Capacity & Power Steering Fluid Question

I just picked up a 1989 F650 Flatbed Wrecker for a new business I just started. This is my first truck larger than my F350. I want to do an oil change and I don't have any specs on capacity. Does anyone know how many quarts it will take? I was told it has 6cyl Brazilian English diesel. Also, what type of power steering fluid would it take?

I'm not sure, but you will probably be talking gallons, not quarts. I know the PSD takes about 15 quarts and the 425 Cat in my dump truck at work takes 10 gallons, so I'm sure it is somwhere between these. I know this wasn't much help. Hopefully someone else knows for sure what it is. By the way the engine should be either the 6.6 or 7.8 Ford Diesel.

Re: F650 Oil Capacity & Power Steering Fluid Question

Well, my DT466 takes ~25 quarts.

Like Stephen said, it's prolly a Ford/New Holland diesel. I used to have a 6.6L in an F-700. Decent little motor, the 7.8L is better, but I forget the oil capacity. I'd think you're in the 20-25 range.

I didn't know my oil capacity on my 466 when I bought it, either, so I just checked the dipstick (it read full), then drained it into a couple 5 gallon buckets. I estimated it to be ~ 6+ gallons, so I just added ~6+ gallons of Shell Rotella and it was darn near full..

Try to fill your new filter(s) with oil, too.

Come back often and let us know how she's running!

We have a 7.8L in a '92 L8000 single axle dump at work. When I first started working there the truck had something wrong with it and it was so gutless and it would barley start when it was even a little bit cold out. But it has been fixed since then. I don't know what the problem was (probably just needed a tune up or someting), but it is soo much better now. A lot more power and in cold weather it is now the best starting truck we have. We pull a lowbed with it, so depending on the equipment being moved, it is still a bit underpowered, but a very decent engine anyways.

Re: F650 Oil Capacity & Power Steering Fluid Question

My friend is a deisel mechanic for a big steel company. They have dozens of F-800's & L-8000's and other trucks. Some have 3208 CAT's, some have 5.9L's and some have 7.8L Ford diesels.

He likes the 7.8L's the best.

Re: F650 Oil Capacity & Power Steering Fluid Question

I would hate to have a 5.9 in that size truck. I realize it will do it, but whats the point? Its an excelent pickup engine, but really doesn't belong in a larger truck.

Re: F650 Oil Capacity & Power Steering Fluid Question

Check what's in the power steering reservoir, unless it is something weird, it is probably just ATF. Some heavier pumps and steering gears give you the option of using 15W-40 or ATF but say not to mix them. But I would be surprised to find anything but ATF in yours.

Also if it is the same as my 1989 C-8000 and 1982 F-700 it will have a little filter inside the power steering reservoir that might stand changing. Not hard to find or expensive, if you decide to change it and can't cross reference give me a holler and I will dig up the PN.

Re: F650 Oil Capacity & Power Steering Fluid Question

There's an '89 F700 at work with the (210hp rating) 7.8 in it. I can check and see if the sticker says the oil's capacity. They seem to run pretty well when you up the fuel rate too [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img].

Just looked today, it doesn't list the capacity....at least I tried to help [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
