Re: F700 370/6.1 HP rating???
is that 87 a carbed motor or efi?
I believe the older ones were rated at 160hp with a 4bbl. They really aren't a bad motor, we have one in a old fuel truck, with a 5/2 combo. It will actualy run 70mph all day long(4000rpm) with a full load of 2000 gallons(around 30K gross). personaly, I think it has more power than our kodiak with a 3116 cat, of course our DT466 trucks blow the doors off both though..
Of course if you realy wanna talk about what a 370 will do.. way back in the day we had a cabover tractor with a 370, backed by a 5x4. I recall riding in it as a kid with the lowboy and our D9 on the back... :O
