Re: Ford '95 7.5L engine no good?

I have had two F350's with fuel injected 460's in them.

The first truck was an '89 with a 5 speed, dual exhaust, no cat, and 35" muds. I consistently got 11 mpg, in town, on the highway, empty or pulling a 20' boat. I sold it when it had 135000 leaks and never a problem except for putting new brushes in the alternator once.

The second truck is a '96 with a 5 speed and stock tires. The newer 460's (post '91 or '92 I think) are rated higher output. I have gotten 15 mpg on the freeway with this one. I would like to gut the cat, but my conscience won't let me. It's at 61k miles with no problems and no leaks.

Re: Ford '95 7.5L engine no good?

Our family always had F-250's or 350's 4X4's with 460's in them, until 94 when we started to buy diesels, but we still kept a couple of with gassers around. most of them we sold with around 150,000 miles. Our old beatter truck a 89 F-350 4X4 has 230,000 miles on it still runs and starts the first time you turn the key, but is very tired....

97 F350 4X4, 460=5spd, SRW, Reg cab
99 F350 4X4, 7.3L=6spd, DRW, SC
03 F350 FX4, 7.3L=6spd, SRW, Reg cab
03 F350 FX4, 7.3L=auto, DRW, SC
05 F350 FX4, 6.0L=auto, DRW, SC

Re: Ford '95 7.5L engine no good?

Personal experience: 1992 F-350 DRW, 2WD, E4OD, 4.56 gears, wheel-lift wrecker. Plenty of power, durable (290,000 miles at last check) engine, not-so-durable slushbox, actually rides pretty well for a 1-ton, VERY, VERY sensitive (like all I-beam Fords) to front-end wear.

Mileage is horrendous: one night of towing, with 2 LONG highway runs (loaded at ~60, returning empty at 65, cruise on both times) & relatively little city stop-and-go was a stupefying 3.8MPG.

Truck has a K&N in the stock airbox, a 3" cat-back with a turbo muffler (dumps ahead of RR wheels), otherwise stock.

My usual truck (1986 F-350, NA 6.9 diesel, T-19 4-speed, 400,000+ miles, 4.10 gears) got ~10 loaded & 15 empty. Even the 1987 GMC R-35 (TBI 454, TH-400, 4.10's, 380,000 miles, engine replaced at ~270,000) got 8-9 empty & 6-8 loaded. The F-550 rollback (PSD/6-speed, 4.88's) averages ~14MPG.
