How many miles on your 7.3??

I'm curious to hear from those of you with high mileage on your 7.3, so feel free to step up and do a little bragging! I am looking for guys that still have the original motor, and have not had to have an overhaul or something like that. Also, please feel free to include what maintenance habits have contributed to the engine's long service life.

99 F250 cc bone stock with 308,877 miles. Tranny rebuilt twice. One @ 217,000 and the 2nd one @ 296,000. Worked hard and towed many a goosenecks. Have replaced usual: water pump,belts and other regular wear items. No secret to the maintenance, just regular oil/fuel filter changes and drive the hell out of it.

99 f250 cc 308,000 miles and counting.

2001 F350 C/C = 178,000 miles. CPS and trans rebuild. Just change filters
1997 F350 C/C = 288,000 miles when sold. CPS, fuel pump, vac pump, no transmission problems and lots of towing.
2004 F350 C/C dually = 235,000 miles and still going strong but head gaskets, all 8 injectors and EGR cooler have all been replaced. Not a single hint of an issue with the transmission, pulls over GCW quite often and does it with ease.

Only 69,000 miles. Preparing to upgrade to Fleetrite ELC and a coolant filter. If the new Scorpion is as great as they say it is, and if Ford starts offering a manual tranny, I may think about trying to convince the wife to let me get a new one.


Until then, I am happy - actually thrilled - with mine. I try to keep my eyes open for a spare engine and transmission to stash in the garage, but I have not found one yet...

2002 F250 XLT 4WD SC SB with 6 Speed and Manual Shift Transfer Case. Pillar pod-o-gauges, Warn Premium Hubs, AIS, Fumoto, Edge 3 leveling kit on the front (with adjustable track bar), 4 blocks on the rear, Eaton Posi, Bilstein 5100s and 285 X 75 X 16 BFG MTs all around. Oil pan coated with POR-15. Fleetrite ELC and Dieselsite coolant filter (plus new water pump). New O-Rings on the injectors.

Hey all, thanks for the replies. This is really encouraging although not surprising. The replies above are the reason I wanted the 7.3. I hope to see the kind of mileage out of mine that you guys are getting. Mine's still a baby though with only 80k on the clock. I just put the AIS on it today as the first step towards making it go the distance. I'm gonna roll with 5k oil change intervals because I don't work it hard. I'm using the Motorcraft 15-40 oil w/Motorcraft oil filters. Have you guys had good luck with this oil?
