Miles are not nearly as important as how those miles got there and the maintenance the engine received over those miles. If my truck had 278K, I would expect it to last at least another 100k. But if Joe down the street had 278k on his, I'd expect it to go into the dumper any day now.I'm looking at at truck with 278k.
Or longer:thumbsup: A friends 02 also has over 800,000 miles. Funny thing they both have been chipped since new. Guages, and fs2500 by pass filtration along with the chips installed almost right away. PMR rods must not be too bad, forged would have been more reassuring.depends on the usage and how well the engine was taken care of. With proper maintenance and if its not abused, it will last as long as you want to own in. Anywhere from 500,000 to 800,000 miles.
Yes it is single, we put it back to stock before I purchased the vehicle. If there was no cutting on the frame, etc the vehicles were sold to employees or went to auction. Employees could buy new vehicles on A Plan or if used they were offered as “used” on B Plan. They don’t have B plan any longer. Used to be a good savings discount.How did that work out? Your '99 should have come with a single mass flywheel. 😕
Sorry don’t really know what I am talking about. I thought some dual mass were used in ‘02/‘03?? We were looking at Drive belt and auto tensioner Reliability issue’s when running the extended idle testing. I retired end of’01 so I lost track of the outcome of the testing. Crank reversal’s were a potential concern and wear issues on the internals of the belt tensioner. We ran these tests to determine if we needed to upgrade belt tensioner internals. We didn’t see any issues.Don't understand. The 94-97 Powerstrokes with manual tranny came with a dual mass flywheel from the factory. All 99 and later trucks used a single mass flywheel.
