Tossed an 86 cargostar with a 9.0/at545 couple years ago...like a 19k chassis that had a runway sweeper body. Those old big-inch v-8 diesels...8.2 detroit, perkins, 3208 cat...heard them all scream bloody murder trying to spin a few hale pumps while a fire mechanic for the navy. Dt360 auto in a 93' 4800 4x4 digger derrick...now that was one slow rig. Turbo did nothing for it! Many dt466's in various 47-4900's...excellent. Nice rig, 4 sure. Love the s-series in a class-8 with a 8v-92 detroit...sounds like the world is coming to an end as it pulls-up behind u!

I picked up the new 9.0l motor, it started and ran good. Next step is to drop it in and see what else fails! Haha

Cool...let us know!

I can't remember too much bad about that motor, cept maybe a few leaky rocker boxes. Saw one that had been blow'd up...bottom-end launched when a farmer had turbo'd a 1486 and it like overboosted at 4 psi I like the way those old non-turbo v's sound...gulp, gulp, gulp, popcorn-pop, gulp......

IH had that engine setup as a variable displacement plant for tractors like the 1486. It would run on 4 light load then go to all 8 under power. On 4, it really sounded wierd.

Hi,

We just purchased one of these for our ranch. I have yet to pick it up. Can anyone tell me an estimate of dry weight for this truck?

Thanks,

EK
