  1. I have been a Diesel guy for a lot of years and know from first hand experience that the low sulfur fuel does reduce the life of an engine. I don’t claim to know it all but it does have less lubrication quality causing Premature fuel pump and injector wear and causes your exhaust temps to skyrocket in some cases thus killing your turbo life. Everyone is correct with putting an additive with your fuel and a cheep transmission fluid does do the job fine. Not only will it add the lubricant back to the fuel the detergents in it will keep your injectors clean. I don’t recommend much in an Emissions

  2. You say that, but remember that Ford is building the Cargo and F-MAX in China (the world’s largest truck market) at the JMC heavy truck joint venture. Sales from Portugal to China, not shabby at all. In 10 years time, Ford Otosan has created a global footprint.

  4. These Otosan 'Fords' are indeed very impressive, and seem to have been done with little or no help from Dearborn. Though they are growing, they are still a relatively small regional builder. Long term I think they may need to align with a large global heavy truck manufacturer to stay viable.

  5. It's seems like just yesterday that I was standing between a new "Cool Power" 300-equipped R-model, and F-model. Where did all the years go? I feel no older than that day in 1973. .

  6. Been running our 1979 endt676 on pump diesel since the '80s, now into the ULSD were still running it on pump diesel, we don't add anything, just keeps running strong as ever. Pushing 600k miles, mostly local within a 15 mile radius. Lots of hours per mile, as it's a volumetric concrete mixer. Truck averages about 4mpg by the end of the year. My 1995 E7-350 has about 20,300 hours, same deal, but averages 2.5 mpg or less. (Again, it's a volumetric concrete mixer, so it racks up fuel usage on site) Many trucks on here are hobby trucks and get minimal use, so I'd recommend an algaecide, bu

  7. Apparently we have had ultra low sulphur diesel in Australia since 2009, I had no idea what you blokes are even talking about so had to do some googling Long and the short of it is that I have never had a drama and dont know of anyone having dramas I have never added anything but just straight diesel to the tanks and have never had a issue A bit like ethanol ULP, thats all I use and I add nothing and dont have any dramas even in small petrol engines So either Im the luckiest man alive or other people get caught up in the B.S.

  8. It was a learning process for sure. I was thinking I could adjust the arm to where I wanted it and put the actuator back on and all would good, but the pressure inside the turbo would overpower the actuator and let the arm move. Also the actuator gear has no internal stop in either direction , so the gear will move in either direction somewhat freely.

  9. That might be doable. I keep hearing that NAV and GM are eager to do more joint venture vehicles, so maybe...... Not that it means anything, but the best thing you can do to an old Scout is ditch the IH boat anchor V-8 and install a GM LS V-8!

  10. Love it! Be tempted to machine a little adjuster screw to set VGT travel limitation and a “give’r hell” cable, with a hand grab T-bar, for the big hill climb mode! Pull for full boost and slam it back home when the EGT’s hit 1,400 degrees.

  11. When I started driving in 2000 my Dad put me on with Geske hauling sand at first then they told Me bring a frame trailer the next day so I could haul hot mix. Ran with that truck a fair amount and it was a good runner. I had an 84’ 300/ 6 speed and ran right with him all day.

  15. I have an R model fire truck that is generally in good shape. There is some rust on the chassis and other underbody components. Has anyone used the rust encapsulating products like those sold by Eastwood. Do they do a good job of stopping the rust? My plan was to use this material then touch up the paint and follow it up with Waxoyl. What have other people done to preserve and freshen up under their trucks? It is a fire truck so access is limited to a lot of the chassis and it will all have to be done from underneath on a creeper. Any advice is appreciated.
