cheech147 Posted May 16, 2010 Share Posted May 16, 2010 I'm looking at buying an 89 U model with a 285 engine and 5 speed transmission. I drove a a U model for years with a 350 and 5 speed. Hauling freight around the 45,000 lb. range it did o.k. Of course it wouldn't pull the hills like a 425 Cat, but it did fine with other trucks on the road. Was wondering if anyone out there is familiar with the 285's and how they perform. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
