REOGasMackDiesel Posted April 26, 2013 Share Posted April 26, 2013 I have a 1953 REO 6by my wife bought me for my last birthday. Truck has spent and great deal of time sitting or running in place. Its 60yrs old and has about 2,500 miles on it according to the odo and paper work.I got it last fall so it only been ran for a total of 4 times twice before winter and twice now after winter. Seem to smoke a bit blue-ish smoke so oil. I was hope after a few runnings it would clear up, So far I'm not sure it will maybe it needs more run time on it. It don't smoke at idle its once you rev it up it smokes. Parts seem limited for the REO-331 I6 gold comet engine, oil change and tune up stuff can be found yet. Starters, generators, fuel pumps, and carb kits are around. Engine rebuild stuff seems all obsolete. Not sire what oil has been ran through it over the years but I'm guess cheap crap.Fires right up and runs great like a low mileage engine. Holds fantastic oil pressure 58psi idle and 63psi reved up. Run it some more ? Change out the oil ? Try not to worry about and drive it ?Mike Quote 1953 REO M48.1962 GMC 3000.1969 AMC AMX-390.1983 AMC Eagle SX/4.1988 AMC Jeep Comanche.
