Ride: AU III XR8 Pursuit 250 ute

Location: Hobart
TAS, Australia

Was talking to the builders at my house this morning, he was driving in a huge old 1975 or 76 Ford F250. Was telling me he payed $7,500 for it, been through 3 engines already. It's licenced to carry 5 tonnes, but he carried 7.2 no problems. At this point I was presuming it was a big 351 or something, turns out there just 6 bangers. That's a fair load for an old 6 banger to lug around - 7.2 tone!

Bingo. Yanks had another range of 6's. The 170-200-221-250-3.9-4.0 6's we had here are the "small block" 6cyl. Yanks had the 300ci(4.9L) 6cyl.

For an engine of 4.9 lt , 7.2 tonne is a lot to lug around, esp if the engine is a petrol engine. It would definatly be working hard. If he has been thru 3 engines i would take it that the 7.2 wasn't without problems as stated, unless the car has been thru 3 engines since new, then i would say that's almost a non issue, considering the vehicles age and probably the million kms it might have travelled in it's life.

Cheers
