not much except for a medium duty truck.

What's your purpose in asking?

They are reasonably dependable but that is about all that can be said good about them. heavy engine for the amount of CID and power.

If your question is because you bougth a truck with one in it, then if it runs good use it.

Ok, it's a fair engine but it's not a reason for upping the price. Pretty base engine that will probably run a lot of miles if it's maintained. Won't be a power house but will get the job done.

Hope that helps.

Thank you do you think 1500 is a fair price for a 1986 f650 with a 370 wth a granny four tranny running and driving

HydroDog is starting off with a positive reputation.
The 370's are good motors but be prepaired that 8mpg will be the best you will ever get and 5-6 mpg will be more of the norm if you have a load.
