I am looking at a 94 7.3 turbo idi w/ 162,000. I am concerned about cavitation. I read an article that said it is a real problem. Cyl. begin leaking around 150,000 if not treated with SCSs. I am going to test the coolant and hope it is OK. My only concern is the time it eas not protected.
ALL diesel engines must be treated to guard against cavitation.
none of them are exempt from cylinder wall attack.it should be well studied by all diesel owners.
for diesel equipped trucks,this means starting with the 6.9l to the 6.7l. Cavitation Article
