before you ask "how many miles?"

here is a pic of the speedometer of a truck in for a transmission rebuild. as far as I know it is still the original engine, has some blow by but still starts, runs and pulls great.
it is a 2002 F350 crew cab dually western hauler, so realy low gears and a lot of revolutions on that engine

quick math, cruising 60 mph at 2200 rpm that engine has turned 1,359,864,000 revolutions (if I figured it right)
that is a lot of trips up and down for the pistons.
gotta love these engines

Sure it is an '02? That doesn't look like the speedo on my '02 F350. Matter of fact, I have a digital (flourescent green digits) odometer.

Regardless, great to see 600K+ on a hard-working rig.

Good catch. 02 should be a digital read out.

haha Ford needs to make up their mind... The OBS had digital read outs but then they went back to analog in 99.

Thanks, guess you learn something new everyday

Impressive, I have a friend with three 7.3L, one with 440K, another with 280K or so and a sweet one he just scored with only 38K has maybe 50K now.

That 618K is a lot of driving......seats probably need to be replaced :-)

That's very reassuring to a guy who's ponied up for sticks to make the truck last another 300K.

I have 102,358 on my truck, and that is the most miles I've ever put on any car or truck.
