Edit- These are kilometers obviously...
You must have a pretty good camera to have zoomed in and get a nice pic like that of your mileage. Mine says 569,232km right now but I can't get a visible pic of it. Damn Kodak camera

Holy old thread revival! 495000 when I pulled the 6.9L out and put in the Cummins. The poor old IDI was worn out like a cucumber in a convent. Hardly any compression left, but it still ran once you got it started. I could turn the crank by hand.

Does "i know of one" work? lol But seriously, i know a guy who has one in a s-series truck that went all over the western US putting together pivots, fully documented 660k or so miles, 84 6.9. Says it takes 2 full cans of ether to start it in July, and thats the only time it will start lol. However, he also says hes never done a damn thing to it other than change the oil every 5k. That includes pump and injectors, i asked. Also, he said it governed at 62 and he drove 62 whenver it would do it.

One in the 79 i supposed to be 385k or so, but i know at least the left head has been off. And the one in the 92 cavitated at 130k, but has 267k on it now and will whip any stock 7.3psd

my 88 has 494,000 on it and has never been apart except for 1 water pump, 1 alternator, 2 sets of glow plugs, 3 starters, 3 sets of injectors, and 3 injector pumps.

Wow, five years ago I was at 121k and I am just rolling over 160k now. I thought I drove my truck more than that. I just got another motor that runs better, if I get the job I am interviewing for this week, I will be doing some work to it before it goes in.

Hardly a record, but my '84 was @ 300K even when I sold it. Still ran like new. Still running the original injectors. IP replaced @ 200K.
Other than some of the basics, water pump, glow plugs and controller, no real engine work ever needed. C6 was untouched except for a front pump seal about the same time as the IP. Should have kept that truck.
