A buddy of mine had a 1981 E-250 that had 420K+ when he finally had to junk it. He replaced 3 trannys, but never had to take the head off the thing.

Had a 92 ext cab that had 150k when I sold it. Ran great kid that bought it from me is still driving think it has about 170k now. Then I also had a 95 reg cab with the six and about 90k that was a real hot rod til a ******* pulled out in front of me and I totaled it. Man I miss both those trucks. They would do any thing I wanted them to and looked good doing it.

81 F150 with 167k miles. At least thats what I think it is, it could be 267k. Runs good, a little noisy but there is oil pressure!

Exclamation

'91 EFI with 129,000. Still runs strong as ever, but gas mileage is terrible these days. I'm hoping its just this insanely cold weather we've been having.

The rebuilt 300 in my 68 has about 4100 miles on it. To last , or not to last, that is the question. At 5k, I'm thinking of maybe switching to synth oil, but haven't decided yet... MK

94 EFI f-150 I6 219,000 and still purrs like a kitten. Ditto on the 150,000+ mile bit. Figure on freeze plugs, water pump, pan gasket and maybe alternator/starter. Then you can drive the engine for the second half of it's life. Mine got it's original spark plugs and cap/rotor replaced at 170,000 and the original clutch replaced at 199,000. BTW, I change the oil every 10,000 miles or so whether it needs it or not You can't hardly kill these engines unless you are literally trying to!

My 95 XLT 300 m5od just turned 150,000. Runs great. What items should I be on the lookout for?
