339,000 from an 86 bronco i bought from my bro in law, when i replaced the leaky block with a new one. I sold that old block to my shop,dura bond for head and block specs. when they tore the valve cover off, and i saw the muck underneath, i was suprised it still ran. thats when i decided i wont even let my brother in law, change the air in my tires!

Bronco had 165,000 when the wife overheated it... still ran for 3 months with the mains knocking though. Got a motor in it from an econoline van now, salvage yard motor, not sure how many miles it had on it when I got it but I'm at 179 now total and running great. My 95 has 145 on it and runs good, just blows the valve cover gasket in the back every time I run it at 85+ mph on the interstate for long periods... especially if I'm towing something. Must have some blow-by coming from somewhere. That sure is a pain to change on an EFI engine.

95 F150, M50D, 4.9 - 127K and still runs like new. Replaced clutch at 60K. Backing big boats uphill into tight spaces will do that. Replaced brake pads once, u-joints and radius arm bushings I tow boats and cargo trailers all over N. Texas. I really want a new truck but this one will just not give up. Looks like I'll have to wait two years when my son turns 16. I'll have an excuse to get a new one because he'll get this one.

'90 F-150 with 202K miles. Greta compressions, burns no oild. Except for possible fuel pump problem it is a great truck. Paid $600 for it to an electricain company at about 180K miles, put in a windshield and elbow grease to clean it up. Should hit 300 K.

I just turned 170,000 last week and still has no engine work! well new alt. but that don't count. I put on 20k+ a year! Can't kill the engine, thing wont die! I beat the thing from mudin to street racing. It'll never die!! I hope to hit 400k. I think if i keep using synthetic oil, K&N performance gold filters and changin it all @5k I'll do it.

94 F150xl

Move over Toyota boy!
Real men drive FORDS!!!
