Not really sure how many miles are on mine. What I do know is it has triumphed through 52 years of VERY hard work, and gets driven about 2,300 miles a month from me with zero issues. 40 psi oil pressure at hot idle.

My '96 has got 177k on it now, and aside from a high idle she runs great. Can't tell if the CEL is on cause the light burned out!! she still loves to work though

This is COMBINED with a functional pcv system

When i ge tin the gas and the vacuum gets low it overwhelms the pcv
sold the truck to a close family member, who decided it would be a good ideato just add extra oil so he didnt have to keep adding it so often. He filled it up till it ran out the top. I asked him after i bought it back from him a short time later because the engine was filthy and oily. Apparently this freed up a stuck ring or something. Going forward the engine used no more oil

You all won't believe it but the 1993 F150 XL my grandpa uses on his turf farm just rolled over 480K on the ticker. Engine has never been opened. Uses about a quart and a half of 10W30 between oil changes (yearly). Was a fleet truck before the farm got ahold of it.

Gramps thinks the trans is original too - his boss never got any paperwork showing a rebuilt or reman unit installed. If so, that's gotta be a record for an E4OD but there's no way it's original and I told him so

The truck has an easy life - slow commutes on back roads to and from farm fields carrying fuel for the tractors.

Original timing gears, original everything. The ONLY non original part on that truck is a mechanical oil gauge I "helped" put on the truck when I was 10! That was 10 years and 80K ago. I don't think you'd want to open the engine up anyway, with all the dirt caked in the engine bay. The truck was very well taken care of by the Prince William County VA municipality, which I guess explains why it's lasted that long. Grandpa and I try to take care of it now, with regular oil changes, plus he drives like a grandpa.

One more cool story: when we were getting my '96 on the road the 'ol red 93 came to the house and we "borrowed" a bunch of electrical stuff (relays, diodes) to get mine running!
