I have the opportunity to buy a Freightliner FL60 with a p-pumped 8.3 and a 7speed manual tranny. I would like to get some general thoughts from you guys that know what you are talking about. The truck peaked my interest becuase a recon it would be easy to turn the thing up, although I am not sure how the rest of the truck would appreciate that. I think it makes around 200 horse the way it sits now and has around 75k miles on it.

Also on a side note, what are the Gross weights on a rig like this?

Thanks,
Andy

You can't go wrong on that engine and tranny setup. Eaton 7 speed has a nice low reverse and 1st. They made a few 5 and 6 speeds, they are not as good to back a heavy load with in my opinion. The 8.3 is a dandy of a medium duty engine.

Look for the sticker in the door jam. There are so many chassis combinations that its hard to make a guess what it would be rated for.
