besides dually rear ends what is the difference in trucks? ive owned a 3/4 ton but never a 1 ton and i might buy this 91 single axle 1 ton. is it just a heavier leaf pack in the rear? thanks!:butt:
Remove the oil filler cap when the engine is running to check for any blow-by. If clear and the auto trans shifts smooth with no slip then it should be okay if the price is reasonable. These engines are pretty tough if well maintained.i found a 91 350 auto for sale that i want to get. the odo is stopped at 212k. it has a rebuilt head which makes me thing when the bottom end will go.
This one was pretty bad IMO. It only had 170,000 miles. I have seen cummins with much higher miles with no noticeable blow-by.I've seen lots of diesels do that and they all have ra a long time. Most will have some blow by, but if it looks like your exhaust when you stand on it, thats bad!
I wouldn't say no just because of blow by, but if it had other "issues" then it would be a turnoff.
