    Give the E-7s a hard look. Pretty much the same as the E-6. Same 4.875 bore as the E-6 but a half in longer stroke 6.5in instead of 6.0 and buttress bolts in the side of the block to keep the crank from walking. The 427 that this one has is 1560tq. Same as most tractors on the highway now. Most of em are still around 450/1550/1650. Injectors and turbo will get ya close to 600. There's a tri-axle dump running around south jersey with 700hp. Antrim in Greencastle pa had it on the dyno. Here's what wakes em up for 400$ + oversize injectors at 175 a pop. And a 600$ 75mm bw turbo

    Gives it full rack travel from the get go. Plugs into the Gov housing on the back of the pump. Needs a pyro with stock turbo. With the big 1.32 housing you can keep your foot in it all day and the pyro won't go above 1000

    S475 vs stock turbo. Avg 7.00mpg across the board. Sometimes more sometimes a bit less

    We had a '73, single screw with manual steering. Steering was really good on the highway, not so pleasant around town.

    We pulled a short dump trailer with it for a while. If you got out of whack backing up, you'd have to pull up and get right. No way you could spin the wheel fast enough to correct it.
     
    cke and Tug Toy Thank this.

    I think it's more comfortable you have more room you can sleep while you're getting unloaded you can take a nap if you want to if you go farther than you thought you were going you could stay in the truck. For example Peterbilt or a Freightliner or Kenworth or WS that has a big cam and has air ride and all that good stuff. And it will have nice big fuel tanks on it so you can cruise comfortably until you get back to your fueling locations. As for me at wall work trucks it's importand when you can change it over to high-flow if you wanted to and then that's a good big cam.
