    Hi,

    guys I’m looking at this truck it’s a 2000 kenworth t600 with a little over a million on the miles.

    how are these engines can these go maybe another 200-300k before a rebuild since it has already one mill on the odometer

    this truck is in auction what would you pay maximum for it?

    things I see is air compressor needs changed and ac compressor as of visual check.

    It’s a 10 speed
    Can’t remember the ratio

    but attached is pics and I drained some oil for oil sample that’s attached as well.

    Nice is it stock? How does it pull uphill loaded?

    Stock,im afraid to do anything to it that will mess it up.
    Will drop a two or three gears fully loaded cause tthere is big drop in the rpm every time i shift,a 13 speed will be nice.

    Ours is a 1998 Ford Louisville with a 475 6TS.

    Over a million miles of hard use. Almost 39,000 hours. Three transmissions. A snapped drive shaft which also destroyed a 46,000 front and rear diff.

    Did a lot of highway, now is a lot of short trips, idling, heavy haul.

    This year I put a turbo and 6 injectors in it with a wiring harness. Bumped the tune a bit to 525 hp.

    This engine is still working good.

    It could go another couple hundred thousand or it could be blowing oil out by the gallon on the first load.
