Long live the 7.3L Powerstroke, ford dropped the ball after the 7.3

i dont think they dropped the ball, just had some bad luck. The 6.4 would be saving them if it werent for the emmision crap givin em crappy fuel mileage

If it wasn't made by Navistar the fords would still have a great engine. The 6.0and 6.4 are terrible, I wouldn't keep one if you gave it to me. Ford needs to put a CAT or a Cummins in their trucks.

the 7.3 was made by navistar.. and you will never see a Cat or Cummins in one from the factory. But you will see a Ford built diesel engine in 2010.

Thats true however the new aluminum haeds and different turbo from what the 7.3 had are big problems

In english please?:laugh: No powerstrokes have aluminum heads...only d-maxs.

:confused: All I know is that I wouldn't own either one. I run all Cummins and they have never let me down. My buddies have D-maxs and newer Powersmokes and they are always havin trouble. The older ones like yours are bulletproof though!

And thats fine! Its your choice. I personally would own a 03 6.0 powerstroke! Some would call me crazy for that!but i know how to use them, and know how to fix em pretty easy. To each his own! Its great to have choices!

Thats whats great is that there is than one choice!! But from what i am watching on TV right now GM may be going under!! Why did you sell out of the lawn side? Are you still doing the lighting?

TXNSLighting
08-10-2008, 10:51 PM
I dont think Gm will go under, they may get close but i doubt it, now chrysler...

I just couldnt stand it anymore, i didnt like it, theres SO much cheap competition around here that it just wasnt worth it anymore. Yep still doing and loving lighting! That is my true passion! I cant ever get enough of it. Its good to find that thing your actually happy about doing.

I'm getting about the same way with the maint side of my biz but I have a great crew so I will keep it going as long as I dont have too many issues with employment.

yeh employees is another thing with the lawn and landscape side. I just hate everything about it. Lighting i need two guys tops, and i can be super picky with em. you can get a much different breed of employee when your in a more upscale job situation. or whatever im trying to say.

i just bought a 92 f150 custom with 230000. the tranny slamms into gear alittle but the engine is fine. i got it for 1200. i was useing a 01 ranger with the 3.0 and the 5.0 in the f150 is awesome. I cant even feel the trailer. I like your truck.
