    Just one truck, and it is a 1981 F-350 with the 351m, put an oil pump and new bearings in it. I also stop driving my trucks when i notice the oil pressure drops to nothing, can't say that my employees would do the same. I'm not bashing dakota's just saying that is a very light duty truck to put a plow on, and we all know hard plows are on front end parts.

    Yeah we stopped when the pressure dropped. All 3 of them lost pressure due to sludge clogging up the oil pick up. We maintain our trucks pretty good so that left a very bad taste. 2 of them were inline 300's, and 1 was a 302. All of them lost pressure around the 60K mile mark. The inline 300 was a beast for towing because of the long stroke. It was by far more powerful than the 302, 351, 4.6 and our current 5.4. The new mod motors are pigs. Eat alot of fuel and have very little power :cry:

    Also that blizzard plow isnt a "commercial" grade plow if you will. Thats more of a homeowner's plow. It is electric operated. It doesnt look very heavy but it appears to be dragging down the front of that dakota quit a bit. Our meyer is very heavy but it doesnt phase our K2500. We get very little snow here so it doesnt get used hardly at all.
