S-Series DT466 Purchase Advice
Posted 04 August 2012 - 02:57 PM
Would appreciate feedback on things I should be looking for relative to the transmission and electric shift/and or engine. Truck is less than 26,000 GVWR.
I am looking for an S-series to restore and for light use.

For testing----you should be able to hear it shifting at the rear axle with ignition on and engine not running.
I am a fan of the two speed axles in this size truck.
Big item to look at is condition of tires-----they have skyrocketed lately
HP rating on DT---466 will be on configuration sticker on top of valve cover. Have looked at several-----but ended up with a pretty clean old F700 w/ 429 factory propane. It will probably haul me on home!!!!
