    04 Pete 379X

    Thought i would chime in. 379 model was built from 1987- 2007 with the last 379 legacy being delivered to TWX out of two rivers wis. I've owned 3 of them. Thats when they really made trucks, with American Classic interior, now days its American Plastic interior. My 98' 379 short hood rust free west coast truck,loaded for the Mackinac bridge crossing in September. Slick
  11. 6.2s where built tough 4bolt mains, roller rockers, double roller timing chain, just didn't have the diesel technology we have today, spent thousands of dollars on playing with them to 50-75 more horse, now days spend $600-1000. plug in and Wallah 150-200 hundred horse. Ahhh the olds days Slick
  12. I grew up with the 4.3s,5.7s 6.2s. Agreed with the rite tuning they could sing pretty good, ( in that era) 83 Ciera 4.3 diesel got 165k miles b4 blown head gasket, 81 cutlass 5.7dsl 325k on her tired but ran well, 82 GMC Jimmy 4x4 6.2dsl ( only yr of the red block) 154k. sold for new 89 F250 4x4 7.3 dsl. Total slug 61k miles leaking head gasket... Yeah good bye. Hello 5.9 cummins never looked back have 6 of them all 4x4 dodges 71k miles to 378k never opened up. Slick
  13. Be sure to inspect barrel the shaft goes into thats what gets scored up and can cause them to leak Slick
