Cool What's wrong with the maxforce????

.

I've heard you guys post it was junk before and I saw there was some kind of settlement??

I found a perfect bus to make into a tow vehicle/motorhome but it has a maxforce and I figured I better ask before bidding!!

Is it as bad as the ford 6.4, can it be bulletproofed, or just run, run away fast??

Thanks Guys.

They went for insane money, didn't even consider risking it.

They had 2 buses and a handful of cab chassis with maxforce all too expensive for my project.

Thanks for the quick reply G!!!!

The Navistar Maxxforce 7 EPA 07 isn't bad but the EPA 10 has a lot of issues burning up DPFs.


Now when Ford got their hands on the Navistar engine, the first thing they do is reprogram the ECM for more power and the consumers suffer with multiple engine issues.

The 6.0 was rated at 325HP, the 6.4 was rated at 350HP IIRC, not much of a jump, Ford would never replace an engine with one that has less horse power, 350HP had to be the designed HP level for that engine. Ford always uses their own electronics.

One of the biggest of problems with the 6.4 is Navistar went with Siemens for the fuel system which is a POS. It was the Siemens fuel system on any diesel that I know of. If it's not a Bosch fuel system I don't want it. Ford stepped up to the plate for the 6.7 and went with Bosch.

I'd say the 6.4 biggest problems are the fuel system, cavatation in the front cover, weak pistons and lack of oiling for the valve train.

I've worked on plenty of these engines and they have put a lot of food on the table.

Too much, too far and to be honest after talking to Gdog several times, I'm going to wait for a 6.7 unit to convert.

So it's all yours, and I'm scared of buying a salvage vehicle after all the horror stories from hurricanes.

Well I didn't get a bucket truck at the auction again today
So that still MUST come 1st before an ambulance!!

I need a new tow vehicle, I'm running for points next season and I'm too old for a tent or sleeping in trailer.
So I have had zero luck getting a small RV with a big diesel, so I'll build one myself!!!
