We parked next to a truck ambulance pulling a enclosed trailer with a Nostalgia Super Stock class A body Mopar at the NMCA finals at Indy last weekend. Looked like a good combo. Husband, wife, 3 dogs.
Move straight west. 24 acres here still in Illinois. The state sucks. But it sucks worst the closer you are to Chi Town..
Shop is a rental, I'm not a rich Michigan guy like you, Illinois steals it as quick as I earn it
So no 10 acres with a 50 x 100 shop like I want!!
Junk it sell it or put a Cummins in it but do not wast money on that 6.4.. unless its a perfect truck except the 6.4 cut and run....
Your looking at future nightmare.Not trying to hijack this thread (guess I am really).
Dogg, when you say the 6.4 has oiling, fuel and water issues. Do you know of a way to fix these issues? Is there a certain company making parts to correct these issues??
Here is my take on the 6.4, which means absolutely nothing. The trucks that they put these in simply don't have the real estate to keep them cool. They need bigger radiators and intercooler and more air flow over them.
My plan is to put a better radiator, Intercooler and a cowl hood on mine after rebuilding it. Keep an eye on egt's, change the oil religiously and don't idle the truck extended amount of time.
Please save me the headache of doing this if it is just a waste of time. I know the general consensus is these engines are junk. I think if the same amount of effort was put into these as the 6.0 it would be superior to the 6.0. Again, I am far from a diesel mechanic. I am just stating my opinion here based on research I have done on the 6.4. Please correct me if I am way off base.
