Re: What can you tell me about a Ford 6.6L?
i drove mine tens of thousand of miles. had the at545 trans which didn't help at all. she was underpowered, but at about 300,000 without a rebuild when i sold her she was still going strong.
it's a great starting diesel. my block heater stopped working, but she'd still fire up even when it was down to 10 degrees. She might have to crank for 30 seconds or so, but she'd always start even on the coldest days.
in the summer she'd fire up in half a second. One thing i wish i had done is turned up the hp and the govenor, but i didn't know how back then.
i think i got 8 or 8.5 mpg most of the time. Flat out she would only run about 60 mph....but i drove her with the throttle all the way to the floor pretty much all th etime. Even had a special "stick" that i put between the dash and the pedal to hold her to the floor when my foot got tired...dont' do that, it's dangerous.
it's a long lasting motor...not too much power, decent fuel economy
