    I got 150,000 still running strong on my 90' TBI 350, though I think it runs off of oil /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif. Oh, my honda also has 160,000 and burns no oil /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif.

    Its not mine(yet) but my buddy's dad has a 76 dually 454 with 300,000. Rusted like you wouldn't believe and a couple sticky valves. And of course she runs off oil. Its funny cause he has an 80s dually that is in almost perfect condition with low miles. Neither is driven anymore.

    And the thing that upsets me is that you're the only one that has less miles than me /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    It ain't a Blazer or even a Chevy. But I've got an '80 F-250HD, 4x4 with a 300 I6 that just turned 350,000 miles, and as far as I know, the only thing done to it was a head swap that I did due to a couple of burnt exhaust valves. The head was off a 90 and it had over 180K on it. The 'ol beast should hit 400,000 sometime next year. Rollin', rollin', rollin'.

    87K5 w/stock engine 301,000 mi. Have replaced injectors, water pump, starter and temp sensor. Thats it. It has not been babied. I pull a 31' camper and a heavy 20' enclosed trailer. Cooling sys is modified: 6.5 diesel radiator, Caddy fan blade, HD fan clutch, low gearing and Mobil-1 all have helped I think.
