We lost a couple engines;;; I allways thought that the engine should last 100.000 miles; The machanics at both gerages said the same thing... (this will be disputed) The gas engines are not designed To pull all/most of the time; That"s were the diesel comes in, That engine is designed to pull Long stroke + slow burning fuel It pushs all the way down the stroke; Buy a main line coach and if you plan on keeping it Buy diesel You won't be dissapointed, Happy travels;; Life is good

A couple engines?... on the same rig?
That sounds excessive, what motor do you have?

Take your time....everybody wants to push it. I'm on my fifth gasser, no engine, no trans problems. Hills I take it easy, no rush. Gassers will pull all day long, within their limits. I swap MH's to go larger, my old ones are still on the road. "Old ones", I still have an old one, 1988 with 80, 000 plus miles.
