I have a friend that drives for Kraft with a Volvo 13L. He told me when thing are just right, he can get 8.4 but not very often. I like my 93 Pete with a N14 (430) and 13 speed for the farm. I don't like the 3.55, I wish it was a 3.70 or 3.90 with my tall 24.5s. I usually go more over 80K than under. The way I drive, I get around 4.5 mileage wise but it is mostly short hauls. I have an 1988 IH 8300 with a 855 (350) and a 9 speed. It has a 18' Kann alum box and I pull a 550 Brent wagon. I usually gross 85-90K and it will come out of the field better than my Pete. It has a 3.90 with tall 24.5s. They both have around 600K on them. I drove a 9500 GMC 238 with a 5+2 speed, hauling cattle and grain in my younger days. It had a tag and would get stuck very easy. I had to burn my way away from the hog dock in Chicago once but it was better than pulling doubles where you can't back up.

I very much enjoy your posts. Thank you and be careful.
