Filled Block and Occasional towing

Getting closer to finally getting the motor. I've talked to Charlie and he says it "shouldnt" be an issue as he pulls a skidsteer with his. Anybody else have a filled block and pull occasionally?

There is a possibility of pulling a 10k lb travel trailer a few times a yr a max of about 80 miles one way. Also gotta do this soon:

roughly 6-7k lbs



What about a secondary oil cooler for piece of mind?

Re: Filled Block and Occasional towing

Id run an oil temp gauge and see how the temps do. If the temps get too high add some sort of oil cooler.

Re: Filled Block and Occasional towing

Add an oil temp and water temp gauge if it were me, and i plan on getting a decent size A/O cooler and plumb it in the return line from my bypass oil filter that dumps back into the crankcase anyway. Advance has some nice cheap 1-2^2 coolers

Are you also moving the heater hose back on the pass. side and running an extra line from the driver's side like Charles? I notcied the other day that Excursions run similar to that from the factory, they have a nice steel crossover tube from the driver's side.

Truck is nice but I hear the owner has been called a "cockshucker" a time or two

You move the heater hose from the front of the pass side head to a port farther back and tie it in with a port from the driver side head to increase coolant flow
