Question 1997 Emission Compatible 7.3 Engine in my 1995

I'm curious as what's going on here. My truck was built April 1995 so the engine had to of been built no later than that date. It says on the engine sticker that it meets 1997 emissions standards but am surpised to see this in my 95'. It also says "This engine is obd II excempt" so obviously the engine knew it wasn't going into a 1996 or newer truck.

Is this just an engine that met the 1997 specs but they started putting them in way early than required? Thanks for any info

Also, It says 225 horsepower at 3,000rpm I though the 1995's were only 215? It doesn't show the torque.

That means the motor was replaced with a 97' model is all.

Or just that valve cover was replaced.

So, This is what I was thinking to. The motor must have been replaced sometime during original warranty period. I wonder if ford would of changed the odometer reading. There is not any sticker in the door jam that suggests any alterations of the odometer so they must of just left it alone. hmm

I doubt the valve cover was replaced. There was virtually no maintenance done to this engine at all (until I got it). Doesn't the 225 hp engines have 450 ft lbs of torque?

I dont think even Ford can reset the odometer, because the odometer isn't designed to only show mileage for the motor, but the whole truck, transmission, susepension, frame, body, etc. Adjusting it just because you replace the motor I'm pretty sure is still against the law.

If you think it was replaced under warranty period, Ford would have record of it still. You can go into any Ford dealer and they can look up everytime it has been in a Ford dealer, whether it was at yours, or another dealer.

Im pretty sure it is against the law, Good luck proving it though. Its wierd because you're not supposed to roll back an odometer for obvious reasons. But you can buy a junkyard dash and install it? Go figure that one. Also, it's probably only against the law if it's fraudulent. Like you sell it after or do it for insurance purposes or whatever.

Other than that, I really doubt anybody would care.

Yeah, you have a point on mileage for the whole truck etc. Here in Missouri though I'm pretty sure you can legally roll back the mileage if you go through the proper legal channels & place a sticker in the door jam that reflects the change. I really don't know much about it though.

I just checked my vin autocheck from when I bought the truck 2/1/14 & it says there were no mileage issues.

Thanks for pointing me to ford & having them check it out. That makes good sense & we'll see what they have to say here in the next few days.

I doubt that Ford will have any records on a 20+ year old truck even if they did the work themselves.

The best thing is the check the engine serial number and see if you can find when it was manufactured by the serial number. The serial number for the engine will be located on the block next to the oil filter header.

On the odometer it is Federal Law that they can't turn it back and has nothing to do with state laws and with any vehicle over 100,000 miles everything on the odometer becomes iffy.

BTW, it says that because the TRUCK is OBD-II exempt. Nothing to do with model year. It's OBD-II exempt because it's over 8500 lb GVW, and it's a diesel.

I know its not illegal to install a new junkyard dash because if yours fails, they would rather you install one to continue keeping track of mileage. But like funtastic said, you have to make note of it.

Here in California, the title has a spot under odometer that says something like "Odometer reading is not accurate" Or something like that, and you have to explain why. I'm guessing for things like that.
