We had an 8v92ta silver in our 1979 Ford dump truck we had a few years back.  I was only about 10 when we sold it at auction and i remember just about crying.  IT WENT FOR 1,750 BUCKS!!  Now the new CLT9000 we just purchased has an 8v92TA silver also.  Is there anything special or any tricks i should know about this engine besides only run 40W oil?  Also, does anyone know where i can get some 9G00 injectors for an 8v92? 

Thanks guys

I've got an 8V92 Silver in my '78 359 that has been a great engine. The biggest downside that I 've found with  this engine is the large amount of teasing you have to be able to take to drive one. I was told when i first bought this truck to make sure to slam my fingers in the door when I get in and drive it like I'm trying to get even with it. To a certain extent I think that is good advice. On the serious side an 8V92 that is tuned right will run with anything on the road and outrun alot of them. I've always gotten between 5-6mpg if I drive sensibly , but with the power they can make sometimes it's hard not to want to hotrod a little, then I get around 3. Have fun with your new truck.         Mark

I drove one up in the steep mountains of B.C hauling 60 tons plus of logs and it never let me down once and when you needed the power it was there:)

I am pretty knowledgeable on diesel engines.  Especiallly light and mid duty cummins, navistars (powerstrokes), 3208 cats, etc.  with general stuff.  But what do you mean when you sa 100mm and "98's"?    are you talking injectors?  Like the cummins injectors are 5x.014" for example.  how do Detroit measure their injectors?  or are you guys talking about something else?  Sorry if its a dumb question but i've learned that a dumb question is a question unasked.

Thanks

Get on Ebay motors and search 9225 injectors......All the fuel you will ever want and then some.....Just watch your Pyrometer and coolant temps.They will almost move as fast as your fuel gauge.

Oh ok thank you.  I looked up some info on 9225 injectors and while there is none on ebay right now, i was able to find that Detroit does measure injectors in mm.  and it looks like the 9G00 are 100 mm and the 9225 are 125mm injectors.  What EGT's can this truck see??  It will be bobtailed alot and pulling light loads.  Will the 9225 injectors heat up the truck alot without a full load?  what power do those put out?  (must be over 450)

Thanks!
