Tom, is your odometer not working? If the speedometer still works then I'm quite confident the odometer CAN be fixed.

Andy -
Speedo works fine. I'm sure the odometer is just gummed up but honestly it doesn't bother me that much.

I have so many other projects to do on this truck. The odometer thing is way down the list.

Amy recently sold the little 82 pup I'd sold her several years ago. She txt me yesterday and said it had 342,000 miles on it when sold. Still running. I bought it with about 140,000miles back in 1996.

Hitting 311K soon! Engine was rebuilt at 298K after a stuck valve - transmission and differential are all original, still operating nice and quiet. :D

That is pretty amazing having so many miles on the original transmission. I would guess it might be some kind of record.
Did you rebuild it yourself?

if you're referring to IsuzuFaster, he has a gas engine. They're easier on the transmission than a diesel. Plus he has a 4speed which were better than the 5speeds anyways. Good to see you back in the forum, Reid.
