I recently purchased a 1750 4x4 with a V-8 Diesel. I have been trying to find out what model engine it is. Any suggestions?

Thank you!

There were 3 V8 diesel series offered in those trucks, and they were 549 cubic inch. There was a D165 and a D170 and a 9.0L The year will tell you which it is, although there are probably some other clues. The 9.0 was the last of the three, I think starting in 1980. They are good for about 5000 hours, and then the pistons need to be replaced. Then they will go another 5000 hours.

You can probably order the manual from Navistar or from binderbooks.com, but it won't be cheap. Worth the money, though.
