Standard text
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I am choosing standard text. Have a option to buy what seems to be a 1997 FL70 with a Cat 3126 300 hp motor with 270000 miles on it. Good shape good running. How many miles are these motors expected to go?
Auto Mechanic: Craig Manning, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago
Sorry for the delay, they are usually good for at least 750k as long as maintenance is done on time.
