85 Ford 6.9 Diesel Pulling 99 Cummins 4x4




What do you think about this video?

Adamz678: 460s are even bigger piles of sh*t. I would rather have a 6.9.

mark cargill: ford pullin a dodge, gotta love it. at the end of the out of vehicle video you can hear those pipes singin :D love it

NathansBackwoods: @85raminator, yeah, my brother did it to his 01 ford and im putting one into my 78, i know that it was to only thing at the time, i was just stating it, but that would be great if you could choose your own engine for your pickup.

countryboy77351: Assuming thats an F250 your around 9-10,000lb of tow capacity, a F150 of the era was rated at 6000. 5300 is nothing for one. Even with that Dodge you were still within what it was built to handle.

IDIDieselJohn: If you had 4.10 with the C6, your top speed would be 65 @ 3300RPM hitting the governor. You can't even get any stock gearing tall enough to cruise in those RPM's at that speed. (not original anyways) tallest gears you had for these trucks were 3.55 and at 65 with the C6 you'd be doing around ~ 2200RPM @ 65MPH.

nvfd103: @CSXtrackworker so your willing to hook up to my truck then?

raremountainbear: That trailer is overloaded.

85raminator: @NathansBackwoods its not a daunting task to swap a 4bt or 6bt into an old ford, and you have to keep in mind up until late 88 when the cummins dodges were starting to hit dealers this was the best thing you could buy at the time! Ford has contracts with Navistar and Dodge has contracts with Cummins, wish they sold light duty trucks like they sell class 8s and you can just pick which engine you want in which manufacturer of truck!

Jaco: Damn rednecks!

Hauler Scraper: man i cant believe you didint hold the brakes on the truck.

Relbac3: Hill 408 I have traveled that hill many a time. just outside of arlington going into duncanville. one of the most deceiving hills in the dfw area. it doesn't look like much but climb it in a gas engine with no load and your passing gear will get worked overtime. nice to see a true diesel get the job done relativly easy. 6.9 the work horse of diesel engines

Dinodiditbest: I never took it out of Drive.

jake fuller: you should have put the emergency brake on that is really bad for the park gear

tbonetwood1: im looking at getting an 86 6.9 4x4 and wanted to know what i can expect to be able to pull with it as a max tow rate

IDIBeast: @ididieseljohn ya I have an 85 with the c6 and 3.55s and turn around 2500 at 65 an love every second of that idi roar

Corvus Casull: Great to see an old 6.9 under load, doing what it was built for! These tried and true engines are underrated and forgotten in today's diesel world.

cumminsdiesellover01: that truck couldnt have done that all day like a cummins could it was slowly losing speed the whole way up

Clayton Barker: What gear were you in, And what gear ratio does it have?

customflht: the 6.9 gave way to the 7.3 . these old 6.9 are dam near bullet proof .. I have one in my '86 E350 tooter and its got governors on it but it will pull 15k pounds all day and night without a hick-up .. stock c-6 and 4.10 rear dually .. 65mph at 1450 rpms, no problem .. i just set the cruise and let it go ..

secretmarksman: @nvfd103 ha, look at the comments you have left behind here? who are you to call anyone an inbred freak?

Alan Bradshaw: I got a 84 with 81000 on 8its got a 4 speed and 2wd and i had seven ton on behind it and walked up a very steep hill and its stock too

BoomHDgames: i got an 89 7.3 5 speed she pulls 7 tons hay like a dream :) love them old ford

Thebroncobillshow: Ya true, thanks for the info. Geez just imagine if we broke that little sucker off in the tranny! That would not be good. Now in the future this process will be remembered. Thanks dude.

fordman2288: @nvfd103 wow spoken like a true 5 year old, go play with traffic

DuckwalkSupreme: Wow! Peak torque at 0 rpm, that's incredible!

85raminator: @nvfd103 if Cummins was so great id be out of a job, they all break dude get off the freaking cross!

landen300: If I had to guess, I'd say that trailer has 3500 pound axles and weighs about 1700 empty. So that being said, I'd say you guys were overloading it's 5300 pound capacity by quite a bit! I guess add 500 for tongue weight so 5800 pounds, but still! That Cummins truck has to weigh 7k plus. Great video though, I have a similar truck but I have the 4 speed manual. I thought this one was a manual until I read the comments, the gauge cluster is from a stick truck. Nice Job guys!!!

chrysny413: That's a hill? Come to north east pa

forddipper: i saw spur 408!!!!!!

chris pond: I have three of these

nvfd103: first of all this is the only time a ford will EVER pull a cummins, and second you freaking idiots dont know how to load a trailer to save your life, the trailer is too small the truck is overweight for it, your lucky it didnt fall apart on the highway and freak the cummins up because that truck is worth a crap ton more then that piece of crap ford. you should all killyouself, except for the cummins owner becuase he made the right choice in buying a truck. you inbred freaks

Keith Trammell: old work horse, 6.9 idi getter dun. ive got a 82 with 53k miles. love it. sure out pulls my 99 5.4

Thebroncobillshow: it is running the C6 auto, it was in final drive 1:1 3rd gear. the rear axle is a 3.55 ratio.

azteamr0per: i know here in az we have 7% grades that killed my 6.9l not even pulling 55 all the way up no load

Sooty Mangabey: hahaha ole i20 i drive that road every weekend hauling produce

CSXtrackworker: @nvfd103 You should grow up a bit, and stop sounding like a bratty little child with this whole "cumin's rules" and everything else suck's bit. The only time you see stuff like this, is from young kid's who don't know any better and lack maturity. No truck rule's the roost and I have seen plenty of ford's beat& drag around the cummin's around. It is pretty apparent you know nothing about truck's& the break down of each truck brand and what there pro's& con's are. No truck ultimately rules.

MWFrontier: I rated before I seen anything Cause you got a Ford...So you got a Truck!!! Personaly I'm a 7.3 guy But Ford Tough Buddy!

landon460: @moe346john If your talking about the t-19 or NP435 then it would probably do about the same considering they have the same final drive ratio as the C6. The only difference would be your engine would be screaming with 4.30 axle gears and a final drive ratio of 1:1!!!

NathansBackwoods: the 5.9 will pull better, it is designed for it though, in line six will make more torque, i am a cummins fan and wish ford would have used them, but those old 6.9s are pretty neat.

XxCopKilla187xX: Ford-Found Offroad Rescuing Dodge

Pulsion Mort: I live in DFW as well! Hah only us Texans can make awesome videos like this.

Gearhead1444: You will ruin the trans on the Ford if it is in park and it is pushing it like that.

RedneckRebel02: thats where dodges belong

VK7001.P: ha ha ha that's why you have a 4 speed manual no parking gear

CSXtrackworker: @nvfd103 What does hooking up have to do with what I was saying to you about being childish and growing up. As for fearing another's truck, I do not. I will hook up to any one. As I said before, no truck rules supreme. I have seen 7.3 powerstrokes out pull12& 24 valve cummin's in sled pull's. You should learn a thing or teo before you start in with the "dodge cummin's rules, your truck suck's" crap.

bill11012: They really are, they pull great.

taylortownmayor: My buddy had a 6.9 F250 extended cab with a manual trans (don't know what kind it was). The only thing he ever did to it was fix the glow plug controller using a push button. It was one of my favorite trucks of all time. I've got an 07 5.9 Cummins Ram now, his truck got me started on diesel. He sold it years ago but ever so often I'll see it at a local fair rodeo. If you keep the coolant additive in them to prevent cavitation you can't beat a 6.9!

polarisVerticalEdge: although they are not the most powerful and are nothing to compared to a 5.9l cummins. They are my favorite ford motor the sound cool and are very reliable! We have two on the ranch that start ALL the time and seem to be way more reliable then our 7.3 powerstrokes which are also great engines. keep in mind its 1980's they didnt have the technology we have today this a pretty impressive truck for the era it was made in. I have tons of respect for these old idi's.

Ben Denard: Adamz678 are you retarded the ford 460 just about the most reliable and long lasting big block engine there has ever been and also the 6.9 trucks didnt have much power but they will run forever and they might take a little longer to get you where youre going but they will get you there. Dont talk crap about stuff you know nothing about. Now the 351m was a piece of crap no power and not a very good over all engine think before you speak.

moe346john: if you can do that with a c6 i would like to see what my 4 speed with 4.30 gears can do with the same engine!
