I'm not so sure about the 300 Ford. A buddy of mine is a fork truck
mechanic and says that the 300 Fords hold up just fine in a passenger car
or van but they don't hold up at all in any heavier service than that. He
has taken 292's home after being scrapped and put them in suburbans that are
still on the road. Maybe it's just the water around here, who knows!
