I have an 855 big cam 400 in my 05. These are tuff motors I have 90,000 on this reman. I drive it hard all day long. To this day it does not use a drop of oil between changes. Clifford is rite about smoking at cold startup. I over come this by hooking my Aqua hot to the motor so I don,t have that problem. If I slow down to 65 I can get 6.8 miles per gallon.

Of course you're right, I was thinking of the 903. The 855 series is probably one of the best engines ever made. I have one in my '71 Dodge 9000 truck tractor and have put many miles behind one in an Int 9670

If the motor in the rear engine concrete truck that I spoke of is not left hand rotation, does the transmission have a different gear set up that changes rotation direction ? Is there a way to tell what model Allison is in the truck if it does not have a tag on it ?
