FWIW - i am not an expert in the diesel engine world -- i am simply relating my experience -- i completly yield to the guys like makemine... and the others that diesel mechanics or have experience in this field

just leting you know what works for me --

makemine, what do you recomend for my 8v71 -- i will get a tach but were would you suggest operating it, i have a 4 speed manual -- i would guess that if it is govern around 2k and does 78 mph -- i should keep it around 72 mph -- to optimize fuel and oil compsumtion ... but it more fun to just hammer on it ... lol

thanks, dp

Dparker, the 8v71s like more rpms than the 92 series 1900 to 2100 doesn't hurt those engine but it will leak more oil at 2100 if your is set on 2000rpm that is a little slow for a 8v71 people set them to 2500 rpm with few problems but 2150rpm is a good setting for a long lasting engine keep yours between 1600 and 1900 for the best performance and fuel mileage  hope this helps some way
