A question about my International DTA 360.
I mentioned earlier that I bought a 1993 24 foot 4700 International with a DTA 360. Super nice running truck with an Alison automatic. This used to be a Budget Rental truck. It has about 224,000 miles on the engine. I have all the paperwork from when it was new, but then everything after that is unknown. A major concern is the O rings at the bottom of the sleeves, and how long do they typically go. When I bought the truck, there was a jug of antifreeze with it, and the radiator level sight glass was leaking fairly well, which I fixed. But how can you tell that the O rings are fixing to let go? I'm set to do an oil change and am expecting that if they are leaking, that the first bit of oil will in fact be anti freeze, since the truck hasn't been run for several months now. Is that a safe assumption? I'd like to change the oil and filters, then run it. I will certainly be having the liners removed and inspected / replaced when I can afford it (soon I hope), but if anyone can shed some light or wisdom on this area, I'd sure appreciate it.
