Right or Wrong(motor swap)continued...

I posted a thread in reference to me doing a motor swap on Jan. 20, 2011. I didn't get any response from anyone in reference to the hours on the motor in the ambulance. If there is anyone with knowledge with hours on these motors please respond. I agree with the replies I did recieve, thank you for your response. The ambulance motor has 8400 hrs on the hour meter. Is this too many or Ok for the 165,000 miles on the odometer? Sure it has alot of idle time sitting on scene but would that take a toll on the motor? Service has always been done properly since the truck was bought new. It's the only truck that doesn't go to the shop, unlike our other two trucks with the early 6.0's. Thanks in advance for your input.

I have never heard of that formula, but I would say it sounds close. Well if that is true I still think I might be doing the right thing. I bought my truck with no knowledge of where it came from and how it was used but I do know the entire history on the ambulance so that is a little ease on the brain. Your knowledgable on these trucks, can you give me an idea of what needs to be changed over from block to block. Thanks 03_Turbo7.3
