pushin my luck a little...

I know this is a almost impossible question to answer for fact so I just ask for your opinon.
I have anywere from a 25-30 degree diff in the delta's. And yes I have ervything at the house to fix it but I dont have the time.....just yet (oct 1 is the big tear down). So I need the truck for just a couple times a week until then, 10 miles unloaded, into town will sit for 1.5 hours then back home. Question-How bad am I pressing my luck? Thanks in advance.J

Delta's

For what it's worth, my max delta is 14degrees. It takes almost 20 miles of highway speed to reach that delta. Yours is almost twice what mine is. I don't know that you can draw a direct correlation with that info, but if you are only driving 10 miles a couple of times a week until your project date, my OPINION, not advice, is that you would probably be ok.

I think you'll be ok. Guys who tow heavy on long trips can reach eots as much as 240*, though their ects get higher as well.

I am in the same boat, speaking of boats have to use it to bring in the boat in three weeks for winter. Our lake, nothern WI is about 6' low on water after 5 years of drought up their, we have about 30' of adiditional beach. 6' low times 1000 acres is lot of water.
Have everything I need but time.

If you are going to continue to drive your truck with deltas that high i would keep a real close eye on your coolant level. Once the coolant is gone you can kiss your head gaskets goodbye.

The HG will blow even before the coolant is gone! Coolant in cylinders means lifted HG.
