My first dump truck was a 1962 F 650. It was a fairly new truck back then.
Was a good old girl
Had a 292 under the hood. I put a 5 spd in it, then a 2 spd rear.
Got the ball rolling for me.
I replaced it with LTL's, then Diamond Reo's. Later went to Pete's.
Last truck I owned before I retired was a Pete.
Those single axle Fords are a good starting point. They are the timex watches of trucks. Take a licking, and keep on ticking

I finally retired the 62 Ford in the late 80's when it got to the point, you pushed in the clutch and the cab raised up in the air.

My buddy still has it down on his farm in Wva

Probably will have it figured out on Friday at a mechanic shop.

And thanks Fellro,that's reassuring the F600/700 series are still easy to work on. I guess that's another Gen behind my new Gen 7. Is yours running with a carburetor? Wondering if there is one on an 83, but kind of think it will be injected and much more similar to my 92.
It will be carbed, too early for injection.

I've repaired/rebuilt and cleaned carbs on generators.

Any different? Just bigger?

Basics are the same. Working on them can be a bit different, but the general idea is the same.
