John, your math is correct, 7.3L X 61 = 445.3xx inches..... HOWEVER.... The engine itself is 444 cubic inches. If you divide 444 by 61 you get 7.278..... and International chose to round it up to 7.3Ls.

I know its confusing but because of rounding you could be 6 inches off and have the same displacement in liters.

They sure are available with 4x4..... I owned 1, it was a 71 1/2 otn, shortbed,with a 383 stroker about to blow....... I traded my cousin it for his 72 3/4 ton long bed with a 427bb that was about to blow..... didnt take too long.... and now its sitting next to the 2 wheel drive version of it, that needs to be bagged and dropped.......

Sounds like a smart move Eric. The stock system has served you well, dont mess with a good thing. You could step up to a performance muffler if you wanted a little more rumble.

the gas gauge is a typical thing to fix on a truck as old as yours.. simple fix though, guarantee it's the sending unit switch

most of the things on this truck are not really pricy, whch is a plus for me. the spark plugs, wires, cap, rotor, all easy, even the strut bushing kit for both sides in the front are only 42 bucks, and i need to fix the tailgate.

i'm not sure how mazda does theirs.. i never really messed with 1, but if it's just a rivet.. drill it out, clip the connector off the wire, replace it and re-rivet it to the sending unit and you'll be good to go cheers
