I looked at an 1992 International 4600 today with about 135k on a 7.3. It has the 5 speed with the 2 speed rear. Are these engines reliable in the long run?

I am pretty sure this is the NA version. Does anyone have torque rating for this application? Is it feasible to get more power for this truck easily?

I will just be pulling a small Jeep trailer so I do not need a real powerhouse but has anyone towed with one of these trucks? How do they pull? I know they are a bit underpowered but does the gearing make up for it?

One other thing I noticed is a bit of white smoke for the first few minutes after the initial start up. The smoke then vanished even after subsequent starts. Is this something I should be concerned with? The injectors were recently replaced BTW.

Thanks for any input.
