No matter when it goes, next year or tomorrow, it cost big bucks, when your a regular working stiff, even bigger impact when your a retired working stiff
2012 in frame rebuild of the Cummins in the DP, $7000 and two weeks motel expense , full timing and on a trip
3 yrs later turbo went out, blew oil everywhere,but where it was so
Posed to go, $15000 rebuild and 2 weeks In the motel
All you can do is keep some money available and pray, it doesn't happen during your big vacation trip across country

I had a 7.4L carbureted rebuilt in 2013 (yeah, I know). It cost me right at $5K for parts and labor. FWIW

I just purchased a 97 firan 33 foot with a blown up 7.4.
Previous owner checked at a shop and they wanted $10k-$12k for new engine and r&r. I’ve always done my own work so I pulled it and rebuilt it. I’m still almost $3k in. I will say, pulling it and reinstalling was the toughest motor job I’ve ever done! Keep maintenance done and you shouldn’t have any problems. Now as for the 3000 mile or 5000-7500 mile oil changes, do whatever you feel. Mine has 32,000 miles on it and the oiling system was the issue with why it blew. Most vehicles that state a 7500 mile change also don’t weigh 16,000lbs...
I will be doing mine every 3,000 miles.
