Ford V-10 question
« on: August 15, 2017, 11:38:11 PM »
I have been looking at a 1998 class C 31ft Tioga with a V10. I have heard the early V10,s weren't quite as good as 2001 and up....

If it is still running good after 19 years, I don't think you need worry much.

Has a few less hp, 4 speed instead of 5 and sometimes the spark plugs would come out because they weren't enough threads to hold them in (Ford fixed that at some point of course not sure when). 

Agree with Gary if you drive it and like it don't worry about it.  Probably not gonna tow a lot without some effort though.
