92 cummins questions

my dad is looking at a 92 ram 250 with the cummins, auto trans, and a plow. anyone know much about the first gen cummins? i've been searching the net and havne't found much info on these....seems everyone is interested in the 2nd and 3rd gens. any info would be great....stock specs performace upgrades available, etc.....or should he look for a newer 2 or 3rd gen? that problaby won't happen though cuz of price. only looking at this cuz it is in a price range he would spend on a 2nd vehicle/plow truck.

what would you like to know? its a cummins (obviously), A618 tranny, if its a 4x4 it has a 205 and a 60 front and 70 rear. in 91.5 they went to the intercooled version. they will tow the world and last forever if you take care of them.

The nice thing about the first gen cummins is that they are simple and everything is easy to get to. If your dad is looking at trucks with auto trannys make sure he does not mod the truck without building up the tranny. They wont last under extreme stress. I prefer standards for pulling.
My 92 has 233000 miles on it. The engine has had no problems what so ever. I have toasted 4 trannys and 2 rear ends though. Hence the reason for not liking autos in diesels. The last tranny I had custom built my Schied diesel and have absolutely no problems. I pull a lot of weight and abuse my stuff more than most.

thanks for the info. we havne't gone to look at the truck yet as his buddy is thinking about buying it. it would mostly be used for plowing our driveway and our buisness lot(not much of that needed here lately) and to carry stuff in and to put jetskis in the water...but have other vehicles for that also. the truck we currently have is a 85 chevy with a 305 and a plow...it's a beater but works for what we use it for. so this would be an upgrade and might actually get used a bit more. the chevy gets used about 2000 miles a year if that. so not looking to haul any huge amounts or anything but would be nice to have jsut in case. I do end up needing to haul a car trailer w/car ocasionaly(1-2 a year) and end up borrowing someones truck usualy though.

BTW this truck has 170K on it. hell the chevy we have has 180K on it!!
