Hi Moggers..
How many hours should I expect a 416 to do before needing a rebuild? How many Kilometers should i expect the rest of the drivetrain to endure before rebuilding?:bowdown:

Well the motor is rated to 12500 hours before needing major rebuild. But of course that is assuming that the oil and all the filters were changed when needed! As for miles, again it will depend on if the truck was "used and abused" or taken care of.

I don't recall exactly - wasn't a OM352 considered 'used up' and ready for re-build at ~ 10,000 hrs ??

As for drivetrain endurance, it totally depends if it was driven by Obergefreiter Herrman on road all it's life or driven by lead foot Stabsfeldwebel Braun on dirt tracks, chasing tanks. :)
