  2. I too was wondering where @Camocoaltrain was in the fray of this topic. Also, @Dieselfuture thank you for the acknowledgement...my dismal record of activity due to circumstances will improve slightly and my recent absence from the site was a technical error that has just been corrected with the assistance of @Mopar1973Man...hence, I will be here to annoy the participants with zealous intent in the pursuit of technical excellence regarding the CTD platforms. Cheers

  4. Some photos of the new and old. More to follow. I got the fan clutch replaced today. Went to my shop and 30 seconds later had it in my hand. . Thought it might be a bigger search since I bout it a while back. According to the invoice in the it was 2013. Had another problem back then that turned out to be something else. So I hope shelf life dont kill it. It is a Hayden and everything in the box says made in the USA thought it is not on the part anywhere. The fins do appear to be different but the body including the fins appears to be the same size. So I have no idea what the differ

  6. I've got awesome news. I've been doing some thinking. I've got a buddy that works for a single billionaire doing all the landscaping for his 104 acre property. Well after a bit of talking to my buddy about a week later I ended up with a job interview with the property manager. Needless to say I aced the interview. I've been given 2 weeks to get my truck in order and finish my other jobs. I've already bought 2 toolboxes for Thor. My job for the owner will to be to maintain all vehicles and equipment for the owner. This includes ATVs, tractors, lawn mowers, any vehicles left on the property. The

  8. Automatics got D70 (10.5" ring gear with 3.5" tube diameter) Manuals got D80 (11.25" ring gear with 4" tube diameter) [Actually a Hybrid D80 with reduced outer ends) On 2500 SRW trucks both axles use the same calipers, rotors and pads as far as I know. The DRW are different as is the axle housing.

  9. I would not just throw more parts at it. That seems to be a exercise in futility. Lets try to eliminate a few. The oil pressure sensor is easy. You dont have one since it is an 02. It is a single wire switch that is activated at around 6 psi and then the ECM takes over and positions the needle based on RPM and engine temp. Dodge made this change because folks were thinking their oil pressure was to low at idle. There is a TSB about it from Dodge. Had me fooled for quite. Didnt even believe it when I first heard about it. Its quite convincing. How did you test the charge

  10. $85 an hour and all travel is paid for. No time limits and they will handle all parts and supplies I need. If I need any special tools they will handle it for me. All I've got to do is ask. I've seen some of the toys. The owner has 8 personal jets and I missed the fly over I left to early. Dune Buggy, wave runners, snowmobiles, tractor, etc plenty to work on. I've been hired on as a "FULL TIME" mechanic for the property. What was the selling edge was this website. The fact I've been dealing with 2,500 people day and 60,000 a month. I was showing "Neal" the property mana

Yee has! Late 1130 last night went for leisurely drive up along the Delaware, 45mph cruise on, life is good, right... I hit a few little bumps and seemed like trans went into N. Tapped the go pedal slightly rpms increased slightly put I N tapped go pedal a little, put back in D, hit resume and all seemed well. I'm like WTF was that all about?

  15. I think your fan clutch will work fine. There were probably a couple of gremlins living in it while it was on the shelf. They will quickly jump into your wiring harness now that you have installed the fan clutch. In fact, I think they already have, since you mentioned the fan clutch now seems to be working fine. - John

  16. i ended up taking an ecm off a friends truck and it fixed the issues i was having with it dying and not starting. So, i finally to get my new ECM. I installed the new ECM and all of my random issues went away. The track runs better than it ever has since I've owned it. I also tested the ALT and everything looked good, so my scanner must have read the data wrong or the old ECM was throwing out weird data. Hopefully the truck will be maintenance free for a while, I'm running out of money and things to replace LOL. thanks for all your help this guys!!

  17. Think of it as a warning whistle for other drivers that your spooling up and ready to unleash the beast. Just like when a guy at work told me my truck was leaking (water separator valve on the filter housing) I told him "it isn't leaking, it's sweating torque"

  23. I ordered the vpmax test gauge kit from vulcan. So will do some testing once it shows up. Thanks all for input so far. Has anybody rigged up a permanent test spot that could be used. Basically hook the test gauge up as needed. I was thinking of getting a tapped banjo bolt to use at the VP inlet and put a needle valve on the end of the banjo that could be opened and closed as needed. Use that needle valve to hook my test gauge up to.

Some of this requires long phone calls and working with tech at the hosting company. Like today I just spent about an hour on the phone dealing with server errors and the lag associated with the errors. More of these I can get rid of the faster the server can be. I've finally out ran my knowledge and now have to get help to make it better. The tech I talked to I asked her to have the master tech pass along the informati

  31. I got a customer that called me asking about his clutch in his 94 Toyota. I went over to his place and hopped in the cab and could feel the pedal was super soft and like its not even pumping. I pumped the pedal up and could make a good shift. I knew at this point the hydraulics on the clutch were fried. The brake fluid was black in color. (day ends) Next day I'm down in town getting supplies for another job. Stopped at the local Chevron. This customer happen to be there. He was talking to guys at Chevron about changing the clutch hydros. My friend there was like I've n

  32. Glad you're OK, I NEVER leave my truck in gear when parking,(in fact I hate it that every tech/tire guy does) but I've got a unique situation, no neutral/clutch safety switch, ( I do have a toggle switch that does interrupt the starter circuit, but that's usually to complicated for most tech these days) and the starter will start my truck in gear. Very useful one time when the clip that holds the clutch rod to the pedal popped off in CT in a traffic jam, I think I started it 10+ times before I could get off an exit, 5 min later clip on, back on the road. Since then I fixed the problem.

  36. When mine locked up last summer I drove it for about 2 weeks due to working 16hr days. I will say this, just buy the OEM from either the dealer or genos garage, I tried the part store special, the good gmd brand from rockauto, and lastly the amazon special. All stayed locked or didn’t lock at all. OEM was the only one that worked properly From the box.

  37. Sounds like it's original hg then, and at some point you put in arp studs in one at the time I assume. Could be just the time for it being that old. Mine never leaked coolant, it was pushing oil from a front middle stud, I took the nut off and clean the hole real good with carb cleaner then squeezed bunch of rtv between the stud and the head and torqued it back down, benn good for years then I was playing with quad and it started pushing oil out between the head and the bock. If you take the head off I would personally have your guides checked and then have the valve seal seats machined

  38. I put mine back like stock. Machined the head, stock gasket, and reused the stock bolts. They were well within Cummins spec. I do have Comp on it and it held the power just fine. If I ever went to a Quad I would put studs in it. As far as o ringing it, i dont have a clue. @Mopar1973Man PLUCK THAT HEAD. BAWK!!!!!

Not sure where they met, but it was much faster than them just going directly to the hospital in Boise.

  40. Love to get over there and do some detecting. That would be just tops. About those trucks... I really like them being so useful/ utilitarian. Built to last and perhaps much more reliable without all the technological aspects. I like that. So easy to work on the engine too, the way the cab tilts out of the way. They have something similar here called the NPR trucks with a Mitsubishi diesel but, the environmental protection agency mandated less particulates and the exhaust manifolds are cracking with some other issues showing up in the low miles range. I thought about and

  42. After a 3 year long of not running... Stuffed in a new Valair quiet towing dual disc clutch and a set of +50HP injectors. It runs! It's been so long since I last drove it that it was like a all new experience. No real smoke at all. Remember there is no tuner just the +50HP injectors and stock ECM. I rolled out 18.2 MPG on the way home at least on the overhead display. I need to set up my app for this truck and start monitoring the actual MPG which might be a bit better being this does have oversized tires (33 inch). Ratio is wrong and runs on the hot side climbing grades. Oh yeah

  43. That's why I don't use the bleeder style. Trying to force air to travel downward against it will is just plain crazy. Air will always travel up to the highest point. Pull the entire system out and hang. Then press the slave in fast and release slowly. The air will be forced up and return to the reservoir. Instead of pumping like mad to attempt to push it out of bleeder on the slave at the very bottom. I've done a few re-bleeds with master still installed but pull most of the line straight and do the same thing. Still easier to push air UP than down.

  44. Ouch... That suxs. I know what you mean someone dumped all my nuts in the washer can. Sort that stuff out on the floor. Now in this case sorting copper washers and measuring every one with caliper oh man that will just be crazy for someone. Just a heads up being I've seen his shop. Yeah its just not a small bind of this and that @dieselautopowerhas quite a bit in the shop and then out in the warehouse he's got racks full of ready product. Yup someone will be wishing they were peeling taters..

  45. We will make sure to get you the correct washers. Someone brought the washer mismatch to my attention Friday. Supplier sent some that were slightly smaller in height and it did not get checked before it got added to our container of washers. The height difference would affect spray pattern about 1*... For reference RV275 are 1* different than stock, so 1* is of little consequence and would not cause the problem you are experiencing. Regardless it doesn't look good and its not how we want the product to go out. Someone at the shop will be wishing they were peeling potatoes today
