    AC clutch

    I've given up, on the whole, trying to keep factory or Cummins only parts typically this turns out to be the most expensive solution and doesn't promise that it will give the same lifespan as the replacement. Kind of like @Me78569 doing Spicer ball joint to resolve a ball joint issue and they didn't last. Kind of like most chase the brand name Moog ball joints and don't last. I just picked up the cheapest ball joints AC Delco and still going. Chasing brand names for quality doesn't mean you'll get it.

    Thanks everyone

    For information sake... Stock pop pressure is 310 bar (4,500 PSI). Minimum is 293 bar (4,250 PSI) and the maximum is 327 bar (4,750 PSI).

    Whatever was cheapest at the time...
  4. If you let off the throttle to quickly you can introduce air back into the injectors lines and airlock the system. Typically occurs with modified engines with high boost pressure abilities. I would have the injectors check for pop pressure and see if any are low. 310 bar (4500 PSI) is stock value. 293 bar (4250 PSI) is the lower limit then 327 bar (4750 PSI) is the upper limit of stock.

    Napa compressor here, RA drier and orifice tube. Napa evaporator. Then RA condenser.

    Oil Temp gauge installed

    Come on AH64ID air is a different topic also the head design is way different too. (I'm going to drop this topic) So back to the oil... Like I said I really doubt the oil is going to be way different measure if the probe tip isn't exactly in the flow of the gallery. What is the most you going o be back maybe 1/4"? Seriously I doubt the oil will cool that much between the main gallery and the adapter and the sensor.

    That's the problem I think 3rd Gen has straight metric ports compared to the NPT you have.

    Missed my point. I'm talking strict the measurement of the oil. If the probe is in the oil port with an adapter and the tip isn't exactly in the middle of the stream all the oil is going to be very close to the same as the moving oil. I really doubt you can measure a serious difference of temperature with an NPT to Metric adapter.

    All I can do is try...

    Quadzilla Adrenaline Economy and MPG

    Not really. I realize the limitations. You would have to EXACTLY perfect conditions to hit that high mark. Yes you won't be able to hit that every single day. Like my old data logs I could hit high number as long as I stay focused and never towed trailers or hauled heavy cargo. But I've done it in the past and I want to do it again with the Quadzilla and the new knowledge we have now.

    Quadzilla Adrenaline Economy and MPG

    Ummm... No wonder your MPG suck if you are putting GAS in your fuel tank no wonder it runs like crap. Seriously. My old logs from back in the day with my +50HP injectors and Edge Comp with cruise set at 55 MPH I use to get 22-24 MPG pretty constantly. I gave up my Edge Comp moved forward with the Quadzilla and never reach those numbers again. There is other factors like my original +50HP injectors from Vulcan died at 75k miles with misfire issues (pop pressure fell), then I lost the awesome VP44 pump that nearly made 250k miles. So now I'm rebuilding and attempting to reach my old averages of 22-24 MPG like the past. I want to beat my old high mark even by +0.1 MPG which is 27.2 MPG (hand Math).

    Sure wouldn't do much for making compression or boost. Somehow diesel doesn't burn very good without air.

    Thanks everyone

    Duh... That's right you only pressing the springs down enough to get the valve collects out. I don't know why I thought the valve would be capable of pressing on the piston and move the piston down.

    Thanks everyone

    Did you have to bar the crank to keep it from turning while compressing the springs?
