  2. I tried the 5 mm bolt for the ground point on the timing gear case, and it was too loose and wouldn't tighten up at all. I bought a 6 mm bolt with the same thread pitch and it fit perfectly. I know W-T's thread says "5mm" but just thought I'd save some folks another trip to the hardware store.

    Alternator rebuild kit

    Mike, I just placed an order for your Denso diode. Thanks!

    Alternator rebuild kit

    Mike said in his post above, that I couldn't install his diode kit and the high amp upgrade on my Denso alternator, he said it had to be one or the other. I just wanted clarification if that was correct or not.

    Alternator rebuild kit

    I have the Denso alternator on my pickup. So I can't replace the diode with your kit and upgrade the amps on my alternator, it has to be one or the other?

    That's a great price for the diode kit. I finally found the upgrade section. What's everyone's thoughts on installing the high amp upgrade on our alternators when we install the new diode kit?

    Alternator rebuild kit

    I performed the ground and positive cable mod on my Cummins and it didn't make a difference in my new torque converter lock/unlock issue. My alternator is putting out too much noise and I want to replace it before it burns up my billet torque converter and anything else electronic. Can someone post the part number for the Denso diode kit, and the hi amp alternator upgrade? I was looking on their site for my 99 Cummins alternator, but then the one page said no kit and no price. Thanks!
  8. Has anyone made a complete parts list to modify and install this awesome upgrade to the charging system? I'd like to only make one trip to the parts house since it's 40 miles round trip away from my town. Thanks, Doug

    02 Cummins electrical draw 2.8 A

    My Dad was disconnecting the power wire to the PD Box from his driver side battery and sticking the test light in between the battery and the PD box wire terminal end. How would he go about checking the relay sockets? Thanks for all your help!
  10. He found out that he has an electrical draw of 2.8 Amps which is running his batteries down. He has disconnected the power wire from the driver side battery to the Power Distribution box, disconnected the Alternator charge wire from the PD box, disconnected the Alternator feed wire from the Alternator, removed the aftermarket stereo, removed every fuse and relay from the PD box, unplugged the trailer plugin receptacle, unplugged the ABS module, unplugged the PCM, and from inside the fuse box n the driver side of the dash, and his test light will still stay lit. He has unbolted the PD box from the left inner fender and turned it upside down and visibly checked for any wiring issues there, and he didn't notice anything amiss. He's at his wits end trying to figure this one out by himself. The only thing that he hasn't disconnected yet is the wire to the solenoid at the starter. Does anyone have any ideas as to where to check or what to do next? Thanks, Doug
  11. It is more noticeable under light throttle like when driving up a hill, but I believe it's there under full throttle acceleration as well. The shudder does feel like a rapid vibration.
  12. My trans is not cycling (hunting) between OD and 3rd at all. I just have a shudder in OD only and is only really felt when on light load throttle application. I don't have any tuners or chips on the pickup at the moment.
  13. Update, my TV cable was about 1/2" out of adjustment. I re-adjusted the TV cable and it does shift more normally now. I took my pickup to my friend that owns a Transmission specialty shop, and he drove it and said that the torque converter shudder is because the previous owner left the TV cable out of whack too long and it has ruined the lockup on the torque converter. bigfish - don't you mean PCM as it controls the auto transmission, cruise control, voltage regulator, etc?
  14. I guess the trans still shifts weird from 2nd to 3rd at any other time, and not just under heavy acceleration.
  15. I wonder if my pumping vacuum into the vacuum line that's hooked to the vacuum servo, might have unstuck the diaphragm in the cruise control servo? For shits and giggles on the way home from work (20 miles each way) I hit the cruise control button and the light lit up and then I hit the set button and it was working. I tried the resume and accel buttons and they work too. All I know is that I'm super happy to have cruise control working for once on this pickup. Now onto the trans. When under heavy or full acceleration, the trans seems like it shifts from 2nd to 3rd, and then instantly shifts back to 2nd (rpm raises 500 rpm) and then it accelerates and shifts into 3rd gear and then it shifts into OD after a bit. Can someone explain what the governor pressure solenoid, the transducer, the OD lockup solenoid functions are for the auto trans shifting? Since it seems to be a 2nd to 3rd shifting issue, and the rest of the gears feel great, no slippage, I'd like to get it fixed ASAP. Thanks!
