  1. Installed M5s popped @ 280BAR yesterday, no more stalling finally "had" my truck back. Yes "HAD". Took for a run with Edge on 1-3, ran great, let egts cool down, comp on 5-5, ran great. 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? Caught light on Jersey side at Washington's Crossing put in N, long *

  3. All good info and appreciate folks sharing (a little hijacking just adds to the thread and good info as well). Now back on topic. Latest is Flux shipped injectors, popped at 280BAR and per tracking number they're slated to arrive "before 7PM" tomorrow=Saturday. Not sure if I'll get to replace them tomorrow, but hope so. Lot's going on with planning to clear out garage, car with no suspension, tool boxes, lighting, air compressor and lines etc. to move to new place... Oh, and the contents of the house too, all before closing on 5/13. Wish me luck
  4. Appreciate the offer. It takes me about the same so I'll go for it. My ribs are still sore from leaning on the rad support, even tho I had like 3 blankets rolled up on top of it.
  5. M73M, thanks. So in your opinion what Flux is proposing makes sense. I do believe their nozzles have more orifices than typical. I'll take them up on their proposal and hope it works. Kinda sucks when you're used to a certain power level for almost 2 decades and then all of a sudden you're down 150hp & 300tq. I got spoiled for sure. Getting a bit tired of changing injectors, but if this works, at my 62 years young, I'll never need to do it again, if it needs injectors at some point later I'll have someone do it for me. Thanks all. Will update.
  6. Here's the reply from Flux. "My apologies Joe, I was suppose to forward this to you from Don last week: We checked the opening pressure on the inj returned from Joe. Basically 295 bar on all 6. I suggest we lower that to 280 across all 6 and send those to him. I believe this is the last step we can take to increase the idle quantity and to help prevent stalling." What they're suggesting is opposite of what you've experienced? Not questioning you for sure. From prior communication with Fulx (after sending chart you provided, with pop off and leak down BA
  7. Got the RV275, cheapo, god knows what planet they were made on, "TEST" injectors installed Saturday. Ain't saying a word other than the video links below tell the tale. https://youtu.be/E2QJYMGLgxw https://youtu.be/TUeDafx6jSY https://youtu.be/tw6YB0ehHuE Will keep all posted as to reply from Flux.
  8. Thanks M73M, appreciate your continued replies and support. All, I know this thread and those on other forums are long and even I have to think about info I've included and check to see if I left anything out. In this (note on torque converter) I think I failed to mention a few things; 1- after I recieved my Mach 5's from being refreshed by Flux and stalling started immediately after installing, I sent truck to guy that built trans and Flux sent him a newly built set of Mach 5's, which after installing truck still stalled. Builder too though old torque converter was cause
  9. M73M voltage low in video was due to grid heater just cycling off, present set of batteries were new in fall 2020 and volt at 12.8 after sitting for days before starting (always replaced both at the same time over the years) after starting and running a bit the grid heaters off the volt gauge returns to normal (typically displays over 14v). Not questioning or challenging you, just sharing information not provided verbally in the video. As for the alternator, I will do the test mentioned in previous replies at some point, crazy time right now as I have a decent amount of work to do moving
  10. Yea, stupid indicator marks for sure. ½ way between 500 and 1000 is 750. Now that I think about it, and with you picture that is where it idled...before i sent my Mach 5s for refresh (and Flux sending me newly built ones) mess. Hope the new RV275s (test injectors) make it idle like it should. If so then I'll be talking with Flux. If not I'll be more bald than I am now as I continue scratching my head trying to resolve stalling...
  11. Sorry if I missed the W-T ground wire mod and the PCM protection fuse you mention. Can you PM so as not to clog this thread, unless you think it'll help someone else down the line - the links to the two (W-T & PCM fuse) mods. Thanks for side note on drag and drop I tried and realized the file was in excess of 100 MB was why I couldn't attach. But I've take some shorter videos, will make sure they're less than 100MB and post up, if need be in several posts within this thread of course. Thanks so much for your help thru this mess Going to attach some videos over the ne
  12. Well unfortunately I can't upload a video (guess it's too big?) so I'll have to explain, gads... Over the past few days, since I stupid misread a post on another site and disconnected the batteries with the truck running and it stalled BTW now I know 2 things 1-don't disconnect the batteries with the truck running and 2-don't disconnect the batteries with the truck running... Since the alternator was out, I took it to have it bench test and was ok, I decided to pull the harness from the alt side to the vp side and inspect. I methodically removed the tape and spring loom on wire
  13. I was surprised at the cost and free delivery too. Just hope they are good for testing to see if truck still stalls. At this point, and I hate to say this as I've always tried to buy the best & made in America, "I don't give a rat's anal orifice if they were made on the moon out of the rat's teeth as long as they work for testing"
  14. Got tire of all the...stuff??? Ordered a "new" set of RV275's from Dale's Super Store (https://dalessuperstore.com/i-23916207-5-9-cummins-rv275hp-injector-set-432193635-1998-5-2002-dodge-cummins-5-9l.html), confirmed new not reman, they gave me a promo code for $10 off, free shipping, 3 day delivery, and no core to return, $305.00 to my door. We'll see what this yields, hopefully no stall and the idle at wherever it is supposed to be. I'm believing Mopar1973man's reply WTE "All ISB engines idle at 800 +/- 10 rpms. Just want to be able to drive without stall
