    Wood Burners

    Gotcha. That would explain it. Thru all the reviews I read I decided to start with a surface mount instead of drilling a hole.

    That’s hot! My thermometer only goes to 800° and I have yet to see over 600°.

    Wood Burners

    I’m curious to see how this does. I have 16’ of single wall and then 5’ of class A chimney pipe. When it’s 400° 12” above the stove it’s 180° where the single pipe ends. It won’t get choked down too much with the size of the shop, so that will help out with creosote production.

    I passed inspection, if you want to call it that, and am burning away! This is turning out to be a great little stove. +10°F outside when I lit the fire in the shop this morning. Shop is already 42° and rising quick, still only +15°F outside.

    Unread content

    I’m not sure if I changed a setting, or the website settings changed but now when I select unread content it shows me each new post, not each new thread. When a thread is active it may have 10 updates and those 10 are displayed before anything else. It used to only show the thread once, regardless of how many new posts were in it. Is this something I can change my settings on? Or is it website driven?

    @Mopar1973Man like this? Do you not have the issue Michael?

    02 Cummins 1850rpm max

    Quick question. Why use an Auto ECM with a Ford Trans? I ask because I'm tuning for a guy with a similar truck, but he's using a 04.5 motor. He had the ECM flashed from auto to manual to use with the Ford trans.

    Turbo and boost

    My MM3 plugs in under-hood as well and with that attachment I got a whole bunch of data that isn't available thru the OBD port and it's kinda nice... in a nerdy way :-)

    Turbo and boost

    Correct, more a limitation of OBDII and the sensor/ECM. The quad just reads those signals. In true OBDII reading the max MAP sensor limit is 37 psi, which is 37 psia on 3rd gens, or 23 psig at sea level. So on OBDII readings the max boost is 23psig.

    Modern Power Point

    Haha.. me too, which is why I won't own Android, they break like Fords in my experience :-) There is a reason I'm restricted to apple devices for flight software.

    Modern Power Point

    My iPhone will charge on it's 1A charger as fast as my dads android on his fast charger (3A??)... that just tells me that Android phones need a considerably bigger battery to have any life, so maybe Android phones should catch up and use less power :-)

    Turbo and boost

    Couple of things... The quad is limited by the OEM gauge and probably can't read above 37, thou other's may know the exact number. If the boost is the same with the line pinch and not pinched then the WG is likely set higher than 43 and that's all the boost you're going to get with the fuel you have. I don't get anywhere close to the WG setting on my turbo as it doesn't need to drive that hard. Boost is simply a measure of restriction, so you can have lower boost and more airflow depending on the flow thru the head. The turbo will have an effect on this. I run about 6 psi less boost with this turbo than I did with the stock one, and that's with about 50-75 more rwhp. Heck, I run less boost (28) than stock (32) with 150 more rwhp and cooler EGTs (some airflow and some timing). So don't get hungup on the boost number, but rather does it smoke WOT or run too high of EGT?

    Modern Power Point

    I put a 3 port cigarette lighter behind the dash and “permanently” installed power for my GPS and SiriusXM behind the dash. The plug on the 3 port has a 90° connection so it lives on my lower non-switch OEM plug and isn’t obtrusive at all. This way I can unplug it when the truck is parked more than a couple days. I then have a 12V to double USB plug I use for charging things such as a phone or iPad. Its similar to this one Cable Matters 2-Pack 10W 2A Mini Dual USB Car Charger for iPhone / Android Smartphones Including iPhone X/ 8/7, Galaxy S9/S8/Note8, iPad Air/Mini, Sony Xperia, Google Pixel/Nexus, LG G6/V30 and More https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MH3USBE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_hPy5BbA324C2S I don’t like the ones that are above 2A as they can damage smaller devices such as phones. 2A will charge a phone very fast and not do any damage to the battery. I’m not even sure I’d want to run 3A to my iPad which is designed for 2A.

    Running Cool

    Sounds like it's stuck open. By rubber ring do you mean a gasket? They should all have one. Lots of horror stories with non-Cummins thermostats. I'd replace it with one made by Cummins.

    Nv4500 atf+4??

    Lots of fluids with the same spec are not created equal. Just look at oils, anything from cheap dino, cheap synthetic, or expensive synthetic all meet the same spec, but they are all quite different oils in terms of how they work and protect. If meeting spec was all that mattered we would all be running cheap Fram filters. I think that's the first place I've ever seen GL-4 and Syncromesh on the same bottle! It's always been presumed that Syncromesh was a GL-4 based fluid, or a variant there of... I've just never seen an OEM state it. Even other Valvoline brochures for that fluid don't mention it. Valvoline spec's that fluid for both NV-4500's and NV-5600's....as well as the G-56. http://www.carquestprofessionals.com/catalogs/chemicals/V-8070 Manual Transmission Fluid Application Guide 6.6.13.pdf
  16. Those weights are off the bottom of the chart. Run 35 psi and see how it wears.
  17. Absolutely, but finding a scale isn’t always that feasible for many people. There are plenty of good ways to determine proper pressure without a scale. I like the chart as a starting point if you don’t have easy/free access to a scale. I wouldn’t go much below 30 anyhow for any rig that might see 55+ frequently, regardless of weight.
  18. I’m a big fan of the HD long life coolants. The one I am running now is maintenance free for 8 years. It’s Peak Final Charge. It meets CES 14603.
  19. To do it properly yes, but you can set it for GAWR and watch the wear pattern. Luckily on a 1/2 ton the empty weight and the GAWR won’t be that different. I’d guess 35 is where he ends up for even wear.
  20. New tires often feel squishy for 500-1000 miles, so it may not be the air pressure. A 70 series sidewall will also flex a lot more than a 55 series. I use this chart quite often. https://www.toyotires.com/media/2125/application_of_load_inflation_tables_20170203.pdf Top of page 23 has your tire size. 35 psi will give you 4000lbs per axle, loaded evenly.

    Started another inframe today

    Looks like were getting more pics!!!

    Nv4500 atf+4??

    That's not the fluid I would run, as it's also a GL-5. The Amsoil fluid you want is the MTG 75w-90 GL-4. https://www.amsoil.com/shop/by-product/transmission-fluid/manual/manual-transmission-and-transaxle-gear-lube-75w-90/?code=MTGQT-EA While the OE fluid may have been Castrol Syntorque, Syntorque is a fluid and not a specification (unlike syncromesh). The specification is MS-9070, which is a GL-4 fluid. There are several fluids available that meet MS-9070 so the "right stuff" does still exist. Many OEM's have fluid specifications that are separate from SAE ratings, such as Cummins CES20086 and CK-4 oil. That doesn't mean that something that isn't the OE fluid isn't properly spec'd. OEM's cannot require you to run a specific brand of fluid/filter/etc.. If they do, then they must furnish it. What they can do is require you run a fluid/filter that meets a certain specification, which in the case of the NV4500 is MS-9070. Even Mopar changed the P/N recommendation of fluid for the NV-4500 over the years, but it appears to always have been MS-9070. IIRC you paid about $265 (tax included?) for 5 gals of Delvac SAE50, and I can get 5 gallons of Amsoil MTG to my door for under $280 (tax/shipping included). Even if your price included tax the Amsoil doesn't come at "quite a price". If tax wasn't included one can get Amsoil cheaper.
  23. I know with my Mag Hytec diff cover that my axles take a long time to warm up in the winter, even without a temp gauge. I can see the increased engine load from 45 mph for 20-30 miles or more depending on temp.

    will it tow

    My point is that if it’s enabled it may as well be at a value that will do some good. 1400 is above that value.

    will it tow

    Agree. I’m quite happy I ditched my double A-pillar mount.
