    Clutch time

    Realizing this is an old post i'll ask anyway. Did you upgrade the hydraulics to the South bend kit at any time? I recently did the 1947 OD I believe it was with the new flywheel, quite dissapointed in the clutch to be honest. Told the seller I wanted driver friendly as my wife trailers a lot, but upon replacing the clutch IMO its not close to driver friendly. Clutch pushes extremely stiff, even tho I understand a heavier pressure plate needs to hold up. Contacted South Bend and they said they don't even know if the hydraulic kit would do anything for me. I have a couple inches of working pedal, clutch engages maybe inch and a half off the floor. The seller will cut me a deal on the hydraulic kit to try to help me out, in saying that he doesn't think it will fix my issue. The clutch holds the power, but knowing all I probably would've just stayed with a stock clutch and got rid of the programmer

    Fan belts squeaks

    Flipped the belt around and seemed to quiet it down. I do notice though my new AC compressor makes some sqqeaking noise when it cuts in. May have to return that

    Fan belts squeaks

    Been dealing with the same issue for about a year and a half.. Had just the every day Gates belts on and they would be good for a bit then the swooshing noise nice starts. Since the start of this i've put I think 3 cheaper belts on and then went to the Carquest commercial Gates belt as mentioned about. Problem was fixed for three or four months and then after getting my truck out from storage this winter it started again. I too the belt off and cleaned all the pulleys and wire brushed them, bought another new belt figuring the other one just got hard or something from sitting all winter, and the new one took my noise away completely...for maybe a week. Now its back! Soon ready to sell the dam truck if I can't get it stopped as noises like that drives me nuts

    Syncromesh fluid

    Thanks very much for the reply Dieselfuture
  11. Did a clutch swap in my NV5600 and lost some of the fluid. I just changed the fluid last spring so would just like to add to it to get the proper amount rather than draining it out and putting new in. (Fluid still looks clear) No idea how much I lost so don't know how much to put back in. Top it off until it comes up over the gears be a stopping point or is that too much? I should add I know theres the plug on the side to check, but I cant remember how far up past the plug it went last time I put the extra bottle in..thats why I ask the question thanks

    Shifter Knob

    32 views and nobody can give any advice?
  13. Took my shifter knob off, kind of mangled the knob prying the shift pattern indicator out, whats the easiest way to put it back in as it's larger then the opening due to the ridge that locks it in place when its in

    Another VP44 Question

    I knew there wasn't something right about this pump from the first time I drove it. Discovered today they sold me the wrong pump (16X) . The correct one will be here by Friday

    Another VP44 Question

    So I have my new pump on for about a week now. Some issues i'm having are right from the first time i started it and took it for a drive I found immediatley on the stock setting on my EJWA its laggy, as in don't want to get out of its own way laggy. If I use the mileage, tow or drive Mod on the programmer it's pretty good....starts fine. A week later, I was out with it last night and parked the truck, about a half an hour later I went to start it and it rolled alot before it would start (3-5 seconds), no white smoke once it got going. Tried start/stop a bunch of times and acted the same way. Parked it overnight and my wife went out to take it this morning (cold engine) and it fired right up. Drove to where she was going , shut it off and came back out about 4 hours later and started fine again. Got home with it and unloaded her horse , i went to start it to go unhook the trailer, rolled 4-5 seconds, shut if off and tried again, same thing. I went all over what I touched when replacing the pump and even looked over items I didnt touch, cannot find any leaks, can't see where i'd be getting air and to that point i'd like to add i can shut the truck off and try to start it a second later and it will roll 4-5 seconds, so as for air in the system, I can't understand it sucking that much that quick without showing me where its getting in. Also to add a twist, there have been times today when i'm working at it, i'll start it and it starts right away for 3 or 4 times, then it will act up again on the next try .New fuel filter, even took it out today and put a new o-ring gasket on the housing, took the intake horn off and put a new gasket thinking maybe that may be bad causing something. I'm kind of stumped and wondering if I got a dud pump especially where it's been lagging of power from the start. Bought it from a certified Bosh dealer locally Holding 16-18 psi for fuel, electric pump working upon startup until Fuel Boss kicks in, makes no differnce if I have programmer plugged in or not, Seems to happen more on warm/hot engine although just started happening last night so I haven't got alot of time trying it under different conditions. I'm puzzled ! Soon ready to put a match to it
