  2. Both the Throttle and the ppump FSS are all the way forward.
  3. Evening all, I've been searching and trying things for awhile now, and still no luck. Long story.. I have a 99 24v 5.9l that I have swapped to a brand new rebuilt ppump from Scheid diesel, new Crazy Carls kit, with 0.093 lines and DFI SAC 7x0.010 injectors. air dog 4g 165, new sump. Initially I bought the ppump from a guy that needed to be rebuilt, but i installed the pump and was able to get the truck running. but then the Rack was sticking so i sent it out. Since i got it back I haven't been able to get the truck to run, 3 of the new fuel lines weren't seating properly so they were replaced. I bought a used Airdog 100, but replaced it with a 4g 154, and new Baldwin filters. since the Airdog100 was loud. i figured clogged filters, but when I took the motor apart I found that the seal was worn and diesel had gotten in and corroded the inside. after replacing that it was still loud, and not as quiet as it should be. (1 Problem) I'm guessing theirs still air getting in somewhere. I have a fuel pressure gauge hooked up before the Ppump, reading a steady 50 psi When installing the rebuilt ppump, i set it at Sheid diesels recommended 18 degree pin timing. Ran the Airdog pump, cracked open the overflow valve fitting on the ppump until the bubbles stopped and steady stream of fluid entered. closed it off, then started cranking the engine with the nuts on the head/injector side cracked open (1,3,0 until they were pissing out. closed them off, then would open the others until they sprayed.) at this point im getting a slight mist of smoke. then closed those ones off. and would crack open 1,3 again. this is as far as it gets I have 2 batterys, and I've been cranking and cranking. till nothing. I've changed out the return fuel lines, new fpv and washers. Ive pressurized the tank to check for leaks, and sprayed all the lines, and still nothing. Even the ppump to injectors I've tightened and loosened to try and get a good seal. How could the High pressure side loose prime? I don't understand how this could be so difficult.. where else could their be a leak? Does anyone have a bomb proof fuel line setup? I'm thinking about switching to AN fittings, i hate the stupid banjo bolts. Sorry for the long post, I'm still new and learning cummins. I've asked other forums, looked online and I'm still lost. any and all help is greatly appreciated
  4. Ooooo that makes sense! but it case it didnt, could you say it another way? I went through and changed the mcp can1 (10), from 1 through 15. mcp can1 (1), mcp can1 (2), mcp can1 (3), mcp can1 (4) etc.. and none of them would result in moving the actuator.
  5. Anyway to send you a video? I've taken the Arduino out of the equation. It still does the same thing. When power and GND are applied it spools up.
  6. When I connect the power and ground to the actuator, whether its connected to the arduino or not, the motor starts spinning. accelerating, and then decelerates. It doesn't jog like its supposed to. Jog, like the motor twitches for a moment. RX receive led on the Canbus shield is solid lit up.
  7. Alright, new arduino mega, and Canbus shield. Tried different libraries. Still does the same thing. Spools up for a second then stops. Tt doesn't jog RX is still solid lit. Is their somewhere in the coding that the Can has to be defined or something? I find it hard to believe that this actuator after being sent out, new board and updated software.
  8. ARGHH, So I sent out the actuator to AVI electronics in Illinois, who updates and rebuilds vgt and other stuff. I got it back today. Hooked everything up and it does the same as before. I hook up the pos n gnd and the actuator spools up for a second. I hook up the Can to the arduino (arduino +Canbus + lcd shield to calibrate) and RX led illuminates. On the serial plotter it is sending the commands, but theirs no response. Everything is straight connected. Any thoughts? I'm going to go back an reread everything...
  9. Hahaha, it is, only because it was temporary. it was local, and available at the parts store just needed something until i got the baldwin in the mail.
  10. She's a work in progress, but thanks to this site, I have learned so much 😊
  11. I was using a 12v small engine battery, then tried a 12v 3 amp bench power supply. I just got the actuator today from a guy, he said it was a known good actuator with low miles.
  12. I have triple confirmed the connections are correct. I see it's getting sent a message on the plotter. It doesn't jump when power is applied, it. Just runs for 2 seconds then stops. I can disconnect the power, reconnect and it runs again for 2 more seconds.
  13. I dont know whats going on. I have the code uploaded to the arduino, I can go into the serial plotter and see the data changing. when I hook up POTS, I'm able to change the veins on the serial data. But, when I connect the power, and Can wires I dont get movement. The only thing that happens, is when I connect the power wires the motor spins for a second then stops. From the he351ve actuator, heres hot I have the wires hooked up. Red/blue = 12v power Green/white = GND Yellow = CanH Green = CanL Most likely dont have those connected correctly, eh? I dont want to screw up the actuatur.
