    Alternator & PCM failure

    Great! Installing the new PCM will be simple and the Cummins will be running again!

    Sorry to hear the bad news. Do you think there is any other damage in the electrical system?

    This is good information to know. Good people to work with and being able to communicate on the phone makes repairs/problems like this much less stressful. Good work here!

    Two tows in 362k is a good record...not bad at all. Best of all you were prepared and made it home safe and sound!

    Was wondering how you were progressing with the trip home. Have a safe trip!

    Towing without gauges

    Awesome and looking forward to seeing how the axle swap works out for you.

    Towing without gauges

    If your hungry for MPG you might want to consider trying a set of 245/70R 17 tires that are the same overall diameter as 245/75R 16 tires. If you still have the original 16" wheels around and mount some 245/75R 16s, it would give you a boost in MPG for certain along with more towing power too with 3.55s! 30.5 inch tires and 3.55s is a great combination!

    It died...

    I'm hoping to get 200k-250k out of the rebuilt replacement pump and you are doing well with the rebuild.

    Good to hear your safe. Checked the weather on Google and saw it was going to get very cold tonight in the Parma area. Wow! Have a great dinner and safe trip being hauled home tomorrow. Interested in knowing more about the repair after you get home.

    It died...

    My original VP lasted 250,457 miles! Replaced with a SO about a year ago. Truck died while driving at 45 mph rolling along in 5th gear......and was able to get started on the the third try to drive the remainder of the trip home for about 4-5 miles. Engine would only rev to 1100 RPM and was able to short shift up to third without lugging. Thanks to a kind Town Marshall escort I was able to travel safely at 10-11 mph for the few miles to limp home! So more accurately; the original VP 44 lasted 250,452 miles! Removed the pump at the 250,457 miles listed above. Michael

    Good to hear you have shelter and planning ahead with food and water as discussed recently in a post has proven to be very wise and useful. Best of success to you with the repair and safety. Michael

    Intermittent strange high idle.

    The 6 speed is awesome and so glad I was able to order as equipped. The truck was delivered with 245/75/16 Michelins and I've run a set of 235/85/16 for a few winters over the years....maybe 30k of the miles. With the 245/75/16s the tach shows 1750 at 60 mph and it might be a hair over 60 ......this is in 6th gear.
