You pay by GVW and in catagories, it's a drag. Going from a 3/4 to a 1+ is just another 1000 dollars.....................................
unrelated, bt you said you rebuilt your auto tranny right? 47RE?  What are the electronics involved in it? Do you think it would be a big job to control it with an Arduino?

No, you have a crappy manual thingy majiggers!... I only broke 4 or 5 of them in 100,000.. NV5600 has been faithful so far

Mine is apparently the "HD" version, since the regular seal didn't work and had to get the "HD" 4500 seal. Whatever that means.

I haven't blown it up yet, but I haven't really tried. Loaded up the input shaft seems like it's ready to go though :)

Sorry I've been absent.. life gets in the way of play..

had my engine apart to find out why the #2 cylinder is down on compression.. it looked perfect, talked to a buddy of mine, he thinks maybe a bent rod?  wouldn't explain blowby though that could come from all the cylinders..
I'm thinking of going back to the 60mm turbo while I deal with this to have more air and better spool.. reduce the smoke a little.

I just hauled a HEAVY trailer home, still has OK power, though not what it should be.. 10% hill a mile long I was still doing 55 mph at the top, 1300 EGT's but I was backing out.. a bit better turbo mapping could have helped me there, boost was falling off too fast as I backed off the throttle

Other news, my first gen went to south dakota and back to pick up a trailer.. I had 4 cows with pneumonia, One calf that one the darwin award by getting stuck in a bush in the dumbest way possible.  I'm sure there's more I'm forgetting.. it's been a busy summer

I shipped my calves this weekend.. of course another #$%## injector piled up 40 miles into the trip and made the rest of it a bit of a misery... I kinda fixed it by just tromping on it.. had a moron in front of me dawdling along.. until there was a passing lane of course.. then he did like 70mph... No problem, bad injector, still have a weak cylinder, still did 85mph with a load of calves in the trailer, and one heck of a smoke cloud behind me... Mileage sure sucked.. only made about 300 miles on a full tank.. EGT's tended to be higher, and on some long hills there was some popping sound in the exhaust.. no doubt from a dribbling injector making some late fire.. I'll do another compression check on the truck when I put some old 5x12's I have into it and see how it runs.

Last week I was prepared to pull my engine and put my old spare in.. decided to do a compression check first since I had to pull the injectors anyhow.. Remember I put a .020" thicker head gasket it.. most of my cylinders were 410-420 PSI (down 20psi) and the #2 that I took apart came up to 400 (from 390) despite the thicker gasket, so I decided against pulling it.
Since my injectors were acting up, I went and put my old 5x009's in... gonna be down on power for sure, they're less than half the size but it should burn clean at least.. I also maxed the injector pump since that pump wasn't all that balanced anyhow... I'll start it up and with the infrared temp gun try and see which exhaust runners are running hotter at idle and turn those down to at least get close... maybe someday I'll get a 6x thermocouple amp and have one in each cylinder runner.. I think that would really help diagnosis.

I'm also starting to really throw around the idea of at P pump 24V engine.. I can get a 24V engine minus injector pump for a couple hundred bucks if I pull it.. take the head and pistons, put some rings on it, toss it in a 12V block (I want the option of the mechanical lift pump) and have some fun..  Apparently the truck I just got is a 96 not a 97, so it's got the 180hp pump..
I was told the 160hp pump maxes out at 550 to the wheels.. I think I can do better than that though.

Injectors are a pain, I hate my 7x's they haze so bad even warmed up, it's just stupid. I really wanna go to a 5x9 or 5x10 and just open up the pump, It'll flow 500ccs LOL

remember that 5x010's are half the size of 5x014's... being in california I guess it's doubly important to have it clean burning.   I think I'm going to bite the bullet and get genuine Bosch ones this time, costs about $750, but these failing injectors are driving me nuts, and especially when they take a cylinder with them

Well.. I was on holidays a while.. Spent too much money on toys.. though I got a lot of stuff for free as well (parts washer, coffee grinders.. not ordinary ones but 15hp coffee grinders that will be used for chicken feed).
Picked up a quad cab with doors that'll go on the truck pictured above.. bought a little 5x10 utility trailer so I could haul everything home.

Most notable thing is I took the 215 hp pump out of that truck and brought it to BD to get it maxed and balanced.. should be 750cc/1000 hp capable when it's done.. I'll leave the stock DV's in for now, maybe put the 052's in later..  I'll see how far I can push these 5x009's before I talk to Seth Farrell  about new ones
