RE: Used 3126b engine

If the engine was dusted, wouldn't there be more than one cylinder involved?

RE: Inconsiderate Drivers

I think some of the issue of cars cutting people off is that so many of the new cars you cannot see out of them properly. They build these stupid looking things that don't have a field of vision and then put on back up cameras and lane warning devices and on and on. Why can't they just build a car that you can actually see out of? Why don't people learn how to drive like you had to years ago? Sorry I am Ranting!!

RE: Weird question re: emergency procedures while driving

The sad reality is if the driver passes out or has a seizure, by time the passenger realizes it and reacts it will probably be too late. A co worker of mine was in a horrific accident years ago, when he was driving a semi loaded with logs. He was just meeting a VW Van that started to swerve and it came right into the side of him. He tried to take evasive action and was already in the ditch when the van hit him. He said he seen the driver slumped over the wheel and his wife's terrified expression before impact. The man had died of a heart attack and the woman died instantly upon impact. He said it happened so fast but yet seemed an eternity. He has never forgot the horror of it all. If you have serious medical issues or are not feeling well DON'T DRIVE.

RE: Amazed and Disgusted

You have to admit, if you are not going to pick up your dog poop then it is better to lead your dog onto someone else's site.That would be the code of the ME first people! Just for the record I pick up after my dog.

RE: Used 3126b engine

First off sorry to hear of your trouble.That is a big labor job whichever way you go with it.I don't think that engine can be sleeved. It is a non sleeve engine. I would look at the truck wreckers in the state and see what they may have. they were a popular engine in the medium duty trucks. There is the rv wrecker that I have seen online vision Rv or something like that. Try to google it. They sell complete used engines from RV's with probably lower mileage.

RE: Why do people spell Cummins with a "ings" ?

The only thing that i got from this post is that grade three ers should be taught the correct spelling on Cummins. They should include Cummins in the national spelling bee!!

RE: Pulling a flatbed

Not only what is your Motorhome rated to pull but what is the rating on the hitch. Not all are rated for 10,000 lbs.

RE: Prevost engine swap possible?

I ran many Detroit 2 strokes over the years. The last one i had we up tuned it. We changed it up from 80 or 90 injectors to 110 injectors and a Detroit v12 pump. They are interchangeable. The cost i can't quite remember but was not real expensive. That gave out upwards of 500 HP and actually improved the fuel mileage. Yes they use a little oil but the harder you drive them the better they ran. They are noisier than most engines but are very cheap in comparison to maintain or rebuild. That truck that I had that engine in was pulling 63000 kg loads and was hard to pass. The Cats and Cummins of the day could not touch it. The engine swap you suggest would be very expensive to do. I changed on truck from a 8v71 to a Cummins and the costs went through the roof when you started having to replace radiator and all hoses including hydraulics fuel lines and wiring and it goes on and on.

RE: EXHAUST BRAKE SWITCH (When to turn on)

You can run with it on or off, it is personal preference. It will not hurt anything or cause carbon buildup. When the switch is on and you take your foot off the throttle the e brake will engage. As you slow down the Allison will shift down once it is in the right rpm parameters. It will keep shifting down as you slow down. If you look at your shift pad it will probably show 2nd gear. It won't go directly to 2nd but will work it;s way down as you slow down. On a long downhill that is fairly steep it is best to slow at the top of the hill and start down with the exhaust brake holding you back without having to use your brakes. This will save you from overheating your brakes and once they get really hot they will not hold you back. If you start down slow and it is too slow you can always go up a gear till you are comfortable. If you start down too fast you can overheat your brakes very quickly.

RE: Home septic tanks?

Depending on the size of the tank and how many people are using it will determine how often it should be pumped. If it is let go too long the solids in the tank can be pushed out into the field drains. Once they get clogged with solids your system is finished. If you get a good pumper truck guy they can probably advise on how long you can go between pumps.

RE: who says old people don't do stupid stuff

If your going to something stupid, do it in a group setting and then you can blame all the others for screwing up!
