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: Lipstick at school

That is kind of like the stories about motel and hotel cleaners and how they wash the drinking glasses.

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!

RE: Low beams headlights not working

I just went through the same thing with my Chevy Trailblazer. No low beams and no daytime running lights. There is a module that controls that and it was bad. The high beams worked and the fuses for the low beams were good also. I suspect that your problem will be the same.

RE: Safety issue need temp fix

I have the same problem. The seal is shot between the two panes allowing moisture in. I carefully and I mean carefully drilled a couple small holes between the panes on the end that opens. I then hold the hair dryer toward those holes and it will clear the moisture. The glass will be stained or etched but you will still be able to see out. It is a very temporary fix. I still want to get mine fixed or replaced permanently.

RE: For those that stayed north this year.

We are staying home this year because of a medical reason. I agree the weather here in BC sucks with all the rain and wind. We were really looking forward to Yuma. So if I think of the money not spent and the exchange saved,hey, we're makin money! No I didn't make myself feel better.

RE: Canadians Avoiding US due to Gun Violence

To the OP. We are Canadian and travel routinely in the US. We are down here now and have noticed no shortage of Canadian snowbirds so I would think the majority are coming down. As far as violence...meh, the mass shootings can happen anywhere in todays world. Generally the people are nice here and the south is still warm and pleasant. I wouldn't sweat the headlines. As far as Canadians not having guns in the US, those are US rules, not Canadian. Foreigners (generally speaking) are not allowed to have weapons in the US. Gun ownership in Canada is not far off of American gun ownership. Seems to be a myth out there that gun ownership is illegal in Canada. Who knows where it starts. Hardware stores, Canadian Tire, Catalogs. Take your pick and go shopping. Good info John,I couldn't agree more. Canada has its share of gun violence as well in the major centres. We are all going to die of something! I too was concerned about the low dollar and had just made up my mind to go south anyway. A medical situation has now come up so I will have to stay home and save my puny dollars.
