    RPM goes up.

    Lay under your engine bellhousing and look up the side of the bell. Are you getting an active code?

  3. Wouldn’t want to know anyone who owns one out of fear of being asked for help replacing a head.

    IRS private Army

    Obama weaponized the IRS to stall out Tea Party groups applying for tax exemption..... phase 2 was shoot them if they got tax exemptions.

    another Jake brake question.

    I drove a Telma once, behind an E9. Headlights go dim when you power it up, but those things really did it. The variable resistance lever was slick.

    Crazy. Suppose the modern day bootlegger in the hills of Tennessee may have night vision, bump stock and body armor. You’ll recall in 2013 the department of Homeland Security purchased 1.6 billion rounds of ammo on top of what they had. A good portion of which were rounds not able to be used in war due to no full metal jacket......but could be legally used on citizens.

    another Jake brake question.

    Let's not argue. I think we can all agree on this...… If your in a mid 90's PLN...…... With just the factory Jake, well adjusted...…. you will be able to decel on a mountain pass so long as you are Bobtail and you hit a large elk that is jammed under the steer axle skidding like a big, bloody meat wheel chock and your running against a 30 MPH headwind...… the speed control will be perfect.

    another Jake brake question.

    My mentor at the shop told me he had a design for a PLN jake assist. It used the jake relay power-out to apply 10 PSI to the truck air brake system with a solenoid operated valve, then magnify the exhaust noise with a mic piped into the truck stereo system.

    another Jake brake question.

    The PLN like yours never produced much brake force on their best day. It was more of an engineering issue, not a mechanical issue.

    2000 rd 688s

    Pull an engine oil sample to check for high iron or coolant. Folks like to unload the truck when sampling goes south, especially on auctions where you don’t have to look the buyer in the eye.

    RPM goes up.

    you have an active fault. There is a thread in the middle of this engines page, about 12 ahead of yours. It says “2000 e7 427 hi idle”. I have two code listed which cause the 900 RPM default.

    RPM goes up.

    Is it going to a specific RPM and holding or just wandering all over?

    Florida High School Shooting - 17 confirmed dead

    For the same reason Dzhokhar Tsarnaev hasn’t been executed........ They give them time to find flakey girls who want to be their correspondent prison girlfriend, for injected cocktail drugs to be outlawed, a chance at getting insanity sympathy, to drag it out and drive up the cost of capital punishment so they can argue against it, to work on the book deals and so they can appeal again and again to find a mistake, juror impropriety, sympathetic liberal judge, or other loop hole to free them when the whole Earth knows they smoking-gun-did-it.

    New Gears!?

    You out west? Assume MO= Missouri?

    New Gears!?

    You won’t over-work the engine. You will be dropping out of the top hole more often and losing some of your low crawl.

    EU countries agree to 30 percent cut in truck CO2 emissions

    I’d believe that. Was watching a study on real, market legal, Parmigiana Reggiano cheese. Can only be made in one spot on earth by cows that are grass fed. Reason being the enzymes and bacteria digested from the earth in Northcentral Italy which remain a live culture the unpasteurized milk they use.

    Bully Dog

    While taking the kids to a Christmas event ran into a guy I've known for 10 years. Had no idea he was an English Bulldog breeder. Snapped a couple pics of the fella. 1.5 years old. The massive head/neck on him has to be stealing traction for the rear drives. Seemed like the nicest dog till I tried to pet him...…. Guessing he is still testy about the Volvo acquisition thing? I left him alone.

    Merry Christmas to all of you!

    Blessed Merry Christmas Gentz!!!!
  19. Not a bit uncommon for aged shift cover soft parts to lose elasticity in winter and begin to leak. For an o ring to seal it has to be willing to distort into the shoulder of its land.

    Santa stopped early in a Penski Truck.

    Neighbors aren’t going to be singing Silent Night! I’ve owned 9 Fords and not a single Chev.....what’s the block? 3 plugs on side is not small. 454?

    Trump's appointees

    The best thing a man could invest himself in......where did you study or teach? Agree on last para, except our Republic is theoretically the best roll model on Earth if it’s people have inhibitions and impulse control which takes us right back to “Decay”.

    Bless that old feminist for her firecracker zeal, but how many times can she be jump started before her battery shorts out? Hopefully Chuck and Nancy will donate one of their bilateral internal organs if need be.

    Trump's appointees

    If the United States would become the isolationist nation Ron and Rand dream of this globe would look a lot different in short order. Congress was full of non interventionist “Paul’s” at the beginning of WW2 and when it was over they became the new interventionists via hard lessons. It’s an inviting thought to just wash hands and go home to make babies. Problem is China/Russia/Iraq/ISIS/etc/etc are poised and ready to fill any and all vacancies we create. Realistically, our greatest security threat isn’t what’s going on outside our borders, it’s that Americans have failed to identify what the characteristics of good leadership look like and then general Agnosticism. Can’t wait till Kid Rock or P Diddy are president. Maybe we can have a rap music curriculum in our schools and pot application course for home Ec.

    2006 CH Shake/Rough Idle

    Your PLN (tuned-up) is a smooth as silk compared to the E-Techs. They are a choppy devil till they are under load. Start’em up on a cold morning your neighbor will think you bought a steel kettle drum.

    E7 350 losing power

    If that was a work order line item we would be well set. Since we can’t touch it you need to provide a long descriptive commentary so we can throw some shot-in-the-dark educated guesses back’atcha.
