  1. Pull the front driveshaft off the front diff. Split the power divider case by removing flange bolts. Inspect and replace inner cam and peanuts. Outer cam is seldom bad. Reassemble with two rubber bands holding peanuts into cage, rotate slightly as you engage. Clean magnet tray. Fill power divider before running.

    Thanks for all the help ended up putting new cam and rollers in working on #6 eup tappet bore pin part# 20706385 are these just pressed in? having a hard time trying to get it to tap out, does anybody know of a certain way to remove pins? Thanks!!

    Interference fit. I’ve always pounded them out with a punch. Not always fun. Imagine #6 is nearly impossible to get a decent swing on. 

  3. I'd check oil pressure spec, I'd run a continuity checker to the pump switch to visibly watch when my pump position sensor is opening/closing relative to heads coming in and out of function (maybe even a makeshift test light), adjust overhead brake according to attached sheet and last, (if that didn't help) install a rebuild kit/update if they still make them.

    Cool video, good stuff. Looks like this stuff was promoted as the original "energy drink", before that was a thing.

    Interesting note from their website in the history section:

    1885-1899: Moxie Nerve Food invented and patented in 1885.

    I find it curious it was originally called 'nerve food'. They also made 'many wild curative claims'. Hair loss? Drink more Moxie. Marital problems? Erectile disfunction? Drink Moxie, and all your problems will be gone.

    MackTechnician, when you tried it, did your chosen ailment get better?


    Yes and no.

    I figured the “nerve food” would allow me to dance confidently like the Gumby brother on the video. No such luck. I instead danced more confidently......but like Forest Gump. Hope that answers your question?

  5. I’d check on what components I need for the south side of the firewall. Kit may not include 2 pos switch, relays(qty 2/hi-lo), 10 amp fuse for hole 22(if you don’t already have one there for neutral switch). I’d also get a jake adjuster feeler fork. The housing won’t be painted so I’d grab a can of Mack Gray(assuming Volvo hasn’t discontinued it). Check the supplied valve cover ribbons to make sure they gave you 4 (not 2) and if they are bonded (updated) and not open ended(string cut). Replace with updated bonded ribbon if not.

    my CL tach does some funky shit sometimes too. like id me at a set MPH on the highway and the RPM will start to jump around but it does sound like the motor is raising its rpm speed as well. but its does it fast. not sure what it is. doesnt anyways do it. never could understand or come to idea what would do it. 

    Swap in a known-good tach head.

  7. It's not you, Lou, it's the Truck. It's very fixable. 370 is a perfect candidate.

    I'm a little suspicious of your friend blowing your doors off with his 2006 CV713 w/same set up? Does he go by the handle Old Red Mack, Nelm, Mackncheese, Big John, Dcrow,  03 Big Red, Mackvette, Mudman, Byrohoe or R.E.D.? If yes, then he's keeping secrets so he can laugh at you when he flies past you coming out of the pit.

    I’m having the same problem.After the starter motor was replaced,the engine just cranks and will not start.Fuses good.Power and ground to VECU and EECU good.Any help would be appreciated.Thanks.

    Go back in the chassis, dig around and find the power leads or ground run you did not attach to the starter post. Not everyone is getting fed.

  9. I don’t disagree with necessity. You can eventually get sick and tired of a lifetime parole for which you get no credit for good behavior, like with Dave. 

    One time I went in and there was this old fella doing the tests. He looked like he was in great shape for his age, solid built and about retirement age. Talked to him for a while and realized he was one of those disciplined life military guys. Real frank about things, straight talk, no B.S. I asked him “you do this pretty regular, how many do you get?”. He said “I never know with the urine tests, but I had a guy come in a few weeks back, early morning, not a urine test, he pulled the random breathalyzer. He blew positive, a real low number. I said to the guy blowing “what you been drinking, this is suppose to read zero?” He told me “Super Bowl Sunday and his team won”. I threw out the test and zero’ed one for him. You can’t expect this guy to pass clean the morning after a Super Bowl!!”.
