  1. Don't think that I'm crazy, but I had one driving me crazy, checked the pressure and pressure was low, changed the box great pressure, same exact problem, I disconnected the steering column and all was fine. The problem was the bearing on top of the housing for the double u-joints. The truck was a bear to steer, I changed that bearing and you could steer the truck with one finger. Now it is a must for any truck that comes into the shop for a service, that bearing gets oiled as part of the service.
  2. That's what I was thinking, but wasn't sure, I didn't want to be stuck with a 3000 pound paper weight Thank you so much for taking the time to reply it is greatly appreciated. Frank
  3. I have a 2000 RD with an E7 330-350, with the ECM on the passenger side. My engine block has a crack in it and I want to replace the engine with a good used engine. When I look into used engines they ask me what side the ECM is on. I have a shot to by an engine out of a 1999 MR fire truck with an E7-350 with only 23,000 miles, but I have no way of asking what side the ECM is located on. Do I need to know that specifically or is it a non issue, such as, Don't worry all 99's are on the passenger side. If it does make a difference, what is the difference? Is it just a matter of the ECM harnesses and is there a way to switch the parts from the existing engine to relocate the ECM on the new engine to be able to use in my truck.
