  1. Yes I have a feeling the officer will be on the lookout for the truck and it probably would not go in our favor. I will be doing what Joey mack has done. Thanks for all the input.
  2. If it would help anyone the last 6 of the vin is 140084. I asked mack today when I called about the cluster and they couldn't tell me the wiring or what pressure switch did what they say there system just says pressure switch.
  3. That was my thought also. I don't know if it changed or not but just hoping I can fix one up pretty easy. Really dont want to run into the same cop and not have one working I guess.
  4. I've got an 01 ch613 (dump truck now) the D.O.T just shut down the truck today for the low air pressure buzzer was inoperative the light works fine and the buzzer will off and on if you slap the top of the dash. The buzzer is in the instrument cluster and not replaceable mack says. The cluster is about 800 but 5 weeks out here in our area. I'm looking to see if someone can tell me what wires at the back of the cluster I could tie into to install a different buzzer or where the buzzer gets its signal from. Just need to get the truck back in operation the odds of running into the same cop here a
  5. I will check it in the morning when I get over to the truck. I dont think it makes oil but I'll have to verify that with the driver. I looked at the wiring for the coolant level sensor at the sensor and did not see coolant in the connector. I will look at the exam connections. Thinking about it now I remember trying to start it a few days ago and it will act like its gonna start for a second it did this a couple of times but would not go ahead and run. Oil psi while cranking is reading low runs at 25 hot at idle 50 while driving. It's hard to see exactly what it is while turning the engine ove
  6. On the fuel pump it does not have a filter. Just the small gear pump with the plastic gear I know that those have been known to let the plastic gear spin on the shaft and not give proper fuel pressure but seems like u would have running issues.
  7. Ok I will see if I can get blink codes out of it today. I have a laptop with jpro but its not working at the moment hard drive crashed. Anyway I can pump the hand primer till your blue in the face with really no change. Just changed the coolant surge tank from the plastic 2 piece to the aluminum one from mack it came with a new sensor was hoping that would do it but it had no affect. Starter was replaced less than 2 months ago but I will check connections and ground. Batteries are a year old and did clean the cables and nothing changed.
  8. First the truck started out as not starting while the engine was at operating temperature now it doesn't want to start when cold. A little starting fluid will start it hot or cold. After the first start it doesn't matter if it runs all day or 15 minutes it will not restart on its own without spray. Trucks runs normal after it starts. This is the ac etech 360 hp engine or whatever the right term is for it. There is fuel in the davco filter check valve is holding. Replaced the return fitting with the check in it on passenger side of engine. Fuel pump possibly? Just need some places too look. Tha

  10. I see what you are saying. So change cam, heads, unit pumps and injectors ok. Has anyone ever changed one of these engines over like this anyone that has could you share your experience with me.. did it work out ok after was it a waste of time etc.. thanks guys
  11. I found some answers to my questions on the forum I guess I should have looked before posting questions. But can I make this work by changing heads and cam or just heads? Sorry to bother
  12. Are the bottom ends of these engines the same? Meaning can we change the heads ?
  13. Yes the old engine has the line between the heads. Yes the new engine has springed push tubes on the exhaust valves
  14. I'm having some issues here and hopefully someone here could help me out. Ok this may be lengthy but here it goes. We have an 01 mack dump truck with the e7 427 that spun a main so the owner decided to buy a used salvage yard engine which is a 2003 e7 427 we removed all of its exterior components and replaced them with the old ones. The "new" engine had Jake's the old didn't so we removed them. The engine cranks and idles great runs good on flat ground but loaded it's a dog. It will fall on its face on a hill loaded or unloaded also. We changed injectors with the old ones no change.
