  1. How's it goin??? if you fix it, let the forum know what fixed it... jojo
  2. check valves are a common issue with this complaint. The 03 engine probably has 2 spin-on filters at the top left corner, but I have had some with davco 382 filters and replaced the little check valve in the inlet of the filter housing. no pics of the engine so I can only guess what is on it. the hand primer at the right front corner on the fuel pump is another part that can allow air to enter, or fuel to leak out, in some rare cases the fuel pump leaks into the engine, usually a high level of thin engine oil will occur. dry rotted fuel lines can cause this if fuel is 'bleeding' through the lines... lots of good info is posted here, jojo
  3. do you have a DAVCO filter on it? If so replace the $7.00 check ball in it... 15 minutes,,,, MACKS is right, lots of postings on this issue, and please post the fix,,,
  4. What year are the new trucks? the CV doesnt have an acc relay like previous trucks, it has a relay block plugged in ,,, to the left of the fuse panel... If you just want to run power for light s etc... depending on what the demand is,,, there are plugs in the dash harness that are not used and you can use one of them, and add a fuse to the circuit.. you can also I.D. the wires in the dash by reading the numbers on them. The fuse number is printed on the wire. check it with a DVOM to ensure you have the correct wire related to the fuse socket in the panel. there is probably 10+ ways to do this.. You can also connect to the relay on the fire wall to get power, or the EPDM on the fire wall left of the steering shaft... Someone else will chime in with more exact info... jojo
  5. with respect...... more info is needed. what is the issue? Year?
  6. Busted.... yep, ur right i forgot, also forgot MH's... truth is I have liitle knowledge on 'U's' (mini DM's),,, but,,, I did work on a bunch MH postal trucks with air starters, back in 2000-?. so.. above the chassis and engine i'm no good... jojo
  7. Salisbury......... thank you joe... I work hard to do what I do.... I'm 3 hours away from MoparMike.... any 'R' Model is right up my alley... CH,CL, CX,, CV, and so-on.... I luv'em.... JOJO... Oh yeah,,, DM's too...
  8. Any guess's on What country will dominate the Olympics... I know who I pick..... just read the label on every thing you buy, other than food items... jojo
  9. open the hood, on the firewall towards the center is a pressure switch... thats brake lights. you can cross the wires and the lights will come on.. its safe to do this. if no brake lights, keep digging as instructed,, if the brake lights come on,, replace the pressure switch .. jojo
  10. Full tank pressure, 90+ when the truck is low on air, flip the range button while you build air pressure. when the T.P.V. gets above 85 psi, you can here the range clutch shift. jojo
  11. Hmmmmm, so if you push the button with the key off, will it still display the odometer? Sorry I dont have any good answers right now..jojo
  12. So after doing an inframe re-build, with another cam and re-man heads, and a PAI engine kit.... She purrs like a Dog!!! we had some delays due to parts availabilty, so if any of you out there are planning on rebuilding/ repairing youre 'not very old' Mack.. do as much parts searching as you can before 'downing' the truck... on this one, the center exhaust manifold was cracked and Mack said, none til October.... I searched for a week and found nothing... then I just told him to take the manifold off his '96 E-7 and bolt it on for now.. It fit perfectly, without modifying the oil tube or rotating the turbo,,, Joey
  13. do you have 2 buttons on the front of the gauge panel? if so... are the rubber boots missing allowing dust to get in the buttons? I assume that this is a road truck and not a dump truck since its a CXN... but anyway, try to clean the gauge panel with dry compressed air, I suggest removing the cluster to do this... its easy to do.. jojo
