Shop Talk

So a while back I had made a thread on this and it turned out pretty good. A lot of you will remember since you had posted some really good stories/pictures. Sadly it somehow went missing and I had a few people ask me what happened to it. So I’m gonna start it again. Basically anything goes. Post pics of trucks, engine builds, tools, toolboxes, your shop or where you work, carnage pics of parts or whatever, toys, boats, guns, jobs your working on, etc! Tell stories of engines blowing up, diagnostic stories, etc. You get the point, just like a bunch of guys talking In the shop. Most of you will remember the old one. Once it gets going it will figure itself out. Great chance for people to show off a little and post where it doesn’t fit other categories. If you had posted pics/stories in the past and remember could you please post again?? Thanks.

Yup, didn’t make it all the way through the CAC. Took a lot of rinsing though. Haha. This is why you let your engine idle after running it hard and let the oil cool down. The shaft was blued and just had enough.

When you restart it have an air shutoff handy!!! Our shop had a Detroit series 60 run away from the oil fumes on the CAC!!!! Apparently not washed good enough???

Joey that’s awesome! I love new tools haha. Well On your way to pretty much  being able to do everything. Funny most people just see that as a cabinet with “junk” little do they know how much money is there!

i always remove the boot from the intake manifold.  this eliminates any chance of fuel oil's to get sucked in..  jojo

There was a kid in school that had rebuilt one and it took off on him. No shut off valve needed. He grabbed a hammer and cleaned all the fuel lines off! 🤣

he got lucky, a lot of times they are sucking engine oil  and running on it...  its a scary time when it goes off...  takes a set of Ball's to jump in and try to shut it down, before the boom...  jojo

There was a Mack (it was red) in the class that they just couldn’t kill, one time they forgot to put rod bearings in it and they ran it. Ran for a few minutes. Crank was fine haha then the next time something happen that it decided to just eat the liners. Every time the crank came around it took more and more off until there was nothing left. I think two liners went down. Still fine. To this day I think it’s still ticking away. Here was the one I always liked to work on. Cummins nta855.

Joey don’t you have a service truck? Are you currently using that tool on any engine builds now?

cummins M-11 ?

Cummins nta855. Never ran and no one ever had interest in it until I got there. Everyone paired up and went for an engine. It was the only one left so I went for it. That thing could smoke you out of the shop though. It had that Cummins PT pump and you adjusted timing with gasket thickness at the cam followers in the side of the block.
