Anybody remember the Kysor sentinel systems on older diesel trucks ? They worked fairly well at averting total disasters.

Yes. All you had to do when the red light and the buzzer came on was shut down the engine


Of course, I also know a dimwit who told me he "thought he could make it." after the warnings came on.

Ordered the new motor yesterday. Upgraded to the Banks intake and had to get the Banks intake tube and a set of injectors. Total was $7,200. Supposed to be built in the next week. Mechanic is scheduled to pull the old motor on the 11th and strip it down so the core can be returned as soon as the new motor arrives. Expecting another $1,800 to the mechanic to do the swap. Should be ready for hunting season on October 5th.

I was just thinking about this earlier today, wondering how it was going. My new 12/120v freezer came today. SWMBO is breaking it in with some apples.

The new engine, Banks intake, injectors and injector tubes have all arrived arrived and looks mighty pretty. The engine was 10 days late due to shipper delays. Sat on the dock 5 days in New Mexico and another 5 days in Denver.

This shipper delay has put everything way behind schedule. My mechanic is just now getting my truck back on the shop schedule. Hoping this next week it will be all done. Replacing the K&N air filter with a Hastings paper filter too.

Sent an email to the engine builder telling him I want my $200 shipping fee refunded. Maybe, or maybe not, I will get the refund.

so the deal is for Dodge or Fords is to get a BHAF "https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=bhaf+filter+for+cummins&qpvt=bhaf+filter+ for+cummins" or a paper air filter that is 2x times the size to fix that "dusting" problem

Update. Getting the engine out was problematic. Since the engine was seized, the torque converter could not be removed since the engine could not be turned over. In addition the radiator housing frame had to be cut out in order to remove the engine with the torque convert. Too long to remove to normal way.

After it was out we found the #6 cylinder was seized at TDC so instead of torching the rod he had to carefully slit the rod cap without damaging the crank. A few extra hours for that.

Swapped all the external parts from the old engine to the new, slipped it back in and welded up the rad housing. Then hooked up all the electrical. Turned it over and bled the injectors and it still would not fire. Another day testing to find my injector pump was only putting out 2psi. New pump on order.

Hopefully it gets here in about a week or ten days.

Tough luck there. It will be as good as new when you get it back though!
