    M929A2 Hour meter not functioning

    Normal hour meters work when ignition power is on, some do go through a sender that is used as a switch to only record actual run time in the oil rifle....oil pressure closes the switch to send power to the meter....Did you look in the TM section for the manual that works for your truck?

    M923a2 coolant system repair

    No paint on the inside, coolant will eventually take it off. You can powder coat, that works well.

    Still not starting or idling

    The book I have doesn't have p/n's that high, it was published in 1997. Call Cummins, you'll need your engine s/n. A good parts guy can figure out what uses that p/n injector. Usually, marine injectors are flowed higher than automotive. Boats don't have down hill, they are constant power...

    Still not starting or idling

    The pump returns a boat load of fuel. To see if it is an injector issue you need to see if there is flow from the injector return....the small line that is on top of all the injectors that terminates at the fuel filter inlet fitting. The injectors use every drop of fuel supplied to them, there...

    M923a2 coolant system repair

    Early engines had plastic or whatever it was made of but that didn't last long, maybe 6 mos to a year into production. Easy to look at, 2 bolts. Usually if no coolant is pushing out the overflow, not overheating. So if the gauge says 230 and no coolant leaving the radiator, fan not on, not...

    M923a2 coolant system repair

    Looks like a Freightliner radiator. Was it pushing coolant out of the overflow? What temp did it get to? Gauges are known to be incorrect.

    Fuel issue questions on in line fuel pump

    Check the fuse on top of the in tank pump, that might be why it doesn't work. Also, there is a rubber hose between the pick up and in tank pump that likes to deteriorate. Makes it so when there is 1/2 tank, it will die or do just what you are experiencing.

    Three Ring Pistons v. Four Ring Pistons?

    Yes, the pistons are the same. Rings are the same, but you shouldn't re use rings. I won't say it can't be done, because I have done it to get stuff up and running to finish jobs out in a dirt field or on an oil platform, but 90% of the time if reused, it turns into an oil pump/blow-by queen...

    Flame heater in exhaust pipe

    Why do Fords sound like something you would see in a diaper? NOT smooth at all, worse after they are "chipped or tuned".

    need hemtt Detroit Diesel 8v92ta mechanic near Sacramento

    I think they go in the head or block to locate he gasket...keeps it in place. Most likely the block, it would be hard to keep the gasket on the head while installing it ;)

    Flame heater in exhaust pipe

    Yes, a very yellow, smoky flame, but not when there is running engine air flow, I think propane, like someone said above would work well.
