Something internal is burning out. More like a needle bearing. I had some bearings in the oil when i drained it. It ran fine and sounded fine but had a noise when i let off the accelerator after 40mph. I need to bust it open. It had over 30,000 miles on it. maybe more I forget but it probably was not designed to go that long. I know it required 40w oil change every 10,000 miles. It also ran a little hot. Sometimes I would have a 240 degree input bearing temp but according to a few techs i talked to on it said that "well a HET has the same case and it towing the M1000 with an Abrams we are sure is over 240 degrees and probably reaches 300 or more.Your HEMTT T-case died?
I get up your way to Rock Island Arsenal every so often. Maybe soon!Thanks for ALL the info and pics ya post here on Steelsoldiers! Done some really cool things to the truck and ya just keep adding on!! Love the youtube vids also!! THANKS so sharing, maybe some day when I am in the area we could "meet and greet"...........
Take care and keep up the great work!
Crayons are over rated!!Well tomorrow is the day for the intercooler install. Should have it back together by tomorrow afternoon. Hopefully. I am going to be using the NHC250 intake manifold on this truck in place of the aftercooler. The NHC intake has a downward angle off the engine which would be better suited for an easy route to the intercooler. The N14 intake was an over the top entry and It would have complicated the bends and what not.
Drivers side will be a downward with a reducer from 5in to 4in off the manifold then i am going to come out with the pipe to just outside the frame width and 90 degree bend it and run it directly to the intercooler.
Passengers side should be pretty easy. It is going to be a 90 off the turbo to the intercooler and 30 degree silicone boot at the intercooler end.
I will be running the coolant line that went thru the aftercooler together hooking the 1.5" hose to the 1" hose so it can continue to circulate thru the upper radiator section on its own.
Seems simple enough. Least it did when i drew it out in crayon.
ive read all the mods that you did in your 923 and it looks so dope.swapping that engine + all those extra things.i wanna do the same doesnt cost fortune but makes hauling better if i ever get to
What would be the best bet to match 70-75mph,change to 7155,some manual,or newel allison like 4560 or so.
