My truck made it to 98,000 miles, and the head gaskets blew. Some went through three rear ends, some had multiple trannys, before 100,000 miles. These were all F-350-550 trucks. Most were the F-550's. Had a flat bed on them with tool boxes, generator, air compressor, threaders, and a host of tools. Never pulled anything more than a bumper pull trailer. Except a few like mine that stayed hooked up to a gooseneck. We had to have about 10 spare trucks just to keep everyone working. It was a nightmare. Finally went to the chevy gas burner one tons. We started getting 150k miles out of them, and never having to touch them. Literally, several went this long without ever having any issues, other than a/c switch or something minor going out. Never put a motor, tranny, or rearend in the first one. By the time I left, we had close to 60 of those chevy one tons, all gas, running around. Now we would have one every now and then give us issues, but never a motor or tranny or rear end. So, that's what we have stuck with.

Started off with a few dodge one tons in my company now. And they were better than the fords, but couldnt touch these chevys. Running all chevy one tons now. Got about 20 gas burners, and 6 duramax's.

Now, we do have two ford gas burner half ton 4x4s, and one gas burner 3/4 ton. I havent had any problems out of them. I like the ford half tons crew cabs over the chevy, for work.

I will never give up my duramax though...
Brother you have a lot of trucks.
So, I need one. I need a 1 ton dually to pull a trailer and a John deere 310 back hoe i'm thinking of buying. Have a good deal working on a 1500 hour 2004 extend-a-hoe for 31K. But no monies for the truck and trailer :-((
I'm going full speed ahead on that farm. The bible says to walk the land and claim it in his name and he will give it to you. I have a vision of betting the other two 1400 acre farms as well...

It had so much power, I could climb from the ground to 10,000 feet without any forward airspeed, and do it PDQ. I remember the jumpers would ask me to give them a 1 minute warning before passing 5,000 in the climb. That's where they set their AOD (parachute automatic opening devices) to open the chutes in case they became incapacitated in the exit or in free fall. THings happen, guys run into you, equipment knocks into you, you catch something unexpected on the way out of the ramp. Anyway just as I pulled power to take off I'd give them the 1 minute warning! Yep, it climbed that fast. I'd slow to like 60 knots, then pull around 80% power, which I believe a Black Hawk hovers at (A Chinook hovers at 40-42% power leaving huge reserves for picking stuff up like John Deere JD-550 bulldozers! ANyway with the power pulled in, I'd ask the junior pilot to lift his leg off the floor. We were actually pulling "g's" going straight up with muscle alone. Hey if you like 540 BB Chevys and build D-Max engines you couldn't help but love a Chinook. It is truely the Army's work horse in the stan, able to heft pretty good loads up onto those mountains.
I remember flying the Super Huey gunship over there. THere was a place where I used to cross a ridgeline in the Hindu-Kush mountain range. The lowest spot I could find was 12,300 feet. Some days we would climb and climb and circle and try to catch an up draft, but have to turn back because the aircraft couldn't struggle up and over. A hook would laugh at that!

Don, When did you take this picture of me on the ramp? Not cool sneaking up behind me like that.

I always wondered if you guys were as nervous as we were getting that close. I understand you can actually feel the thumping of the rotor blades, is that right? Does the bow wave created by my rotor system tend to push the herc up and away any? Can you feel it?
In the Stan a couple years ago I was flying along in an AW139, the one in my book. One of my aircraft, a Bell 214ST which has the largest two blade rotor system in the world came up behind me. Dammed if I couldn't feel it in my aircraft. The bow wave produced by that monster pushed my tail up! THe 2-1-4 guys refere to the effect as "the force."

A strange thing happened today. While staying into the throttle for some time I think the motor starved for fuel. I was doing it to see what EGT's I'd see. I noticed it stayed in the low 1200 range only hitting 1222 once. While approaching 90 mph the motor exibited the same behavoir as when it hits max speed and starts shutting off. THere is a possibility that I actually hit 95 and starved hit the limit, triggering fuel shutoff, but I'm close to being sure I was only at 90mph. With this tune and Ricks manifolds it gets to those speeds PDQ. Dunno, I just suspect I found the top end of the CP4 pump?????

Time for dual CP4s
My theory is-If you have to get out of a sticky situation. Then do it fast.

With your lift pump in place already, I would suspect you didn't drain the rails but rather hit the EGT defueling limit of the H&S. once you hit a certain EGT it can pull fuel to keep you from popping a motor. I don't know if you set yours or if they come preset even but I would look at that first.

^^^ What he said Don, De fuel Limit is Factory set At 1350, also I forgot if you had the speed o calibrated. The governor if not disabled when the tune is loaded will shut you down like you stated @ 96. with your set up you should easily be able to bury the needle. Happy Thanksgiving.....

I just installed my fass yesterday. Since installation my truck no longer falls on its face when wot on hot. Now my problem is that 1600 I saw on the pyro. Looking forward to having ricks manifolds and up pipes put on, on the 28th to see how much they come down.

Which EGT Sensor would the H&S be monitoring? Post Turbo I assume for anything remotely accurate?

His manifold EGT sensor feeds the EDGE CTS for display purposes.

He has an xrt pro so his H&S isn't monitoring anything. I would have to assume its his manifold only...... Seeing how that's where it should be. Pre-turbo temps are much more important than post turbo temps.
