Hmnn. Yes, my new ride is a 1996 K3500 dually 4x4 (former ambulance): 6.5L turbodiesel at GVWR 12000. If this counts, sign me up!

Sounds to me like this guy ought to discover something even more fun, even more intense - G-I-R-L-S !


I do agree with one point in his a bit dramatic enjoyment of his - the question of WEAKNESS !


I am a bit disappointed with one aspect - the question of limited cooling capacity. Let me explain.


I make trips back and forth between the high-country of northern Arizona in the cooler months to So. Calif., and during the summer months, to the water playgrounds. These trips involve pulling three axle trailers running around 13,000 lbs.


When I had my V-10 Ford Excursion, it would pull the notorious "Needles Grades" even in over 110 degree temp, without the water or transmission temp. gauges getting excited.


With my 2005 3500 "dualie" ( Duramax and Allison BONE STOCK) I have to go to part-throttle and under 1,800 rpm in order to avoid "over-temp" situations.


Seems to me at this late stage in automotive engineering history, heavy duty vehicles should have adequate cooling systems with plenty of reserve.


Going thru all these posts in this forum, it is clear that there is a problem, with various solutions.


One solution I did not see discussed, is the phenomena of how hot my floor-boards get on the passenger side. Clearly, that "cat" in front of the muffler is radiating an incredible amount of heat.


I do NOT want to run into situations where the truck's computers "sense" something and start screwing me up.


Has anyone in here tried what seems to me to be a significant source of back-pressure & over-heating - i.e. REMOVING THE CAT ( I see that one supplier who I am not familiar with - "Kennedy Diesel" advertises what appears to be a "drop in" replacement for the "front-pipe & CAT assembly" for under two hundred bucks. ).


So - that's my question - would removing the CAT only, leaving my 3500 Duramax-Allison otherwise bone-stock, increase my cooling system margins? Would the computer "sense" the reduced "back-pressure" and screw me up ?

The 2005 models (LLY) due to a design flaw, had a significant lack of cooling, unlike previous or later iterations of the duramax. Deleting the cat would provide a freer flowing exhaust, but not much effect on temp drops. Kennedy Diesel is a well respected vendor here, and they provide good knowledge - not just here to sell stuff. Keeping cooling stack cleaned is big issue with these trucks. My LLY got warm, but never overheated before I sold it. The 2008 (LMM) I have now pulls same loads with much better ease and cooler temps than the LLY did.

[QUOTE=TiredFarmer; . . . . . . Kennedy Diesel is a well respected vendor here, and they provide good knowledge - not just here to sell stuff. Keeping cooling stack cleaned is big issue with these trucks. . . . . .[/QUOTE]


+ + + + + + +


Thanks for the posts - my knowledge of diesels is quite limited, so this is one hell of a valuable forum !


Yes - was very impressed with KENNEDY - I phoned them, spoke to this "John" fellow. He was incredibly patient - took considerable time to try and help me out with some info.


Here's something I found interesting ( I have some degree of knowledge and experience with "spark ignition" motors...practically nothing on "compression ignition" ones.


Kennedy tells me that with their computer pack, I can "re-time" my LLY. I had no idea that "timing" the injectors had very much the same effect on a diesel as advancing the spark on a spark-ignition motor. (for those of you who do not know, the smog regs. require mfg's to "time" their motors so that they run "late" - meaning, they waste a lot of energy that would otherwise be utilized as mechanical energy, but gets blown out the exhaust as wasted heat energy to comply with smog regs.).


Pretty obviously, "advancing" the timing (again, on either a diesel or a gasoline motor) is going to make it run better, more efficiently, and cooler.


So thanks again for the "steer" to this "Kennedy" outfit - I have seen their ads in the past - had NO idea the guy is that eager to help those of us who are not well-informed on diesels.


As a side-note, I am not a "young-un" - so you guys will have to be patient with me - I am not "up" on how you folks have mangled American-English.


For example, I did not know that the term "cooling stack" applies to what in my generation we called the "radiator".


The term "rims" also confused me. I did not know that when you kids say the word "rims"...you actually mean WHEELS.


Let me explain. In the early days of autos and trucks, rims were separate from the wheels themselves. At some point in the early 1930's, on a pretty-much industry wide basis, we went to what we call "drop center" wheels - the wheel and the rim of course were stamped out separately, but welded into one pice.


That is why my generation knows that when we say "wheel"...we mean both the wheel itself, and the rim. I am not aware of any wheels made in the past 50-70 years that have a detachable "rim' - that is what thru me off.

Hi, 6686L:
I've never served in the Armed Forces, but I DO recognize his "rifle" reference.
He's clever, committed-- and funny.
Shows how we are each All-IN with this 65L 3500!
