WOW..alot more than i thought from MD. i worked at the allison plant when being built and after. place is cleaner than a doctors office. i actually got a certificate from a gen manager i did some work for. took it right to koons and used it.
I have a good friend that lives in Huntingtown. He refers to Calvert as "The Good County". I keep teasing him that may have been true 6-8 years ago, but with all of the growth in Prince Frederick, "The Good County" has all of the traits of the DC Metro area.
Silvrmax, I did the tranny myself. It was fun, need basic tools, snap ring pliers etc. Have to come up with a rig for the c1/2 compression trick. As for EFI, it is simply amazing. I think it will take me years to master this. I have been playing around with it, using some tunes from the repository, and Trips tow tune. It definetly has the best potential to make the most power and the greatest driveability. In the hands of an experienced tuner it must be amazing! Cant wait till Cecil opens!
If anyone has a OBS style truck like mine with the HVAC controls the same as the ones in the attached picture, I need a favor.
My vent/floor/defrost vents have been acting funny and I want to see if the motor is flaking out or if the control panel is flaking out. I'd like to see if someone would meet up with me and let me pull their controls out and try them in mine to check.
For your inconvienance I can either throw some cash/beer/food or whatever at ya, or I can good ahead and install a high idle switch for you, since the dash panel will be off anyway. I have the wiring/switch/cpu harness pins needed to do this.
If you want to drive down to DC I would consider a high idle switch in trade for the temporary use of my a/c controls. I live about 30 mi West of DC. Might not be worth the drive though. I would meet you but I'm in the middle of a kitchen re-model job right now and I have been loading the truck up for daily runs to the dump.
I'm on my way home to colorado from a big 4wd event (Ultimate Adventure) and I'm pretty sure we lost an injector in my LB7. Engine idles super rough, lots of grey/white smoke and balance rate on #8 is 14.
We're near Flatwoods on I-79 in West Virginia and should have another truck and trailer...
