    I've decided to do a Cummin's conversion

    I had just noticed that I had posted images of my GM shift cable attached to the top of the Dodge shift lever which worked fine however; I found attaching the cable under the shift lever and using a Teflon bushing it made shifting super smooth and more inline with cable assembly.

    Hummer fan setup installed

    Nope 'not working.' Only problem I see is for those using a VOV on the P/S pump whe installing anything else into the P/S system 'like my hydro-winch & PSC P/S pump.' GM had many issues w/VOV which are compounded when adding other components into the mix.

    Time for some rust repair on the Tahoe.

    I suspect you will get the hang of it sooner than later and in the end it will be rated "excellent too."

    I've decided to do a Cummin's conversion

    FERM correct me if I'm wrong "the ALLISON runs larger lines than 1/2 or?"

    I've decided to do a Cummin's conversion

    Interesting, it seems you had a B&M LONG 'low pressure drop' (LPD) cooler that didn't work correctly I had the same type of problem with a large LONG LPD cooler myself and "no the manufacturer didn't stand by the product." As the aux coolers go worst to best performance are tube/fin, plate...

    I've decided to do a Cummin's conversion

    Remember which models? 'These only have 3/16" gap at the chassis rails so real tight, I wonder why the Earls run cooler as the B&M's are fin/plate design?'

    I've decided to do a Cummin's conversion

    Thanks, I had put lot's of costy upgrades into the 47RH transmission and want to protect it as much as I can. OH and it was my first 47RH build too I was taken back by how easy it all was however, I had spent the most hours ever on any transmission with the valve body mods alone.

    I've decided to do a Cummin's conversion

    Made some more head way with my conversion. I installed a Teflon bushing on the shift cable at the shift lever. Have the front transmission coolers assembled w/8-AN fittings using 500 degree F capacity Teflon braided hose from transmission to heat exchanger then to front coolers then Nylon SS...

    Time for some rust repair on the Tahoe.

    Simply because the 6.6 DI fueling is far greater than the 6.5td.

    Best trans route for my swap???

    May want to recheck planets between the NP 241 & NP 242 as generally they all have the same part number aside form the wide chain optioned NP 241 units. To the best of knowledge H3 NP242 cases have a very high rate of failure.

    You may as well make room for a 4" or larger diameter down-pipe too...............

    Best trans route for my swap???

    I think I have a cast t-case adapter listed in "FOR SALE'" for the 4L80 it will mount most any NP case from k2500/3500 that has the higher spline count otherwise the input gear can be changed out in case. NP 242 has issues..........IMO the NP 241 is a much better choice.

    I'm in the process of doing the ifs swap to leaf spring straight axle front end. Was wondering what axle I need. Was told 78 to 79 Ford 1 ton.

    There are many brake upgrades to include quad front calipers too for DANA 60, quads can even be fabricated for many rear diffs too.

    I've decided to do a Cummin's conversion

    I have both of my large B&M Hy Tek fin/plate coolers w/fans ready for mounting between the front chassis rails from the 1st x-member to the tailing edge of the front bumper.....waiting on AN-8 hose fittings for the SS braided Teflon hose and I will be using the newer gen. Ram Cummins torque...

    How does TrboDyn compare to Amsoil?

    All reasons why aftermarket has provided methods to cool down fluids to acceptable ranges and provided great filtering & bypass filtering too. Today, synthetic oils/lubes far surpass Dino Oils in operating range add a Nano Tungsten disulfide/fullerene package and film strength hits 300k+- psi...

    Mobil oil sale

    Whats your thoughts on adding zink I add it to the synethic oils in my Cummins and Miata.....I've also taken to adding Tungsten disulfide nano particle powder to the Miata's oil too. I've been looking into coating the Cummins tappets and/or having them EMD drilled too for a later install of...

    How does TrboDyn compare to Amsoil?

    IMO Lube oil packaged with 300k +- psi film strength additives and operating temperature range way above the next 'brand' will eventually take over the market.......brand loyality debates and nay sayers will always
