6.0 Not Working Great!!

OK, OK... lets here it....

Tick tock, has tocked... for those that followed the 6.0 working great thread!


No Start. Tach not moving either. I havent had the time yet to look into it any further. sounds to me like the engine is de-fueling - (as in something is telling it not to start). turn over fast. have not checked anything else yet.

Has been working fine until an hour ago. all parameters have been fine. shut it down - tried to start it 15 minutes later - no go.

I can not remember if the tach moves during the start cycle or not.. it might not now that i think about it..



video here to listen.

Any suggestions welcome. Thanks. going to be looking into it tomorrow morning.

Say it ain't so!

What is your oil PSI on startup? What do you have to monitor the truck? I guess if it were me I'd check to see if the pump is pushing fuel into the top filter. Can you hear the injectors buzz? Can you hear the fuel pump?

Miller isn't beer. Miller is what they give children to hydrate themselves after severe bouts with an illness. Despite your poor taste in alcoholic beverages I'm glad you figured it out and it was free, well besides what it cost your ego.

Everyone seems to look at me sideways when I tell them what happened....

Emergency shut down:
It is a spring loaded and actuated butterfly valve in the air intake, with a mechanical actuator on the intake pipe. The pull handle to engage it is right beside the drivers seat. I'll take a picture a post it. Shuts down the intake in case of a runaway - in particular for use out in oil and gas fields, or around an area with fumes.
It is the first time I engaged it. I didn't know I had. Took me a while to figure that out! It is manually reset by hand. It had the strangest effect. IMO, It created a vacuum in the intake and cyls, and the engine would really rev up fast.
I'm a little worried about how much fuel I put in the oil. Change it out in the morning.

No worries on the Miller piss. I'm onto Keith's Red. An east coasters beer. IPA.

I will take pictures tomorrow and post them in a thread.

I remember those well. Had to install them for awhile on every portable engine that would go into a plant and big trucks.
Never knew of anyone installing one on a 6.0 before. If it was a 05 had to be a external add on device. 05 and later had no flapper.valve in the intake.
