You are either too smart or behind the times, not sure which LOL!
I was talking to a peterbilt tech who strayed over to talk to me about my truck at the gas station. I talked to him for like a half hour, he works on cummins and cat motors. He knew the 6.0 had a HEUI system in it and was asking if I had any injector, egr, HG, or oil cooler issues yet. I said you must own a powerstroke, he laughed and said YEP!
He was telling me some real good info and was just a knowledgeable guy all around. In the midst of our conversation he mentioned that years ago he began polishing the spool valves in the cat motors as they had injector failure issues that were pretty common. He said he cant off hand remember any of the same trucks he did that to ever coming back with injector issues. He also gave me a link for good info about HEUI that may help some others in understanding these systems - it even has info about the powerstroke in there
You are definitely in tune with your trade!! I told him that one of the techs on the forum I am on started doing that and he said that you should start a service just doing that as you would have happy customers and he said tell him kudos for thinking outside the box
- SO I guess to blow a sunshine up your skirt I will say you are definitely good at what you do and maybe you are on to something that could really help this community out.
Good link!! Lots of info! Thanks!
