Another Q: High-idle needed on 7.3?
Another noobie Q: on every Ford diesel ambulance I've ever worked in (6.9 to 7.3), there is an electric high-idle switch as part of the Upfitter package (there to boost amps to run our Circus Lights, as well). Are these 7.3's prone to cylinder wash-down (fuel) when idling for more than say, 10 minutes?
I remember the 2-cycle Detroits in the coaches and transit buses I drove as a yung'un all had high-idle switches for this reason. Just curious.
Up waaay 2 late!
