Guages - valid ranges??
Hi, I hope this is the right place for this post. I looked in the tech files first. I have mostly stock truck - 99 F350 SD, 7.3. I have been having loss of power issues. I am getting some guages to help diagnose the problem. I have seen that many folks here run 3 guages - boost, tranny temp and pyrometer.
I bought a 35' gooseneck camper and am going to be pulling it. I have ordered a tranny and boost guage. Will hold off on the pyrometer due to it being so much more expensive.
I mentioned truck is mostly stock. It has the International Cam position sensor and I gave the waste actuator arm 3 turns to increase it's holding strength on the waste gate as I think it is opening and or sticking.
Anyway... with the afore mentioned 3 guages... can someone tell me what would be considered normal range and as well as the high end range (I guess I mean like the red line on a tack). Having the guages without knowing the ranges don't do me any good.
Why do the pryometer? What is it's usefulness to a stock truck pulling a camper? Do I really need it?
Thanks in advance.
