For sale: Series 60 ECM for Detroit Series 60

OK, I'm not a truck driver and have no idea what this is or what its worth. I was owed money by someone and given this. I told him I'd sell it for what I can and then he owes me the difference. So its up for sale, figured I'd start here.

How's $500 shipped priority sound? Too high? Make me an offer. Too low? Well, you're welcome.

Is it verified to be good, otherwise you've got a DD paperweight. You also need to know what year etc...... Be careful so you don't get burned....

Its my cousin, he's not going to burn me on this. It works, he just got a new one for the rig he was driving and the company was going to throw it away.

Why would they put a new one on a truck if that one is good, unless they like throwing $2000 away for no reason.

Yeah pretty much. I worked for the same company for a couple years running equipment, it'd make you cry to see the kind of perfectly good stuff they trashed.

Could of purchased a ECM with a different HP rating or a Dual Rating for Cruise.

Thats the only reason i can see. Considering updating an ECM to a different calibration than the Serial number calls out is technically not allowed.Although its done all the time.

i've seen a couple trucks in Fairbanks with the 575/1850ftlb ratings they all had the same SN# in the ECM. Haha. Good stuff. Also EGR DDEC5 Trucks running High HP NonEGR Off highway DDEC5 Serials

If it does prove to be good then $500 is a hell of a deal for buyer. I would run it down to the nearest DD shop or truck dealer ship and have them test it to be on the safe side. You never know, one of them might even take it off your hands.

Talked to my cousin about it today. He said the ECM on his truck went out while he was in Iowa, and this was the only one they could locate to replace it. Its not the right model for his truck, but it worked to get him home. When he got back, the company got a new, correct one for the truck and planned on trashing this one.

That just sounds so ridicules. I cant think of a reason anyone would trash a perfectly good ECM weather they had an truck they could use it for or not. They could just keep for a spare in case that exact same problem happens again or sell it. There is no point in throwing it away. I certainly would not want to work with or for an outfit that has business practices like that.
