Had fun today at work, guy changed a turbo on a Detroit 60, but didn't drain the oil from the failed turbo from the charge air cooler.
Fired it up, idled fine, backed it out of the shop to burn the oil off. Hit the throttle and the engine ran away. Smoke billowing out of it engine screaming at close to 10 grand or something, coolant dumping out of it, belt came flying off, then it died. Pretty cool to watch. 20 seconds or so of sheer screaming fun.
Looked for a few seconds for a board to cut of the intake air, after that I didn't want to go near the thing for fear of engine parts flying out of the thing. Pretty cool to watch it self destruct. Woulda made a really cool you tube video. Oh well will keep one of us busy for over a week putting another engine in.

This is pretty close to what we were seeing.

Poked around in the ecm of the truck, topped out at 4 grand not bad for a big diesel

what caused the stuck throttle??? Or was that a result for some reason of all the oil in the intercooler? Are you a diesel mechanic Art?

No stuck throttle. Oil left in the cooler caused the engine to run away. The first time he hit the throttle the turbo blew the oil out of the cooler into the intake and away she went. Been a mechanic for the last 38 years. These days I mainly do heavyduty diesel and natural gas engines in big rigs

That's crazy. I have some friends who own Diesel Technologies here in Fresno, It was pretty impressive to see their work and visit the shop. The scale of the engines is pretty insane when you're used to looking at passenger vehicle stuff. I think that's a job I'd enjoy.

The next big thing for truck engines is some of the stuff Westport makes. Darn engine takes 3 computers to run, but pretty cool technology.

Personally I wouldn't mind screwing with the big marine diesels in the large ships. Those things are cool

Slowly starting to get ready for my Moab trip, got one of my tires fixed, yeah, 2 more to go.
Was always doubtfull you could pop a bead with a hilift jack and it actually works fairly well.
Here is a nice progression of my addiction, the lil tire is the stock tire of my yellow Jeep
Still the brand new spare, the other 4 stayed on the Jeep 3 months and about 3000 miles since I took it from the showroom floor, been down hill from there



Some of my tire fixin stuff

Hi lift worked pretty well for me as well. Definitely not worth paying $8 or whatever it costs a tire to dismount.

Jealous on the Moab trip. Didn't get to go this year, Hopefully 2014. Are you going with the big JF group?

This maybe a dumb question but are you driving out there or trailering?

Trailering, for one it sits on sticky tires, secondly on 40's it would be a very long trip . The truck is a lot more comfortable. When I put the 37's on I do drive it to local trails, just for fun
