You'll probably have to put DEF in too.X2 Austen! Was watching a video on the Hino trucks, sounds very complicated to operate at times. Manual regens of cat required and many different dash screens to verify condition of truck? Did some research and think it will be a 235 instead of 268 as it needs standard brakes for non CDL. The 268 seems to be air brake only.
Just getting broken in! :2th: I remember you posting a picture or two of it before. Have you owned it since new?I agree with you Austen. I have been working on Cummins diesels since the early 80's and the older mechanical engines were always so much better to work on. My personal ride is an 1991 Dodge D350 with 240,000 on the clock. No ecm or DEF systems in sight!
Nothing wrong with waiting a year or two for the bugs to get sorted out.I just discovered last night they are coming out with a Duramax I-4 cylinder diesel for the Canyon and Colorado. Will be interesting to see how that works for them. I'd be tempted to get one myself but don't really want one the first year they come out. I've been looking at the Colorado or Canyon as a replacement for my Silverado since I've given up hope for the return of the Elcamino. :dunno: Still wish they had a small gas V8 option though.

I might have seen that too.Next video that rolled over was one with a fellow using and exhaust temperature monitor showing how it heated up when it went into 3-cylinder mode. He also showed how switching in an exhaust brake warmed it up too.
That's pretty interesting! I haven't heard of that before either.Made me think of the 78 Jeep Wagoneer we had with a gas 360 V8. Passenger side on the exhaust manifold it had a buttery fly valve with thermostatic back tension spring on it. When it was cold it would put a little back pressure on the exhaust which they said was to help it warm up faster. Think dealer said that Jeep came of an owner up in Michigan. (Least that is how they explained all the rust on it for no older then it was.) It also had a 120V block heater on it. I don't know if the original owner added those on or if it was available as a cold climate package at the time. I've never noticed that exhaust valve on any other vehicles. Another odd thing about it was there was no catalytic converter on it and supposedly it did not have one when it came from the factory. I think trucks maybe were still getting a pass from the EPA at that time even on the gas burners and the manufacture got it classified as a truck which it essentially was with a back seat and covered bed.
Austen lusting for new rig already?? To haul Bolens in bed?? LOL
Haha,Those Ford's look beefy! Can't wait for my new Dodge work truck!
Yeah, that would be sweet! :2th:Wish it was sold here like this!? Diesel!!!
That's a nice feature! Makes warm up times a lot quicker. You should make a short video if you can some time.Our Mitsubishi flat bed has warm-up/ idle control knob switch. It puts on Jake brake to warm it up, and I can set idle speed with knob!
Sounds like a Monday.Austen, used the warm up switch this morning! Was cold at work! Had to load 13 rolls of pipe that I had to TAKE OFF Friday as guy never called us back?!? Typical Monday!!
I can see you in new Diesel to go to work, old one to play!
Come take it for a spin.Austen, I sure like that rig! ��
It was something a PO added. Apparently you can play DVD's on it too but I've never tried.Is the TV screen above the climate controls OE on that or a radio that you or the PO added?
