IHADAV8 Playground / Any Truck-heavy equipment tech's here?
« on: October 26 2019, 08:00:07 AM »
I work in engineering / manage quality/ product support for a plant that produces off-road equipment.

We use JCB power-trains which are Tier 4 Final emissions compliant.

Going on year 3 of this current engine, we have a real issue with trouble codes coming up daily.

75% of the time they appear to mean nothing but the rest it turns out to be a fault which needs repair. Machines going into limp mode or shutting down.

I've argued that we need to investigate switching engine suppliers. These things are always "down" out in the field and our customers are extremely frustrated.

My question is, does anyone have similar stories with Cat, Cummins or anything else?

I don't think others are as problematic as JCB.

Looking for feedback from anyone who deals with this day to day.

Just wondering how it's doing.

Brad, not sure if you ever talk to Brandon.

With the Cutlass long gone and the deal for the "T" I had bought fell through, sure missing the old girl.

Good day eh,

This is a question for my brothers in Ontario.

I'm on Bell Satellite because I live outside of town with no access to cable.

The price I'm paying is just outrageous. It's bad because of the add ons with History, Velocity ectů

I'm concerned my internet will be taxed to the limit speed wise with my son gaming, daughter and wife constantly on their phones if I try an internet based tv receiver.

What is everyone using?

When I talk to Bell, murder comes to mind.


IHADAV8 Playground / Judge for yourself and tell me what would you do.

Some time ago, My Cutlass was over-fueling something awful. The previous owner had installed a Brand New 750 Holley.

A member here sent me a Q-jet to try and I sent him the Holley.

The Q-jet did'nt fix anything so I sent it back.He then informed me he had sold the Holley to a buddy. Now I was carb-less so I bought an Edelbrock and installed that. Smaller carb made it a little better.

Cost me $300. Did'nt see a dime from the Holley.

Because I'm stupid, I mailed him a set of personalized plates that would "fit" one of his cars. After numerous requests to the Ministry of Transportation to allow him to use them, they kept denying it. To be clear, he CANNOT put them on his car.

I have requested the plates back and he now ignores my messages.

They are only garage art to him at this point and have never been returned.

I have not revealed the member because I'm not a dick.

Opinions pls.

IHADAV8 Playground / Feel the love!

I knew him before his talents were deemed legendary.

Nice to get your engineering skills noticed.
