Sunny mid 90's today.
After the trip to the dentist, I got with the guy driving the KW today and got the AC going for him. I have a relay with the circuit closed with a tiny wire tie. I put it in, the compressor comes on, after the pressure gets up/engine fan comes on to lower the high side pressure, I switch to the stock relay which shuts the compressor off when the evap. coils get too cold then turns the compressor back on after the evap. coils thaw. With the modified relay in constant, the whole evap. box will freeze up.
The low side switch circuit is closed and the 2 wires going to it show 12vdc + and -.

Good morning DR, another hot one with showers in spots. Leftovers for supper last night along with the salad I made to fill it out. Boss is out on the road today so might get something done. Pretty busy for a small shop.

Mid 90's today. Hauled asphalt to 2 jobs and 1 hr. distance.
Everything went ok but by the end of the day the WOT@1500rpm boost pressure is down 4psi.
Have another air filter ready and the manifold to turbo gasket was good and tight.
Hope it's not the fuel filters again.

Good morning DR, made progress on the B200 A/C yesterday. A130 PC board and unclogging evaporator drains worked wonders. Spotty showers and cooler today, summers grip is loosening here in the south....I love four seasons, reminds me of life Clunk we had a run of fuel filters when I was trucking, turned out when the station got fuel it stirred up the crud in the ground…. we began to wait till the next morning to get fuel and OUR filter issues went away......

Good morning DieselRam...
72 and a little foggy, 90'ish later and slight chance for thundery rainy things.
Really neat light show by the creator last night as I was driving home with Dad's new-to-him tractor.
Strange weather, even for the south...150 miles south yesterday high was 89, humidity was moderate. It was still summer but very tolerable.
The heat advisory is from here north.

Sunny 90's today.
Checked the KW engine and found some loose clamps on both turbos this morning. I guess the lock in the locknuts is going away....I'll fix'em with some blue Loctite.
I tightened them all then put the cleaned up air filter in and the engine made 42psi boost in high gear going uphill @ 1500rpm
It's a 2007 C13/12.5L w/twin turbos. I think it's been turned up a little.

Good morning DR, cooling (rain) trend next few days....is kinda dry...still summer here but fall is not far away. Don't think the blue (any) color locktite is gonna fix it Clunk as heat is the enemy. Buy NEW hardware. AYCE bar in town for lunch today....they have great pintos and cornbread. Once a country boy, ALWAYS a country boy.
