Photographer was due today to do the feature. It has been wet here earlier in the week so a clean up was late happening. Once I got into the cleaning I found some one had removed (stolen :evil: ) nut covers so the photo shoot has been delayed :cry: .So today (Sunday) I have to meet with the fellow that supplied me with these nut covers and replace all that have been removed. These will be glued on again but this time I may look for a stronger glue :wink: .

Edited Note: I used Loctite Superflex last time and will use it again. Looks like some pressure was put on the guard to remove the covers.

Another issue now to resolve. The LPG system appears to be stuck in limp home mode. Company that made it has gone and no support or diagnostic equipment can be found. Possibly time for a rebuild. :?

Started pulling the LPG off as I can not find any support for the ECU system. LPG tank will get fitted to my other truck later.

With the LPG system off I am now waiting to hear from Australian Custom Trucks Magazine as they wish to do a feature.

Well the feature has come out in the magazine today. Australian Custom Trucks Issue 6. Sadly the image I am trying to post is too big.

Feature also contains photos of my XP Falcon and the T Roadster with the inline six. In another part of the magazine my International Truck is photographed at the local truck show so in all I have 4 vehicles in the one magazine.

Broken something in the overdrive and it will not get out of low range. Looks like it will have to come out for closer inspection.
Just when we have the Street Rod Nationals happening just up the road my truck will be stopping in the Garage :cry: .

https://www.asrfnationals2017.com/ I will still attend as I have a trade site and after all 1400 entrants will make for a great event.

I was asked to take the T Roadster with the inline six as part of the nostalgia display but without the Truck I am not going to get it there.

Well I have not broken something in the overdrive but have an electrical fault. Yet to determine now what has failed. The sad thing is getting parts for a US Gear Overdrive is not easy given they are no longer made.

The overdrive unit is back in now and we know nothing has failed inside it. Have sourced a new control module and switch and waiting for them to arrive. Guessing now that something has failed in one of those.

Why this overdrive is no longer made surprise me as they are a well made unit. As for the electric side of the unit well that is a let down with them no longer being made.

Yes was a great OD unit but the economy has been tough on some of the smaller companies here in the US. The electrical parts should interchange with some others though. Glad to hear you are almost back togeather again! :nod: :thumbup:

Replacement Control Module and switch arrived yesterday so hopefully now once I swap in the new parts it will work again. Once that is done I will investigate what happened to the ones replaced.

It was the switch. Yet to pull the old one apart to see why but the failure was in the switch.

:hmmm: if it was the switch then maybe you could wire it up using a relay to take some of the load off the switch. Good luck :nod:

Sadly that is not possible as the switch is specialized in the way it works and once I have the old one out I intend to investigate the insides to see if we can repair it.

That is the switch in the top right of the photo so as you can see it is not the usual type of switch.

Old switch is out and the new one is in. The switch has a diode inside so will be interesting to see what can be done with it.
