Finished covering all the bolts and nuts with covers.

I had to make up this Tow bar shin protector for the Engineer. He did not like by front bar as he felt it was not a bumper bar being so solid so I had to mount my frot tow ball amd make an shin protector for it. Looks better finished and painted.

Sadly the images I usualy post are not being accepted. :cry:

It is Registered and street legal now. Just have to sort out the LPG rebate issue and tune the LPG (propane) system and work out what is wrong with the cruise control.

Currently having a problem with oil in the water. I have had the oil cooler apart and tested a couple of times now and replaced all the gaskets. Next thing to look at will be the gaskets on the head. Not what I wanted to be doing now I have the F4 going. Problem may have come about due to the motor sitting for so long or perhaps some one has not done the right thing when working on the motor ( not me ). Also waiting on either a modem or computer program so the LPG ( Propane ) can be set up as it is not sniffing the LPG at present and will make a big difference when done.

I also went to enter the F4 in the Victorian Hot Rod Show but was declined due to the weight of the vehicle on the floor as the Royal Exhibition building is heritage listed.

Bummer!

I sure hope you get a chance to show it somewhere this summer. You worked so hard to get it finished.

Will start pulling the motor apart Monday as I hope it is just some dry gasckets due to the motor sitting for so long. I do have anothwer event in January that would be nice to attend, but I am not about to take any shortcuts to fix this problem.

That's perfectly understandable. Good luck with solving the problem. Let's hope it really is just something as simple as a faulty gasket.

Sadly it is not. Gaskets look ok and we have no idea how the oil is getting into the water could be a crack in the head that only appears when Hot :(

:( :thanks: Will be visiting Cummins tomorrow about another motor or building this one with a new block, they will also crack test the head.

Many of my issues now appear they can be refered back to one firm :roll: that has done work for me and that is on the LPG, Engine head and the Air Con system missing O rings. I had to get the Air Con gassed twice due to this mistake. :evil:

This time the Engine may get a lot more attention and plenty of dress up. :D

Ordered a NEW Cummins 6BT today and it will be ready for collection soon :D .

The old motor is history :( and not much use for anything a few problems have been found that should have been found when it was rebuilt. May just put it back together and sit it on the floor in the workshop.

OK, I have my brand new Dong Feng (East Wind) Cummins.
Image
Image
As you can see my Pro stock style sump is fitted as is my Stainless Steel air tube. Cummins changed the fuel injection for me to Auto Specifications instead of Stationery Engine Specifications. The new Engine is a brand new 2008 built motor and never been used. Still have to swap over my gearbox adaption and change a few other things as this one is slightly different with a waste gate etc. I hope to be back on the road by the end of January 2010.

Sorry, Forum will not allow me to post the picture.

Fitted up now. Had to modify part of the block for the starter and modify the waste gate so as not to hit the brake master cyinder. Many other small changes have yet to take place after a full days work to put the new motor in. Some of the heater hoses will be relocated due to changes with this Engine. Air Con may be a small problem due to the new injection system. Luckily some of the old brackets etc. from the old motor can be bolted on and swapped over.
Some of the wiring will also need to be updated so the new injection system will work.

Made up a new throttle cable today ( A drive to Ballarat and back to get it made ). This one should be much better than the last one as it was more of a hydraulic cable. Not much left to do now once the new throttle linkage is set up and the wiring done I just have to put it all back together.

Just have to get the Motor primed with fuel and it is running. Have yet to make a heat sheild for the mastercylinder to protect it from the turbo and a stone shield for the sump as well as connect the cruise control and it will be back on the road.

As expected the Solonoid was a problem and now waiting for it to be replaced. Also had an injector problem that did not help plus a problem in the injector pump. Just waiting on parts and should have it all fixed by next week. :D

Changed over the Engine no yesterday. All went well, although some delay whilst they (Vic Roads) checked my engineers report to make sure I had not put a bigger Engine in. The F4 ran well and I even got to use the cruise control for the first time. Now I am just waiting for the modem to tune the LPG (propane) system. I need to up the idle speed a little.

After about an hour and a half on the phone and with the company dialed into the modem hooked into the computer on the F4 I can now say it is tuned. Was interesting to hear the change in the motor when the LPG (propane) was turned on. Amasing to think this can all be done by remote. :shock: 8)

Just a couple of little jobs now to finish :D

Took the 48 to Cummins at Laverton today for them to see it, ran well over 200k's for the trip sat on 100 / 110 Kms most of the way, both Diesel and LPG gauges have not moved off full as yet.

Still working on my the fuel figures as I have done well over 1000 kilometers
(about 620 Miles) and used about 150 Litres of Diesel (33 Gallons) and to date have only used half a tank of LPG (Propane) I hope my conversion from KPH to MPH and Litres to Gallons is correct. Looks like I will get nearly 2000 kilomtres to a tank of LPG.

Also working on the stand for the old 6BT Cummins Engine so I can put it on display. Will post photos in the near future.

Just had a feature in Australian Street Rodding Magazine. :D Truckin Life could be next followed by Diesel Power in the USA.

Sadly no and the forum will not let me post up due to the picture size. :(

I have given up waiting to run out of LPG (Propane) so yesterday went and filled the Diesel tanks and the LPG tank. The LPG tank is rated at about 60 Litres and took 36.50 Litres of LPG. The Diesel tanks hold about 95 to 100 Litres roughly as I never fill them completely. From this I have calculated the truck uses about 12.55 Litres Diesel per 100k's and about 3.03 Litres of LPG per 100k's. A lot of that has been highway driving and some of it with a trailer.

I used an online calculator to work this out > http://opentoronto.com/calculators/l_10 ... conomy.php

1203 Kilometers traveled 187.20 Litres of Diesel used and 36.50 Litres of LPG used. Give or take a litre here or there. If my figures are correct I think that is pretty good for a vehicle with a tare weight of 2800kg.
