Anything Else For Sale or Wanted / 5.9 cummins
« Last post by cumminsguy on October 08, 2018, 08:43:53 AM »
For sale- 1996 cummins 5.9 and nv4500(2wd). It is still in the donor truck, can see/hear it run. It has 182xxx miles on it. It was my plan to use it for my '98 HD, however I don't think it will happen. I'm gonna ask $3500 for the combo, I will listen to reasonable offers. If there are any dodge guys out there, the donor truck is a club cab and the cab and doors are super clean and for sale.

Engine-Driveline-Wheels-Tires / Carrier bearing question 2000 C3500HD
« Last post by Dustman28 on October 06, 2018, 05:05:57 PM »
I have a 2000 6.5 utility body. One day on the highway I got a bunch of vibration and seen my carrier bearing had blown out. I put a new bearing in but I'm getting a vibration that was never there until the thing went out. I'm trying to make sure I have it installed properly before going after other things. If someone can shoot a pic looking at the front part of the shaft going into the carrier bearing that would help. Not the side with the boot. I slid the bearing back until it seemed snug. Not sure if it needs to go back another inch. Also there has been some debate as to if the silver piece on the drive shaft is part of a old bearing and needs removed or if it is part of the shaft. I think it's part of the shaft. Thanks for the help.

Thanks for the help ED-NY

I have my base timing ( tan wire disconnected ) at 4 degrees BTDC.
I will follow that video and get my base idle as you have suggested.

Q. With my fuel pressure is at 52 psi running at idle, then dropping to 32 psi at full throttle with no load, do you think I should not change my fuel pump to the vortec high pressure pump? I have bought it and a new sock, but was thinking of returning it, since my pressure numbers looked good to me.

Would the high pressure pump be better? could it maintain high pressure while full throttle no load?
its a $60 question, keep and change it, or return it? I can tell a difference after the rebuild/filter/F.P.R. being adjusted.

Also, Amazon has some great prices on 225/70/19.5 tires,  14 ply drive tires.
I am sure they are not as good as goodyear but for me, they should work fine.

Give it a try...if it makes no difference, remove the IAC, clean and compress the pintle and re-install it...then try the first video.

But first check the base timing and adjust the TPS voltage within closed throttle plate range.

You mentioned TPI  but I suspect you were referencing the throttle body.  Instead of trying to explain the process...watch this guys video:

Check base timing first....
