RE: FORD 460 Overheating Mystery

UPDATE: The shop has had the rig for 6 weeks or so. I've been back 2x to test drive it after they said they had it fixed. Here's what they did. Replaced the radiator hoses, replaced the clutch fan, flushed the block and radiator, replaced the thermostat (for the 3rd time in 6 months). At this point, I drive the rig for 15 minutes down the highway at 65mph. With the overdrive off (to simulate engine rpms while towing) it runs at 220-230 degrees for 12-14 minutes...then in the next 2 minute period, the temp guage clicks ..jumping 10 degrees at a time...in 2 minutes, I'm at 255 degrees. When I turn the overdrive on again, it cools to 245 or so. Everything I can think of has been checked on the motor...could this be the transmission? The rig sat for a long time before we bought it...in cold temperatures. Could this have something to do with it? I'm reaching out to a transmission shop next. ugh. I did not see where the sending unit has been replaced or tested with another gauge and sending unit. I had a car with temp problems and it was corrosion at the sending unit causing a bad ground and bad reading.

RE: Internet

I use a GL 750s works great less expensive is the GL 300 or 150 FOR $25. Connect as a repeater and use the Ethernet port you can turn off WIFI.

RE: FORD 460 Overheating Mystery

Well good luck I had the same problem. Ran hot all the time really ran hot pulling my boat. Did all the things you have done with little to no help. After all that I added a small transmission cooler in front of radiator and that helped but didn't fix the problem, added one inch of space between the radiator and the AC condenser (they were almost touching) that helped a lot finally added (I think it was called) Water Wetter to the radiator and that dropped the temp about 10 degrees. Still ran around 210/215 on a hot day but I could live with that.

RE: Shark bites for plumbing

The key to Shark Bites is to use a cutting tool to make darn sure the cut is prefect with no angle then listen for two (2) clicks when you push them together. I have never had one leak but know of occasions when people say they always leak.

RE: Shark bites for plumbing

Yep many times even used a shark bite shut off valve on the water line when installing a new toilet.

RE: Continuous generator usage. How long?

Loaned my 3600W generator to friends who had a major power outage during an ice storm. Ran on their covered front porch 24/7 except to fuel and check oil for 14 days. I suspect as long as you keep good oil in it it would run just fine for months on end at 7KW it will not be loaded and running hard. They are loud and if any distance to keep noise down be sure and run large enough power line. It will not be cheap figure 1 to 2 gal per hour depending on load.

RE: What manufacturers will this recession bring down?

Who will fail is strictly based on the length of time it takes to get people back to work many are already hurting and this won't end in the next week or so. The stimulus will help short term but the government can't just print money without serious consequences in the long term. The big picture is what will happen world wide.

RE: Make a "Smart" RV ?

I agree look at the Arduino there a many many projects that have the programing code available if you don't know C++

RE: Firewall vs entry in Hosts file ????

HMMM the first one I worked on built by Burroughs had lots of vacuum tubes with a drum memory. Then there was the ADECS built by Kellogs for NASA only machine language and used I/O was a Flexowriter, Porter tape deck or paper tape. Was all transistor.

RE: Visible users, what travel router are you using?

I have the GL 150 cheapo that works great. If you want duel band look at the GL-AR 750 cost more but a "LOT" more router.

RE: 50" - 55" TV... Uses 55 watts or less.

I guess a TV pulling 65 amps is beyond HD. Thanks for the correction.

RE: 50" - 55" TV... Uses 55 watts or less.

I don't know the size of your battery bank but to operate the 65 watt TV above for 16 hours would require a 180 AH battery.
