Mel,

Quite a bit of detail in the report and my contact that found this works at a med and hd truck shop, has all access to part numbers for Cummins.

A questionable fan may not be a fan of yours.

Tread carefully.

Gary

That was his best answer, they don't have a part but he is a Dodge Cummins owner and very familiar with challenges like this one.

Ordered the fan from Summit Racing. Had to grind a very small amount of the ID to bolt it on. Screwed if back in place and all is good.
Took the junkyard fan back back to the junkyard. After I got my $150 I told him I bought a new one for $40. He don't like the internet.

Now back to the TCI transmission controller. Started out with the TCI rpm input hook to the 'R' terminal on the alternator. It wouldn't shift into 1st. The TCI read 4000 rpm at an idle. Not good.

I replaced the ESS and get a 5V signal. Trouble is the TCI can't see the 5V pulse. Took it for a drive: goes into 1st gear, but don't shift to 2nd till it hit 3600 rpm, then would not shift into 3rd, 4th. NOT GOOD!!

Hooked the input back onto the alternator and took it for a drive again. Won't go to 1st.. Now it's acting like it's shifting in/out of lockup. Very very BAD.

I'm looking for a Allison 1000 HM now.

What's with the form not staying logged in??? Typed this up and when I click to post it wants me to log in again then lost it???? Third try

At least one small breezy victory. Take 'em as they come.

The SEMA show is in Las Vegas the first of November. I booked hotel room today. SO!!!! This old country boy is going to be over whelmed by all kinds of cool stuff!!!!
Be mostly shopping for stuff that I need to make this 1000 walk the talk!
LIST:
bell-housing
adapter plate
harness
ECM
T-211 torque convertor
starter
flex plate
shift pad
e-brake
electronic TPS
I read somewhere that the 1996 TPS will work w/1000.
I do need a E-brake before I get this bad boy overhauled...... Not sure if it bolts to the back of the tranny or what. Need to se it first.

Right now I have a wasp invasion in my little 10X20 office above my shop. When one fly between me and the screen I get up and swat 5-8 of them. Cold front is coming through right now.

Mel,

I'll leave it at WOW and good luck.

Wear your most comfortable walking shoes. Been there, couldn't and wished I could have.

Well SHOOT!!!!
I'm in Las Vegas for the SEMA show and I can't get in. I don't qualify to be a vendor. My only hope is to beg a badge off someone. That project will start tomorrow!

Just got home this morning. SEMA was unbelievable! Wish (or maybe glad I didn't) I'd drive the truck. Almost everything there was for sale after the last day. Did buy of all things a flag pole????
Did not/could not see it all. My legs/back couldn't. Then just run out of time.
One whole building was nothing but tire and wheels, which I skipped completely.
My iPhone bit the big choogy this week. I have 'notes' and pictures on it.... Gone;<(
The mean thing I was looking for was transmission controls. Of that I only found ONE. Four days of walking and all I found was one booth for that. I will be calling 'Cummins/Allison Conversion' as soon as I get a replacement phone.

Then for the crazy people you could stand in a very long line and take a ride.
Everyday on the way back to the car in the $30 parking garage. Had to put some money in the slots to get a pass for parking. So, I figured out this system: sit at slot machine, put a $50 in it, hit the 'spin' once, get a free beer, print your ticket and go to the cash cage. Got $120 parking fee for $0, plus I win $12.

That exhaust would keep the wife on her side. Would need to leave all the windows open.

Allison 1000

Been running around looking for a shop to rebuild this t-1000 I bought. Not many shop will tough the Allison. The only one that will (I don't like) wanted $4100 and I can get one for $3000 w/no core charge from 'Cummins-Allison Conversion'.

So I had to call my credit card company to raise my limit then I called 'Cummins-Allison' and pulled the trigger! All I can say is I'm WAY over budget! The only other cost will be: transmission fluid and the driveshaft... Again. Dang, I had the driveshaft redone when I installed the 4L80e, then again for the Cummins, and now for the Allison. Maybe I'll get a auto-adjust driveshaft.

Will be shipped next week and take about 2 weeks to arrive.

Got the tranny I bought on Craigslist. May put the 4L80e on the list too.
