If you pull the compressor I'd either safety wire or Locktite the mounting bolts. They seem notorious for working loose with catastrophic results from oil loss and mechanical damage.

Hate to say it, but another job that's easier to do with the CAC and Radiator assembly removed.

It's on a plate on the side of the timing case. Passenger side of the engine. Wipe it off and stick your camera down to get the numbers. Can't get your head close to it to read it.

Unless you pull the radiator/CAC assembly!

I've posted some suggestions in the past based on doing mine. If they didn't replace your turbo on the engine rebuild, I'd spent $180 on a new cartridge and not bother trying to beat the existing one out of the exhaust housing. Keep the assembly as a spare. Just put the new cartridge in the new banks housing and reuse the blower housing. Easy! Also much easier to pull the entire exhaust manifold assembly. 12 easy to remove bolts vs 4 hard to get at frozen bolts to pull the turbo. Several companies make a better performing sectional (no thermal expansion cracking) exhaust manifold. I'd also install a braided SS flex coupling off the turbo. That would be mimicking the new Cummins installation to reduce cracking problems.

Thanks for the tips Kota, I have read your install posts several times. I did get a new turbo and exhaust manifold as part of the rebuild, and hit everything up with PB Blaster over the weekend in hopes of loosening things up.

Long overdue follow up.

Kota, you were exactly right about the air compressor being the source of the oil leak. The main compressor line was rubbing against an edge and I had a 1" long gash in the line. I am amazed I had any compressed air at all. Replaced the line and replaced the compressor gasket.

On the way home from our christmas holiday it was the first time the coach stranded us. We lost our #3 injector. I have a set of injectors picked out I need to install before our trip to newfoundland. According to the detailed mx logs they are original, and we just rolled over 200k.

Currently working an electrical upgrade to have power in any condition. Magnum 3012 inverter charger (installed), remote panel (installed), battery monitor kit (installed), automatic generator start, MPPT 30A solar charge controller (emplaced), 5x 100W Solar Panels, and of course the Trojan L16 6V batteries each with 470Ahrs in series for 12V @ 470Ahrs.

After the electric is complete, the next major project are the injectors. Love the gentle sound of the ratchet click.

Wanted to thank Martin for making a post about ABS plastic and MEK regarding a bumper repair in a previous thread. It sparked my curiosity, took 20min to research, and found a viable solution to the issue I inherited from the PO on DD. I did a search and found a product on Amazon for joining ABS pipes that comes in black. You can easily see a difference in color, but it is much closer, and very good to see the plastic in a single piece again. Very happy with the outcome.

Looks good Vycan, barely noticable, but I think credit the the ABS/MEK repairs should go to Brad, certainly he is the guy that worked it out!

And back tracking even farther I would give credit to Keyair. Steve's work on his 345 is where I first realized that you could repair the ABS parts & pieces
