Have it transported home and fix it there....rent a car and keep going with your trip....they will probably screw something up and you will only have to repair it again...sounds like you are already getting a run around...my guess is blown head gasket, but I hate guessing. Good luck. Regards, Bob

Bad luck, hope they get you back on the road soon.

I work in Niagara Falls. If you make it here defiantly do the maid of the mist and see Clifton hill.
There's a nice state park just over the border in New York State - 4 mile creek state park. It's a nice quiet place to stay not far from Niagara Falls.

Visit Niagara on the lake if you get the chance, especially if you like wine. It's one of the prettiest towns in Canada.

So I asked their night shift for more details, the called the tech, and walked me through it, and agree with their prognosis. One of the cylinders is popping out of the intake, and in time with the rough idle I was hearing. The tech working it has lots of experience, but based on the detail of questions I was asking he started smiling and we geeked out on engine theory. I recieved the detailed quote, and a quote to ship it. The quote is about 30% less.

Sorry to hear about your troubles! Know you've been planning this trip for a long time. Hope you are able to continue it in some way.

If you think this guy a good, I'd get it fixed and drive it home.

Bob,

Not too good at searching for transport. I found one for 6k, and one for 6.5k. Any help would be awesome.

Wow! Sorry about your luck mate. We were hoping you and your family would drop by on your way out. What ever it ends up being, it doesn't sound cheap.

We just got back from a very long weekend at Port Franks (just below The Pinery's Provincial Park). The 310 ran like a top with temps below 180 and all other gauges in the green, but my fingers do ache from being crossed all the bloody time.

I hope the kids are taking it in stride.

Cheers
Tony

Nick,

Sorry to hear about your troubles. A friend in the towing business said a Landall should run about $100 per hour.

If you had made it closer, I'd gladly loan you the 370 to continue the trip.

Charly

Thanks gents,

In this moment of incredible frustration your assistance soothes a bit. I plan to hunt down one of the airstream gods after this. It will be slow, painful, and one sided, but it will be worth it.

So oddly we have college friends in the area, and from what I am seeing I am inclined more and more to agree with bob regarding head gasket. The gents here are trying to prepare me for the worst I suppose. I did notice higher egt temps with the new injectors and am considering going back to stock and returning the new ones. Went from 700 to 800 deg aft of the turbo. I am also realizing I have all my tools with me and can take the head and everything apart on my own... the only concern I have is if the fan assembly is bolted to the head.

Tony,

We are still planning to head to Niagara Falls and see yall on the way out if you want the company.

Charly,
Still planning to stop by just pm your address when able so I can see how to fit it in.

So the trip right now will be from here to Acadia NP, then down to training in DC area.

We are actually enjoying the time in mineapolis. Great food, parks, lakes and hiking.

My money's on you, but remember their kin, and they're vindictive buggers.

Here's hoping it's just a head gasket and you maybe right, adding just that bit more fuel and heat to an old gasket pushed it too far. With a new high performance gasket your new injectors maybe okay. I wouldn't throw out the baby with the bath water just yet. Be thankful you have the room to work on those rigs.

As for the visit, anytime and for however long you wish.

Cheers
Tony

From your description, I'd be a bit surprised if it was just a head gasket. A loaded head for it isn't to bad price wise and pretty readily available.

Not a bad job.

Leaks in the intercooler won't lead rough running but can cause smoke and loss of power and overheating. Thermal stress on then is the culprit. They developed small cracks.

I'd pull the head. That will tell the story. You could be on the road pretty quick with a reman head from a local shop. In any case I'd track down the overheating issue.

If you were a little closer I'd run up and give a hand.

Maybe we can hook up somewhere in August....I have decided to take the second week of August off and Debbie and I are going to drive the 370 back from North Carolina. Fortunately for us being with Snap-On for 27 years if we have a problem on the road I can get in touch with the servicing dealer in that area and find the right place to go for repair work. Regards, Bob
