  1. No help here. I just noticed you screen name. Are you a RVer? My smart rides on the back of mine. Nigel
  2. The battery probably is toast but put a set of booster cables on it first and see if you get any lights. If you do and you don't without the cables either the battery is junk or the terminals are dirty. Nigel
  3. Chris The wastegate actuator will not move when just revving the engine. You will have to drive it to make enough boost to open it. But it may be stuck open so spray some penetrating lube on the pivot and use a pair of channel locks to rock the pivot back and forth until it springs back closed every time. If that doesn't fix your problem you probably have a boost leak in a hose or the intercooler. Do you have a scangauge to get your boost or map readings? Boost should peak around 16 psi or map near 210-220 kpa. Nigel
  4. I was fortunate enough to see Rick and Carey's combination with the old car in Tennessee a couple of weeks ago. It takes a special person to keep all that black clean and polished. The new car looks great. Nigel
  5. Yours is just fine There is a setting in your ScanGauge you choose either Boost or Map. On the Map setting you will see about 100 kpa at idle. Mine is setup the same as yours and when we use Glenn's gauge it shows similar numbers to Tolsen. Nigel
  6. I believe Blue Ox makes a baseplate for the 450. I don't recall seeing any towed behind motor homes but I'm sure it's been done. Nigel
  7. GetSmart It is probably best to click on smart142 's name and send him a private message. He might get himself in trouble promoting his business in the forum. He is usually a pretty busy guy and may not get back to you for a day or so. His phone numbers can also be found under the Service Options at the top of this page. Nigel
  8. There is a tab above called service options. I believe that is the most up to date list. Nigel
  9. The last time I tried you had to enter the complete vin. Something that changed with the software update.
  10. I like the form idea maybe with mandatory fields to get at least the basics.
  11. I understand what you are saying but I kind of like it. On other forums I get tired of people asking questions like is it still for sale several years after the ad was posted. My favourite is asking the seller to contact them, if you are interested in buying then use the contact info the seller posted in the ad. On the other hand I have often posted to a seller that maybe their ad should have a ten digit phone number instead of a nine digit one and stuff like that. No perfect system I guess. Nigel
  12. Not a Cummins but I've done my 12 litre Volvo. Nigel
