I really dont know for sure on this rig you have. I know the big trucks I
30-35 psi is about average, and I've driven old Detroit 2 strokes that only
I looked at Banks web page and didnt see anything about oil pressure, which
the 600 degrees strikes me as wierd too, seems low for pulling a load up a
grade, I would
expect to see someting in the upper 800 to 1,200 degrees F, even as much as
Even if your sensor is a foot behind the turbo, 600 degress seem low..
> And why, Whitelightning, do you prefer Delo 400?
Almost a million miles driving commercial rigs, Cats, Cummins, Detroits,
and Macks as well
as Whites back when White built engines and even Continentals. I've always
had good luck
with Chevron oils and the Delo 400 has been great since its inception.
Funny, cause I cant stand
Chevron fuels, gas or diesel. Engines I have worked on running Delo just
seem to be cleaner inside,
and have less wear. Oil seems to hold up longer based on oil sample
analysis reports on fleet trucks.
it took me a while to trust a multi-grade oil for diesels, I've always been
a 30w CD rated oil user.
But the fuel savings, and lower wear found in bearings and cylinders made a
believer out of me.
Last out fit I worked for also used the Delo in Thermoking Reefers, there is
a set up that will test
anything for weakness. Running them on cycle sentry, they might start 20-30
times a day. Small 4 cyl
Isuzu diesel engine. Other times they run constant but much of it at an
idle, then kick in to governed max,
back to idle. All depends on what's in the box as to how its set to run.
Produce needs constant air flow,
meat, ice cream, doesn't.
In the end its probably just IMHO, but its worked for me.
