just watch your fuel temp. iirc its 220* and up it starts to pull back power but if the sensor is doing weird things and spiking, then dropping back to actual, i could see it doing what your seeing.I looked for some but didn’t see any. I’ll go back and look harder. The truck is lacking a fuel cooler too…
Stock wheels back on?Well this old trailer has seen a hard life and it only got harder the last month or so. Found a good deal on railroad ties, just had to disassemble the wall they created. She’s WAY overloaded here. Tractor is 4600lbs with all the attachments (not including tire ballast, no idea how much water they have) and 20 ties. There are two broke main deck boards, tail lights need a re-fresh, wiring likes to disconnect ans reconnect while drivin (warning on the dash keeps comin up), and tongue jack is about worn out. I think it’s about time to do a full re-fresh on her and upgrade it. She’s been rode hard and put away wet a hell of a lot since 05
Pricing is fricken nuts on trailers. Can’t find used and new ones are 7-10k for a “cheap” decent 10k gvwr one. So I’m going to up-rate this one. Put some 5200lbs axles under it, change springs, upgrade the crossmembers, change the hitch to a 2 5/16, possibly add more brace to the tongue channel and main long channel, fix the wiring, add some jacks to the back for loading and unloading and new wood. Should be all in for around 2500 bucks. I sold my old trailer for what this one cost me a few years ago so I’m money ahead with it.
You know, because I need another project in my life .
