    ISX valve failures

    For sure and I am not stuck on an engine or a model currently. @WILDEBILL308 Are you looking for different coach currently?

    I would get the Detroit Series 60 if I could find it. @Gunnyjeep A Chateau is a great choice for a coach. I am leaning more toward a Dynasty. https://www.monacocoach.com/luxury-rv-brochures?y=2006 Engine options Roadmaster S-Series: Semi-Monocoque Chassis Cummins® ISM 500 HP Engine with Allison® 4000 MH 6-Speed World Transmission and Electronic Shifter Torque: (@1,300 RPM) 1,450 lbs./ft.

    All: I am sorry for the confusion I apparently created with this topic. @jleamont Thank you for the detailed response. Also thank you for the hidden nugget of advice. Which is get the Firmware updated in your Diesel engines computer every now and then. That is the ESM? This is all I am looking for.. I agree for sure. I am looking to read books to help me make these choices. Example: Do I need a pro to change oil? OR Replace a fuel injector OR both. In short it is about informed decision making and just wanting to know something about diesel engines, just because I like to know.. In the old days we called them Book Worms. This is actually more scary to me... Isn't the Diesel Mechanic/Technician/Professional Trained and Licensed. I am really asking because I have no idea. If the diesel engine is so complicated and scary like everyone seem to say it is. Seems like this would require strict training, testing and licensure. Now if you just mean find a seasoned veteran mechanic vs a greenhorn I get it. Don't they all have the same License and pass the same test? Isn't there a National Database I can go look up a Good well train shop in? Just to be clear I don't mean anything in a bad light. Sometimes my over inquisitive, logical brain makes people angry. Think of me as the poor kid that asks "but why does this happen?" "Is the stove hot?" It is crazy at 50 yo I still like learning.

    Yes true. I very much like the Adept Ape channel...https://youtu.be/igDWcKX-a-4 It is mostly on CAT.
  8. I think if you need Cataract Surgery you should get it done for sure. I certainly hope it all goes well. I am sure you have some reason for going to Mexico. I will say a simple search of Reynosa Mexico reveals this. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/traveladvisories/traveladvisories/mexico-travel-advisory.html https://www.npr.org/2019/01/10/684145551/in-mexico-reynosa-has-become-an-unintended-home-for-a-growing-number-of-migrant https://www.dallasnews.com/news/mexico/2019/05/06/mexico-tourist-hubs-border-towns-grapple-with-thousands-of-murders/

    Well I can search Google https://www.google.com/search?ei=m-sYXvfTIMmOggfUwYmQBQ&q=books+on+diesel+engine+repair&oq=books+diesel+engine&gs_l=psy-ab.1.0.0i7i30l2j0i8i30l8.4256.5775..8472...0.2..0.66.362.6......0....1..gws-wiz.......0i71j0i13j0i8i7i30.z6mNfKaejhQ I was kind of hoping you all might have a recommendation of a good choice. One you all like, trust or read already. I don't find a username here as Joe L. Also I am not that Young I am Fifty..

    Herman, You won't discourage me. Yes, I agree experience is the best teacher.. I to have friends that cannot turn on a welder or hammer a nail. However, knowledge is power. There are people who do and there are people who do not. Mostly all of that is the unwillingness to try and or learn. On the contrary of your point I am a trained Emergency room Nurse. I have studied countless books and saved thousands of lives. It was a culmination of both Books and Experience. They wouldn't let me practice on Humans until I read the books practiced and took tests. 😀 As I stated "I am not wanting to be a Mechanic or go to school. Just something to help me understand more and even go over rebuilding." I will get an RV when I can and sure to enjoy it. The DW is not ready yet and I am still interested in reading.
  15. Welcome. Hope you are having fun and stay safe.
