Finally got around to installing my thermocouple today. It's nice to know whether or not I'm melting my engine.

Does anyone know what size the wastegate actuator hose is on the 1HD-T CT26? I'm hoping to install my boost controller, but I'd like to gather everything I'll need beforehand.

Thanks Ryan.

I think you are probably right (I can sort of get my caliper in there to measure and that's what it looked like)...I just hate having to abandon a little project midway through to run out and grab something I forgot!

It's actually 3/16" not 1/4".

Cheers

So I've been tracking my fuel economy for the past 800km or so and it isn't great to say the least. I'm getting about 18l/100km all hard city driving (I'm not easy on it). Is this even close to reasonable? I'm hesitant to believe the numbers posted on mud, but my economy seems exceptionally bad.

I've bought new glow plugs so I will check compression when I change them and I have an egt gauge so I know I'm not over fueling too badly, but I honestly expected better.

I should track mine to compare. I do know that my truck uses more fuel in the winter then in the summer. I think it might have to do with the winter diesel and that I am running my tires at 25psi. Last year when we went to river shiver I did 700km on a tank but that was driving very easy, 90kmh I guess is a sweet spot.

I started tracking because it seemed to be using a lot of fuel.

My commute is awful for economy and for my engine in general. 5 minutes of driving, with about 1km of highway speed road. The engine barely gets to operating temp if I let it high idle for 10mins before leaving. Normally I'd use the Webasto to warm it up, but the fuel pump for it decided to quit working after only one year of use, and a replacement is about $400.

I know that kind of driving is hard on a diesel, so I try to take it out at least once a week and really warm it up on the highway or similar.

That sucks about the pump! When I drive the kids to school on a cold day the truck doesn't warm up and when I put it back in the garage the exhaust stinks more, maybe more unburnt fuel? I don't know. I do know, I need to get my webasto installed!

your 18/100km is reasonable, but not good

We see that i out HJ61 consistently.

MUD fuel economy numbers are ALWAYS out of this world.

You need to be going downhill, have a tail wind and drive like my grandma to get some of the numbers I have seen.

in my experience winter diesel takes 10% off economy. add to that the warm up, idle up and I never turn the truck off also kills L/100km.

Hmmn...I guess I'll just keep tracking mileage and change my driving style to see if any improvements can be made. The mileage itself doesn't really matter to me, I just want to be sure it isn't a symptom of another issue.


In other news, I finally have a set of 60 Series manual hubs on the way. I'm not planning a PT conversion. It's more of a novelty item than anything else, but my thinking is that if I ever jack something up in the front diff I only need to pull the front driveshaft and unlock the hubs. I can also reduce wear and tear on the front end by unlocking so the front end spins freely instead of transferring power to the wheels.

Plan is to finally use my powdercoater for something useful and rebuild them over the winter.

Nice! I was thinking about getting one but my IP/power rod got the funds instead.

I'll be interested to see yours when you get.
