Apparently you have never used the amazing diagnostic program called DAVIE for the DAF/Paccar engines. It has got to be the worst diagnostic program out there. It canít even tell you the last occurrence of a fault code. If your engine throws a fault code in the first say 50hrs and it goes inactive, but flags again 5000hrs later you have no idea if it was the first or last occurrence years apart. This is just one of the many amazing features of your euro chit.

Any body have any ideas to what would cause a roaming misfire on a n14 in a t800? Truck went down with an alternator over charging and a couple boiled batts. Had my guys do a PM on it while it was in the shop.on Initial start up it threw a cyl 1 misfire then it ran fine after some throttle. Chaulked it up to air in the line do to fuel filter replacement. Fired it up again and the misfire moved to #4. Currently Checking power and ground to ecm. Could the over charging issue hurt anything else?

Those ECMís are very glitchy. Doesnít take much to smoke one especially the older Celectís, flashing one there is a 50% chance it will die. The Celect+ is slightly more forgiving but air in the system will make them miss.

You GD grain haulers and your empty weight worries. Chit in your own Cheerios to try and save 50# and at the end of the week it doesnít mean anything. Our trucks load with overhead bins with scales in them and only 1 in 25 loads are ever this exact. Itís almost always 300-500# light. So sick of that crap, my dad will leave 50gal of fuel out of the truck because in his head it lets him haul more. By the math he could have made less than $1 on one load more ONLY if the truck was loaded to exactly 120k. Lmao Click the image to open in full size.

The KW is a 660. Itís not ours, I just snapped the pic.

The empty weight on my standup varies. I still have my wet kit on, and my 41í is steel kingpin and subframe. With one tank empty Iím 29300-29400 area.
With the spread, Iím 3-400lbs heavier. Itís a 48í aluminum sub and kingpin.

I donít know what my bosses truck weighs.

I wonít play any closer weight games than that. I run one tank of fuel is as far as I go to worrying about it.

Pay a man based on weight, and he’ll worry about his empty weight.

Thanks.

I’m especially curious about empty weights right now because I’m almost done with my truck. Mine is a 2001 Freightliner Classic daycab, 248” wheelbase, C15 Cat, 13 speed, and a 48’ spread axle Cornhusker, with lopro 22.5 duals all around. It weighed 24,940 lbs the other day, low on fuel.

Yep sounds like a truckstop greeting card. On paper that sounds amazing, in reality itís mostly bull****. Most bulk trucks, especially hoppers, donít load while sitting on scales. So they sacrifice things like reserve fuel, equipment strength or tires to save weight while they bounce down the highway at 78,200# or less. Iím not picking on you, my family was the worst, have gotten better but will still worry about why one truck is heavier than the others while theyíre all hauling the same net load.

I totally understand. There’s definitely a point of going to stupid lengths to cut weight, but to not care is stupid also.
When I pulled a walking floor in Tx, I got my empty weight down to 28,000 lbs (sleeper truck, N14 Cummins, 18 speed, spread axle walking floor) +/- 500lbs, when most guys were 35,000-38,000 lbs. Average rate of $10 a ton, on 25 loads a week adds up. Especially when a lot of them wouldn’t run an overweight permit (allowed us to gross 84,000lbs), and many didn’t run a spread axle trailer (allowed us to gross 86,600lbs in New Mexico.
All in all, it wasn’t uncommon for me to bring home an additional $1,000-$1,500 a week over what they were.

No, its not stupid, people that don't care about their empty weight don't care if they run heavy or not. They are also the people that if they get caught they pay the fine and move on.
