No, lift axle tire original to the trailer from 2011. Had a hard life. Had a valve stick a time or two and dump the ride bags without shutting the brakes off and fill lift bags. Was mostly round except for the flat spots.

And people ask why I have lift kits on every trailer axle, thatís why.

10-4. I was thinking if it were a recap it would have come completely apart.
Even with that cheap freight you haul I didnít expect you to run recaps.
Sure is nice to be able to lift it a roll on!

But according to the European mouth breather theyíre only making about 800hp and a stock D12 Volvo can do that with TDI turbo.
Longer rods make more peak cylinder pressure, turbocharged engines should never use long rods.

Just use Volvo block and never have problems again, Cats are just crap.

In the pictures C18 after one season. Not a single pull without some kind of mechanical failure, head gaskets mostly, finally block gave up. Now they forget Cat, next season propably Fiat V8.

But I was thinking the issue was the amount of manifold pressure these motors were making that caused the failures. As you mentioned the breakage seems to be at the bottom of the head bolts in the cam bore where the block is the thinnest. This failure doesn't seem to happen to any of the single turbo motors, just the three charger motors.
No triples in Quebec a couple of years ago, it was not even B model but C15 or 18, whatever.

And the king idiot has spoken. Longer rods donít side load the liner like short rods, the reason they make longer rods is because they deckplate the top of the block. The Cummins B blocks were breaking when boost was raised and timing was advanced to gain HP. LONGER rods and deck plates stopped this issue. However they allow aftermarket solid blocks in those classes now so longer rods arenít needed.

When we see a Volvo making 3k+ HP at 5k rpm with 140psi of boost then maybe someone will believe your stronger block bull****. Hell we would be impressed if you yourself actually built something that made more than a bone stock 3406 with a stage 1 tune. You brag about your vast knowledge and have never built anything yourself. Someone else flashes your ecm and someone else builds your injectors. I made twice your Hp with stock cat parts including injectors.

Iíll ask again since you didnít answer last time. Which Euro powered truck won ANY of the Canadian drag races? I told my buddy that went to that race with a competitor that you didnít come because you said they wouldnít allow a D16. They both laughed because NO ONE that raced that weekend would give two chits if you brought that POS. No one with any REAL experience with REAL hp is threatened by your euro crap. Weíve seen the best you have to offer and itís usually at the auction yards selling for scrap price.

Besides d-bags what is Finlandís primary export?

No engine failures other than a head gasket and a few turbos and almost all the trucks were Cat. So theyíre making more HP and having less failures other than driveline. Seems your information is a bit out dated.

You contradicted yourself in one single post, long rods aren't needed then you post a picture of an engine with one of the crappiest rod to stroke ratios available, maybe only rivaled by the ISX which also slings rods.

The longer rod with the shorter stroke of the C15 acert works, otherwise you would see electronic engines splitting in the same spot, but they wont because they dont have the cam bore to be a weakness.

**** tuning can be contributed to most C18 rod failures in a performance application.

You mean D16 Volvo? It only makes sense really, I mean from the US sled pulls to the Canadian truck drags the Volvo is just simply dominating. You can't sling a dead cat without hitting one going down the highway.

Saw this last week. One of Leiffiís family members had a bad day.

You would have thought with all that Volvo HP it would have thrown those paper rolls out of the back doors but....

I have to say that the Pete called Class Act from shreve, Ohio is probably the best one out there- Cat powered.I have yet to see a Volvo or any of that other " stuff".KT's or Cats , some V8 Macks in OSTPA &NTPA pulls.
