ok they have iron heads but is there anything else in there that is aluminum?
I was talking with professional truck driver (not a pro mechanic) and he said that their big diesel semis run at 800F, same as ours, and he damn near had a heart attack when I told him mine will hit 1500F for short periods when climbing and really accelerating. he argued with me for half hour trying to tell me that that would ruin my motor by melting aluminum, etc... I didnt believe him, I knew he was wrong anyways.
maybe im just being paranoid, or maybe im watching the pyro too much. it just seems like its always running 1000+ and when I touch the throttle, even on flat ground not even a hill, it will get up to damn near 1500F. how long can I go at 1500F for before it damages something? 10 seconds? 10 minutes? 10 hours?!
