MY Ford F-250 Fuller FSO6406A Cummins 5.9
My Fuller FSO6406A-Cummins 5.9 purrs, rattles and that gear shift lever shakes. I do have a concern with the hydraulic clutch slave. We have had a lot of trouble bleeding it. This is a Ford Factory setup out of an 2000-2003 F-750. It has a plastic slave with no bleeder screw. Any help working this out would be gratefully received.
This project has reached this point despite the efforts of James HeTTfield from Jedburh, Saskatchewan to rape and pillage it. I keep finding things such as: a completely faceless clutch disc for which I paid $600.... a rear end that he originally changed to a 3.55, but when my mechanic looked at the truck was a 3.73 ($300.) or the core engine I found in place of what I had paid for. A consummate thief, who until recently was selling his wares and services on Kijiji around Regina and as far as bases? in Edmonton, Alberta.
Besides making stupid deals like giving a guy the scrap off a 93 Dodge 250 in return for pulling the engine. I show up 2 days later at the farm and he had the truck already to be scrapped and the engine lying under a tarp which was promptly buried under 12" of snow for 4 months. He took all my intercooler stuff because "it was all coroded" and partly aluminum. He destroyed all my breather hoses to the turbo and countless other parts. It would have been cheaper to pay a mechanic to pull the 5,9 and get all the needed parts and then get the money for scrapping the truck. My way cost me over $1,000. more. Turbo was damaged under snow, had to build a completely unique piping system to get around not having the intercooler et al. HeTTfield had previously helped himself to my Powerstroke intercooler and all the pipes... so I had no intercooler from either truck.
A really expensive move was dealing with London Truck Parts in London, Kentucky. Bobby Sr and Bobby Jr "we sorta sound like country hicks don't we?" sold me a Fuller FSO6406A (out of a Kenworth, "don't deal much in small trucks") for $1200. + $300. core plus it cost almost $500. to get it into Canada. We finally got into the project and we pulled the shrink wrap off, my mechanic took one look at the play on the shaft and pronounced it a core. I phoned Bobby? and we negotiated a refund of $300. which he never bothered to come through on. The Core cost me $3,000. to rebuild, which was 2x what the engine had originally cost.
I have probably stepped into more rattlesnakes dens than anybody in this forum.... James HeTTfield said that "I would never put this truck on the road", but I have, through perseverance and bouts of stupidity brought this project to almost an end. Need to figure out this plastic slave no bleed screw clutch thing to be finished. The reason that I use 2 TT's in HeTTfields name is because the search engines keep trying to convince you that the spelling is HeTfield. They want to show you the search on James Hetfield, who is worth $175 million, messes with wheels and is the leader of Mettallica and not about James HeTTfield from Jedburgh Saskatchewan. who can hide on the internet because of it.
