DMan1198 It won’t run too hot. I left my winter front on while towing once at around 22*c, and coolant temp never exceeded normal.

gun32gtr On another note my 4 9'' kings Osram driving lights showed up. Any run for 9" lights across the front of there fummins? Just like real experience with it so to make sure engine dont run hot at all. It runs max 1/3 on the gauge if workd hard for sometime.

gun32gtr yeh jus bloody lucky they decent bunch. without physically seeing the clutch they could have played real hard but to there credit they did the right thing

gun32gtr So to South bends credit they have fully warrented the clutch and the new disc and pressure plate is on it way over to me Australia. They also are sending a new clutch fork as they said they its something that needs changing in this conversion??

gun32gtr So after having to wait till i had another ute to drive i finally got the clutch out of the 250.. And well nothing noticably wrong with it. No heat heat or wear marks on either fly or pressure plate. no real glazing at all. SO i gather that the clutch may have clamping issues once load is applied to the clutch. I can literally drive around with light to moderate right foot and no dramas. but if you mash the go pedal in 3rd gear and up itll spin right up. So i guess it has to be a clamping issue with the clutch...

Destroked 450 Not sure if a stock organic Luk clutch will hold up to the Cummins torque.
Best to pull yours and see what's going on before ordering parts.
