Anyone use 3-cylinder high idle?

7774 51
My neighbor works for Cummins and I was going to have him setup 3-cylinder high idle for me.

I live in MI so it's cold in the winter. Just wondered if anyone else uses it or likes it.

Hardly ever idle, but when I do it's high ilde. 3cyl only when it's really cold, usually so cold that when it tries to kick off it will almost kill the engine, or revert back to high idle.

You do understand the temperature requirements? It's not something you just turn on.

Yes I understand it does it on its own. What weather temps do you usually see it kick on?

Wow, the switch sounds like a logical idea. I'm assuming there's a bit of a how to thread kicking around here right?

And even with the switch, do you you still need it activated?

Great, so instead of telling us how to do it we now have to buy it?

Umm those two guys who i believe put this kit together share tips and knowledge with us every day , thus saving us all allot of money and time . tenfold whatever the kit sells for . If in fact they are making a few bucks on a kit , ain't no ing from Me.

I understand getting paid for pre made kits, as most people don't have the time or skill to build a set up like this. However I do not understand removing the DIY thread, if it has indeed been removed

I know moparman had it on his website for quite awhile before he took it down. I think it was on here for awhile as well. As for them taking it down, that is their choice.

When you and your partner(s) are in the process of filing a patent its kind of tough to leave the designs out in the public. Hopefully you can understand.
