Great Diagrams! Thanks for the unselfish help. You have answered a lot of questions.
Shop says EBV diapham stuck and requires rebuilding kit and $511 P&L. I'm taking the truck to another shop for 2nd opinion.
Background: My daughter and I were involved in a very hard rear-end collision 17 mos ago. $16k in body and frame repairs. Truck ran flawlessly before impact accident and I just can't help but wonder what effect that must have on internal parts, sub-assys and components. Injector cup(s) cracked, high press oil pump leaks externally, Rear differintial seeps now, not before accident, now this. We were hit by KW semi at approx 35 mph with no skid marks prior to impact and slammed into another p/u in front of us and then ping-ponged through 4 elastic secondary impacts.
I have over 25 yrs in aviation as mech and pilot and know how machines operate, and I have to think that hard a shock to a system or component would likely cause damage. In fact my body still suffers from trauma as a result of the accident. You opinion is valued!
Thanks for the clear answers and diagrams.
