Re: 3208 - to ring or not to ring.....
Ok...I have to ask....What is wet stacking?
I don't think it uses very much oil, ( the truck hardly gets any hours, and it probably leaks more than it burns) and once under load for a few miles, it seems to be "fairly" smoke free.
When started cold, it makes thick, thick white smoke, which i figured was unburned diesel. This lasts for about 5 mintues, then slowly gets to a level where you can at least find the truck. After running on the road, it is good, but does tend to get back to a light smoke if left to idle. I'm not sure about the thermostat...the sender is broken, and I've been hesitant to replace, as I think it will break and need to be drilled, and tapped. Seems to run cool if anything, based on the old fashion hand on the coolant in, and out lines.
