Peterbilt options

I have been looking at a few Pete's with corvette dashes like mine and all of them have a voltmeter and a big pyro, mine has a small pyro and no voltmeter, some even have less gauges, like 12, if thats still not enough... so I was just wondering if there was anywhere I could find out what the available gauge options were.

Re: Peterbilt options

Depends on the year but the most gauges you could fit in the 2001-2004 dash was 21 I believe. That was less that what the factory offered.

Going strictly off memory I guess the available gauges were:

Air application -required
speedo- required
tach- required
air supply pressure- required
engine coolant temp -required
engine oil pressure- required
fuel gauge- required
voltmeter-standard

Options :

-2" or 3" pyro
-dash mounted air filter restriction (2 different ones were available)
-trailer reservior air pressure gauge
-trailer air application gauges
-up to two additional air appication gauges for wreckers and such
-oil temp gauge
-manifold pressure gauge
-PTO hourmeter
-dash mounted clock
-axle oil temp single (reads forward axle) or two axle oil temp gauges or three for tridems
-oil temp gauge auxillary tranny
-oil temp gauge main tranny
-additional 2, 3, 4, fuel gauges. One per fuel tank
-air suspension gauge or one gauge for each axle
-air suspension gauge for trailer
-fuel filter restriction gauge
-ammeter
-air suspension pressure gauges for each pusher and/or tag axle

Plus a few NPO (non-published options) that add a few more available gauges.

Also, auxillary trannies, 2 speed axles, road trip computers, etc often take up the space for 4 gauges each.

I'm sure I missed one of two.

Re: Peterbilt options

well thank you for the reply, that is quite the list....

more specificaly the old pete's, 80's like mine, an '87 with the corvette dash. mine is the only one with the small pyro, that I have seen anyway.

also are any of the older gauges still avaiable the only one I think I dont have is the voltmeter, which I would like.

Re: Peterbilt options

You can also get one more if you combine the two air reservoir gauges into one with two needles.

<font color="blue">Good luck w/ the project! The new trucks are quickly becoming idiot proof which is important as the # of good knowledgable drivers has failed to keep pace w/ America's need for freight. For 2007, pyros will no longer be an option at all since the computer will prevent the driver from creating more heat than the motor can take. I complained recently to a driver about not being able to get a pyro any more and he said "I never could figure out what that gauge does anyway." lol </font>

Re: Peterbilt options

Yes as a matter of fact, I have no use for a pyro either as I am dead set against hot rodding any revenue motor.

Re: Peterbilt options

I sure wouldnt personally want one without a pyro myself, it would be like not having a water temp guage to me. I think a pyro is a necessity, whether the manufacture'ers think so or not.

Re: Peterbilt options

Does the service truck in your picture have a pyro?

Re: Peterbilt options

If I had to guess I'd say not factory. However I bet he doesn't own it and if it broke he'd get paid to fix it, win\win in my book. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif[/img]

The last truck I owned that I felt actually needed a pyro was a KW with a 3406B. All the electronic engines since then never get above 1000deg even on the hardest pull and the new one barely gets over 600. (I know these are post turbo but the B was the only one I felt could be killed easily with your foot)

Re: Peterbilt options

mine does have a pyro, unfortunetly it doesnt work, so I will prolly get an aftermarket one, which will also be put in PRE turbo since the factory one in post.

17 factory gauges. 18 if you count the dual needle air pressure as 2. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smokin.gif[/img]

Thanks guys.

No more Cats in Paccar's Pete 335 or KW T300 for 2007.

The new motors are called the PX-6 &amp; the PX-8. ISB and ISC respectively.

Thats interesting,

And no unfortunately I have a outstanding duramax under the hood, I do industrial engine work and have no need for a "big" truck. If its anything to big we hire a crane to come to the rescue. As my crane is only rated 5K lbs. Which there are only a few of us with the smaller trucks(we travel ALOT all over the country mainly the neighboring states for me) the rest of the trucks in our fleet are bigger ones(for machine field service).

Anything bigger though is a FORD F-650/750's with C-7's

CAT INC. gives us guidelines on what vehicles we are and are not allowed to purchase and fortunately ford f-550 and under is off the list permanent. WAY to many problems for us downtime wise. Matter of fact all of our F-550/450's with 6leakers have been traded off for C-5500 duramax---there holding up GREAT--engine wise/tranny wise(we use autos as well).
