Fired #1466 up after work today and it seems to run fine BUT its making a lot of noise. The header is broken in more than a few places and a hack weld job on what I could see did seem to help. Although, it just might be wishful thinking on my part.
The spare engine is on a stand ready to install but have no faith in it. Who knows if it even runs!? I don't! Even if it does run will the computer and everything else work with the current setup? Don't know.
I can buy a new header for the engine in the class 1450 truck and hope for the best or spend hard earned money checking out the "spare" engine.
