How do you test a 3126 Cat if it won't start?

Yes, a good medium duty engine.  Mine was spec'ed by Rick Musselman at Bakersfield Truck Center.  Had the most torque available for the engines that would work in my rig when it was built.  Yes, a 500,000 mile engine, not a 1,000,000 mile engine; but very satisfactory for the job it was designed for.

The electric car chargers that you see everywhere aren't really chargers at all.  They are fancy electric switches.  The chargers are actually in the cars themselves and do a lot of fancy voltage conversions and battery monitoring.  The charge units you see at businesses are usually level 2 units which operate off of 240 v ac,  They have a small computer in them that talks to the car charger/computer when hooked up.  The car computer tells them is can accept up to xx amps of electricity.  They shake hands and the "charge unit" computer operates a solenoid that completes the circuit to the car and passes the 240 ac to the car.  When the car charge is complete, it tells the "charge unit" that it is finished and to turn off.  Level 3 charging, sometimes called hi speed charging is very high DC voltage.  Seems like it is around 5 or 6 hundred volts.

I use a non vented hood that pushes the air out in front-just stand out of the air stream. Then with the Fantastic Vent directly above, always have good circulation. Did not want a vent on the side of the bus. I like it so much I repeated the design on my truck. Good Luck, TomC

We still have an open-able window behind our stove no hood. We put a muffin fan behind the stove and open the window about 6 inches. When cooking. No problems. Grin

Definitely vented. Night and day difference when cooking, especially in warm weather.

3116 was a mechanical engine with similar injectors as a Detroit 2 stroker. 3126 has HEUI (Hydrualic Electronic Unit Injectors) that work off the engine oil pressure pumped up to around 1,500psi, with electric accuation-that allows the engine to start without oil pressure. Available from 190-330hp, 520lb/ft-1,000lb/ft torque. Up to 500,000mi before overhaul. Good medium duty engine. Good Luck, TomC
