Are those electric fans? How are they working? I plan on using electric fans on a s1900 chassis/1965 Ford F700 cab.

I haven't wired them in yet I mounted them yesterday and going to wire them in tomorrow but I've been driving for 3 months with no fan at all and it only gets warm if I'm not moving. Maybe pulling an extreme hill at less than 30mph it would overheat but on highways 3 or 4 mile climbs it stays right at 150 maybe 160 so if you watch your gauge and you don't leave it idling in the heat you really don't even need a fan

Awesome info about the fans, it's one of those things that trial and error in my case, so this gives me a great head-start. I may try one just to start with to handle idling situations, they get expensive.

It's a cool engine to work with - you are putting it in a truck 20years newer than the motor, and I am putting it in one 20years older. If you want to look at p-pump stuff "the pulloff" website has a great classifieds/parts section with some good deals on pumps.

That being said, if you feel you are making almost 350hp, how much farther do you want to go anyway I suppose? If you have the rack travel maxed out, you are going to be in the 180cc range I have heard, which could get you to that HP (I have heard almost 2hp/cc is attainable) especially with that bigger turbo and intercooler.

The MW pump is not a bad pump, just runs out of room for increases. From a longevity perspective, I bet a p-pump is no better/worse. Maybe neverenufhp can comment.

That pretty much covers it. 10mm is as big as you can go with an MW. Swapping to a 12mm P3000 is about the most cost effective. It's almost a direct swap.
Right, the MW with maxed out rack travel isnt any less reliable than a P with mods.

The p3000 swap is one I have heard a lot of mixed information on. I assume you need to build an adapter plate and find a gear and hub? I think the IH dt466 p3000 turns the opposite direction as the MW does? Is it a simple fix to correct this?

Does it matter which direction it turns? My truck runs just fine in reverse except the intake becomes the exhaust and it lacks oil pressure

On a P3000, you dont need any different adapting. The existing adapter will need a little clearancing for the front of the new pump.
Correct, the NGD series 466(93-97) pump turns opposite rotation. You can run one opposite of its intended direction if you swap a couple injector lines. Or, find one that's regular rotation and has the bigger plungers. Typically, the 466NGD has a 10mm p3000, some have 11. A cummins 8.3 would have a 12mm pump, but you need to make sure it's a 3000. There's some on pulloff.com every once in a while, but most are a 13mm, That makes for a real touchy pedal, but crazy power potential. Great place to find adapters for a P7100 too.
