engine synchronization gauge

Hello Everyone, I have a 1989 10.8M Trojan International. The VDO Engine Synchronization Gauge sticks, meaning it works some of the time. But at times it looks wrong and you have to "knock" on the gauge to make it work again. I have checked all the connections on the back of the gauge and they appea...

Re: Gas Vapor Detection...

In this case, the manufacturer has been out of business for over a decade. A similar manufacturer's test procedure is to use unlit butane gas from a lighter, but I don't know if that will work with Scentry's product. Just to close the loop here. I followed this test procedure and it worked perfectl...

Re: Gas Vapor Detection...

Unfortunately, I understand that Scentry was bought by Rule many years ago and the parts have not been available for at least a decade. I am going to test mine and if it works correctly, I am fine with it. If not, a Fireboy-Xintex unit will be on order. If only it would fit in the same hole... Plea...

Re: Gas Vapor Detection...

I doubt the sensors work. Lifespan is a question for the mfgr., but i see no reason to not replace them outright. Consider the cost of not replacing them, and to have them be needed...... Thanks. I will look at replacing the sensor. To be honest I expected everyone to say toss the whole thing and b...

When it goes off did you open the hatches and do a sniff test ? Its also likely the sensors have exceed their life exaptation .

Gas Vapor Detection...

Hello Everyone. Looking for advice on this Scentry Gas Vapor Detector. I I have a 1989 10.8M International. I believe this is original equipment. At times I can turn it "on" and everything seems normal. At other times it will "buzz" and provide a warning that Gas Vapors are High. I am doubting the a...

Throttle Control "covers"

Hello Everyone, I have a recently purchased 1989 10.8 International. As you can see from the picture below the throttle "covers" (not sure what you call them) are old, stained and falling off. I tried searching for new ones but can't seem to find anything. Was wondering if anyone has found a good so...
