I'm mistaken it was an old lcd display that was used as widow decoration. But there are flexible led displays that can be bought.
Sorry for the confusion

Originally I was thinking the TFT LCD display was used in TV that had the flexible screen. I was wrong. It is actually an OLED screen that is used. The OLED is made over 72" diagonal. It is used in cell phones, tablets, laptops and computer / TV displays.

Sorry for the high jack BTW

winter in ophio SUCKS!!!.. but alas after driving in the last rain storm where damned everything got wet under the hood.. my J1939 link which was makeshift. jacked up a bunch causingf me to have 4 gears and no lockup oin the trans till it would dry out.. so even though yesterday was 28 degrees, it was dry.. so time to wire this thing up right..

first off.. here is my makeshift stuff.. somehow its lasted 6,000 miles LOL...I had just literally poked a Cat-5 wire in to test and then ended up driving the bus all over like that...

CAN bus should be twisted pair.. Navistar used the defacto standard yellow/green. so I shall follow suit.. and a black reference ground.. which isnt needed, however I ran it down but didnt connect it up.. I cant tell exactly where it should be via the schematic.. maybe the same ground as my TCM? ill hook it up if I need it at some point..

lets twist up some wires!! I did it with a drill.. pull the wires tight and exactly the same length. then spin the drill..

DONT let the wires loose from the drill.. let them sit.. taking them loose too quick will result in most of the twists unravelling. I went ahead and put the tubing on. and put the ground alongside. with the wires still pulled taught..

put on a Metripak connector. (navistar uses both weather-pak and metripak connectors. on their stuff.. routed the wires back down through, plugged it in and done!!!

I also changed the oil and poured in a bottle of HotShot secret Oil treatment stiction eliminator.. I still need to buy some of the fuel stuff.. I'll do that on my upcoming roadtrip.. I want to make sure all of the diesel Kleen has been worked out first.

Chris, when I did my 1000 conversion on my T444E, I reused my old speed sensor from my At545 and made this bracket, drilled 16 evenly spaced holes on my park brake drum and now no codes are set and the speedometer is accurate.

Jason said you did that and its absolutely brilliant!!! the only reason I want to change the ECM is because of the cruise.,., there are PGNs sent from the ECM to the TCM in allison MD mode that will actively operate the transmission to maintain a cruise setpoint.. plus it also increases the rate of acceleration in cruise mode. to handle the lockuo transmissions lower RPM Rise..

I totally dig your speed sensor implementation.. you did nechanically what I did electronically.. goes to show there are many ways to get a job done!

I don't have all of your expertise, so I will just stick with simple.

I'm surprised- I didn't think you believed in vodoo?

Does it work- or is it like a "treat" for your motor?

Remember STP ???

Growing up in Seattle the only supplements we used came from Bardahl.
