Victim is a 3126 engine in a freightliner with hydraulic abs brakes.
I've lost electrical function and can't figure it out yet -- see general thread here:
MY QUESTION HERE SPECIFICALLY IS:
What is the minimum wiring needed to start and drive this engine?
I will need to drive the bus to it's winter location very soon about 10 rural miles from where it is now -- I don't need lights, heaters, bells, or whistles.
I probably don't even need the electrical power brake pump that backs up the hydro-boost from the steering pump.
Can I 'jump' the starter solenoid on the starter motor the same way I would with a car?
I know the ECM on the engine will need a steady 12v source to run -- I assume this power normally comes from the (ignition key switch) switched side of the fuse panel.
I was thinking of making a new positive cable and run it directly (with 40amp fuse and switch) from the starter motor positive post to the fuse panel.
Mostly I wanna make sure this kind of thinking won't cause me to fry my ECM or other expensive bits...
