Inframe Rebuild and No Start Diagnostic book sale update

The Inframe Rebuild and No Start Diagnostic books have been selling well.

The Inframe book has sold 114 copies on Ebay and Amazon.
The No Start book has sold 67 copies from the same sites.

You can click on the tabs above this post to go to pages with book descriptions and links to the sales points.

Thanks to everyone who purchased the books.

I plan to re-edit both books to cover the later model engines such as the Maxxforce DT, but I don't have a time frame for doing so.

I am also toying with the idea of similar books for other International engines like the 7.3 and 6.0 used in Ford trucks and possibly Caterpillar engines like the 3126 and C7.

Check back here for updates.

Posting Questions on The Toolbox

Please be advised that due to my lack of available time I will no longer be answering posts or emails from this site.

You can still post your questions or comments here and anyone else can answer.

I am sorry for this, because I  enjoy answering questions and helping solve problems, but my schedule no longer allows me to do it.

Of course, I will continue to honor my obligation to help those who purchase one of my books and need help with the repair.

Fix your DT466E Yourself

 Do You Want to Fix Your DT466 Yourself? 


How to buy 25 years of truck repair experience for $30.00 


When your truck needs to be fixed your repair choices are basically 3:

  • Take the truck to the dealer. Pay dealer prices. Lose more money renting a replacement or doing without your truck.
  • Take it to an independent shop. Wonder if they will be able to fix the problem. Lose money while they try to figure it out.
  • Fix it yourself. Buy one of my books and using readily available tools, get back on the road fast. Save lots of money.

This is what you get with my do it yourself DT466E books:

  • Specific content. These books address specific repairs so you don't waste time sorting through stuff you don't need. With factory manuals, you pay for lots of content you don't need.
  • Complete information. All the information you need is there and is arranged in a logical way. This includes torque specs, special procedures, tool lists, and more.
  • You get experience. In fact, you get over 25 years of experience doing the jobs in the books. 
  • If you have a problem or something is unclear, I am there. Your purchase includes an email address where you can get my help. I have access to factory information as well as experience in repairing these engines.
  • Guarantee. If you don't think the book is what I say it is, I don't want your money. Your Ebay purchase includes a 14 day, money back guarantee. If you buy from Amazon there is no warranty, but if you're not satisfied I will send your money back.
  • The cost of each book is about $30.00, and I try to ship the same day or at latest the next business day. Shipping to the continental U.S. usually takes about 3 days.

Click on the page tab above this post for more information on each book. There are links to the sales points, where you can view samples of the content. 


On the way is a book on more repair operations:
Injector change
Injector cup (sleeve) replacement
Valve adjustment
Camshaft change
Engine oil pump service
Code reading on the dash display

I'll also be posting excerpts from both books periodically, so check back for more.
