these trucks had either an impco LP system or if it is tier2 or above it will probably have the spectrum system with the EPR regulator.
you can make it flash the error codes if you can access the diagnostic connector.
the older systems had either a flat or square connector plug marked terminals A B C D. if you jump the A and D terminals (engine off), then turn on the key and watch the MIL light (in some trucks that have the direction display on the OHG with the neutral light the MIL light is there). Once you have the diag plug jumpered you turn on the key and it will flash 3 times, pause, and then flash the code numbers with a 1 second pause between the digits, then a long pause and will start over repeating it.
If it has the spectrum system on it you will need the spectrum diagnostic module with dongle, no other way to diagnose it.
The diagnostic connector will either be under the floor plate on the RH side, or beside the distributor.
part number for the diagnostic ECU tester is 91868-02300.
cat also recommends having the service technical manual, an inductive tach and a digital vom.

You've been swooped!
If this truck uses tier 2spectrum and you do not have the software to go into the truck to get the codes because this truck has a emissions problem you can jump the diagnostic connecter l believe it is a and d than count the blinks it should be a three digit code. It will first go through a count down from l believe six to one three times than will give you the code. are all three digits they will repeat three times than if any other codes will go to the next code. Hope this was of help.

Does it have a pedal sensor for throttle? The plastic piece on the end of the pot is worn and out of range. If you have model j vaporizer with a button on it. Press while hot if it does not stall then i would start with the vaporizer and lock off.

Fact of the week
In the 1840's Valentine Day cards were popular. But a new trend developed where cynical, sarcastic, often mean-spirited cards were produced to be sent to people you disliked. 'Vinegar valentines' were postcards decorated with a mocking caricature and insulting poem. The unflattering cards reportedly created a stir throughout all social levels.
