Hey guys, I'm new here. I've been googling information on this engine, every time I type something in, this forum pops up. Figured I'd better join up. Anyway, like I said above, I recently purchased this engine, it was one of those deals that was to good to turn down. The engine only has 250 hours and looks brand new. I plan on putting this engine in a self propelled hay baler. I'm good on the mechanical end of it, the install should be pretty simple, I've got plenty of room to work with. My biggest concern/hurdle is tapping into the ecm. I've got the ecm and engine wiring harness. I need to go from the ecm to the opperators platform for start,stop and throttle control. So far cummins hasn't been much help, at this point I plan on finding the appropriate plug to fit the ecm and just build it as I need it. My question is, what all functions need to be hooked up in order to make this thing run? I had hoped to not tap into the qauges and just use my existing mechanical gauges. Sorry if my questions seem dumb, ecm's and electrical certainly aren't one of my strong suits. I'm determined to install this engine and make it run though. Thanks for any advice or knowledge that'll be shared. Seems like a pretty cool forum with alot of knowledgeable people.
