  • New 6.7 F350 owners - Whats wacky in the photo?

    I ran across something on top of my engine. Dealer had never seen it before. Came from the factory this way. So for fun spot what off in the photo - sort of like Wheres Waldo. Moderators this is just for fun, so you can delete if needed.

    Looks like a string a line to a housing?

      Looks like a safety shoe string to keep the rubber line from rubbing on the aluminium cast intake horn and eating a hole in it.

      Although that could be the new FORD (fix or replace daily) method of keeping the charged air lines from blowing apart.

      Cate&Rob Rob does yours have that shoe string holding parts together under the hood?

        The turbo is not on top of the motor?

          Keith,

          Its hard to tell but sometimes items are held roughly in place on the line until a final connection is made. Foam would typically be used for chafing where I doubt Ford would tie things up with strings as a permanent fix.

            Your all close and have passed your vision check for today- its actually two rubber bands and does absolutely nothing now. Maybe during assembly?. Ill take it off and see what happens. Service manager laughed when I sent him the picture.

            I have heard of parts shortages, but this is funny.. If there is a rubbing problem I have some foam sticky pads that should work.

            Thanks for taking part in this experimenter - I now return you to more useful and meaningful activities.

              I didn’t get the rubber band option . . . but, you made me go out and check . . . LOL!

              Here’s another one for you . . . does your truck squawk like a duck after you shut it off ? Must be one or more diaphragm valves relaxing??

                  Cate&Rob Rob, the newer diesels have several devices to prevent run away. I think there is a intake emergency valve that closes when the engine is shut off. You may be hearing the turbine spooling down while that valve closes. I think they started the duck call edition in about 2017 or so.

                    Sorry Rob
                    I did not get the Duck Language Option.... must be a Canadian thing.............................sorry could not resist....just in fun

                    So far I have not had any strange noises.....but remember I am hearing, dinentionally, and folicly impaired. And to add to that driving over the three major passes with rough roads, tight turn, hard braking, etc. I got no noises out of the suspension, trans, or truck body - Nada - Nothing.. My 04 creaked and groaned from day one. The only noise came out of SWMBO when I was having fun in the corners. She was on the outside on Red Mountain.... the 300+ Ft drop offs with no guard rail..


                    BTW She (SHMBO ) was the first to spot the rubber bands.....I must give her credit for that.

                    As for the Duck sounds try over on the Blue Oval Forms - lots of knowledge over there.

                    Pleas be safe and whatever you do.... don't Quack up..

                    Remember Confusions said duck that fly's upside down Quacks up

                        And I thought the answer to what's whacky here is "where is the engine?"...lotsa plumbing and pipes.
                        The elastic bands remind me of back in the '80's when people used to refer to cars like my Challenger a 'rubber crank'.

                          I can attest to the "duck quacking" that Cate&Rob has mentioned, I heard it on his truck (just so you all do not think Rob is crazy)

                            Yoda Keith, give yours some time. Funny noises always seem to appear after the new wears off.

                            Cate&Rob Rob, try with the hood open. If you can pinpoint the noise, it will help determine what it is.

                              Could be caused by many things. Could be the throttle closing to prevent rock back or the noise is being induced from rock back. Rock back is when the engine rotates slightly in the counter rotation direction just before coming to rest. A partial compression event creates this condition. A throttle is use to create delta P across the engine so EGR gasses can be pulled in but can also be used to prevent rock back. This method is commonly used in gas engines today so engine position can be more precisely determined for restart.

                              Too much info but could be one of many other examples, waste gate, counter rotating front pump, mounts, chafing on shutdown, etc. Can you post an audio?
