Great cabover!! I've owned it since 2009 and I fix stuff before it breaks. This is a 3,000-4,000 mile/week truck for a solo. Can ONLY be driven 1,000 miles per year in California using the low-use exemption under the new CARB diesel truck rules. Recently repaired or replaced items: new airbags on rear axles, new oil pan gasket, 2yr.old new clutch, 1yr.old A/C condenser/fans/compressor/evaporator (blows cold), rebuilt driveline, front springs (5yrs.old), newer 165amp alternator (1yr.old), radiator and crankshaft balancer (4yrs.old), water pump (2yrs.old), all tires Yokohama RY-617 11Rx22.5 @ 90%, newer shocks (1yr.old), newer engine sensor wiring harness (2yrs.old), ECM replaced in 2010, air compressor (2009), new dash brake valve (1yr.old), brake shoes @ 50%, new dipstick and tube, turbocharger (3yrs.old), starter (3yrs.old), Turbo 3000 installed, 8 newer Group 31 hybrid starting/deep cycle batteries, 2000 watt inverter, portable room A/C (for no-idle cab A/C), wiper, jake brake and headlight switch replaced, wiper motor (3yrs.old), ABS brain replaced (3yrs.ago), Jake brakes replaced in 2011, Reliabilt Head installed 2010, Reliabilt cam and several lifters done in 2012, front wheel bearings and ABS sensors replaced (last year) and new bunk mattress (2014). This 11.1Liter Detroit Series 60 engine burns one gallon of oil every 15,000, averages over 7MPG and I have all of the oil sampling results. As you can see, I take REALLY good care of this truck; mechanically.

Answer to "fan clutch leaking air on 60 series"It could be just an air leak at the fitting. Dion Int'l in San Diego fixed it for $50. Get it fixed ASAP if the fan is constantly running because the MPG loss will eventually cost you more than repairing the leak.
Answer to "loss of guages volvo"Clean ALL electrical connections you can find (ie. bulkhead plugs, ground-to-frame, alternator leads, ECM plug). There is a code troubleshooting guide for DDEC engines ( http://www.dmbruss.com/images/Schematics... ). Maybe you can find one for your engine. This is how me and Valley Power in San Diego solved my similar problem. Wiring issues can get REAL expensive in the labor charges. I was considering a new harness until we got lucky and found the problem in the bulkhead communications link plug between the ECM and the cab. Good luck to you.
