Caterpillar C7 Long block engine, Don Allison automatic transmission
Engine fully rebuilt in fall of 2018, less than 1000 miles on new engine.
Rebuild included: professionally bored cylinders, new pistons, rings, gaskets, oil pump, and alternator.
Carrier refrigeration unit with separate diesel generator for power. Diesel generator and compressor in good working order. Issues with continuous operation - my refrigeration guy says there is a bug in either the controller or microprocessor. It will start up and cool down to 20degF or so and then go into defrost mode and not come out of it or sometimes shut off erratically. Before this started, it had no issues maintaining single digit Fahrenheit operation.
We have a farm-to-market beef operation and bought this truck to pick up and deliver frozen beef. Ran fine for 5 months before two cylinders broke rings and required a rebuild. During the long rebuild process, we decided that it was too large for our operation and we replaced it with a much smaller refrigerated van.
I think I picked the right classification for this truck. It does NOT require a CDL to drive but does require a US DOT number.
