09 f350 cummins

I finally got my 09 home and running. The truck has 91,000 miles on it and had a new rebuild on the trans right before the motor broke. I've driven it maybe three or four miles and the transmission seems to shift great without tuning it. The tow haul works also. Is there a reason to have to have a program written to change it? I have the programmer just haven't hooked it up to get a down load and send in.

There is a guy on facebook fummins pages that everybody says gets them dialed in perfect, randy gilham is his name I beleive. If your happy with it then maybe leave it? I know when I did my swap nobody could get them dialed in for dd/tow/wot. You had to pick what you wanted it dialed in for and that's what you got.

I've drove it a few miles but putting a bed on it to get it licensed and then figure what I want to do with the trans. Another problem I've run into is bleeding the power steering. I've looked it up and tried the lock to lock and pumping the brakes at the same time but still squelling and doesn't have any power when you first fire it. Is there a secret to this?

Assuming your lines are hooked up correct? I used the Cummins pump, ran through the ford cooler and never had an issue getting it bled. Maybe I got lucky

A mechanic friend of mine put this together. Can the lines hook up wrong and cause a problem?

I did the same thing on mine with the same result.

Trying to recall from memory but I believe the fittings are all the same and could be hooked up backwards? I'm not sure what the result of that would be?

I'm assuming your squealing is the pump bypass opening. Leads me to beleive its dead heading somewhere but I'm far from an expert, and it was possible to hook mine up backwards.

I had a similar issue and used the electric vacuum pump to assist in purging the air out of the system. The gasket was just an extra seal from a brake master cylinder cap I had kicking around, so nothing special to get it to seal.

Another avenue for trans tuning is fumminstuning.com. They had my trans shifting great from day one.
