  • Elec. Pressure Gov. / GMC

    Anyone have a GMC Topkick with a midship pump, and Electronic Pressure Governor (EPG) that works?
    I was told that currently, there are no EPGs that will work with the GMC diesel engine.

    okee dokee then....I'm gonna go ahead and assume that the info I was given was correct. It sounds like no-one here has one, and I'm being told it can't be done, so until someone shows me otherwise - I guess its true.

      Need some more information:

      1) What size Topkick? The 4500 & 5500 use a different size (6.6L) vs the 6500 & up which use the 7.8L Isuzu engine.

      2) If you are going into the bigger ones, Stick or Automatic?

      I assume since you mentioned the "GM diesel" that you're not considering the Cat engine available in the 6500 & up.

        Just wondering if you have talked to people like ferrara or class 1 about this issue. I would think that either of these two may be able to help you

            Here's what I got from my contact at American LaFrance:

            Steve:

            Checked with Sanford. They advised me that there is nothing for the GMC. FRC had one, but it did not work. The best thing they do now is a FRC Throttle XL with manual intake and discharge relief valves.

            Hope that helps.
