Yea I have no idea at what temp the limits are set. I basically just have the one temp sensor left on my egr.
Yeah, I now recall that I was the one who pointed out that the OP's pistons do not appear to be designed for use with piston cooling jets. I wonder if that is, indeed, why they hit the jet and broke it off.Photos on the first page do show a lack of cooling ports on the aftermarket pistons.
Posts 155 to 157 show the ports on the stock piston and offer a bit of discussion on the differences.
Post 185 shows the aftermarket pistons correctly oriented in the block.

It's kind of puzzling to me. My experience is only HD diesel, which universally have PCJs and also pretty much always have a 'cocktail shaker' chamber in the piston. The PCJ's fill the 'shaker' channel under the bowl rim at BDC, and then the oil slops around in there on the next two strokes to pull heat from the bowl while dripping back out of the fill hole. And PCJ equipped cooling piston engines also usually count on that flow to lubricate the piston pin as well.
OP's pistons really do not look like they were designed to use PCJs. I've not seen everything yet, but I've not seen an OEM engine where PCJs were directed to just wash across the bottom of a piston like that.
Maybe SDP didn't specify them in their custom order ?Scott with Screaming Diesel Performance Custom orders them with their supplied specifications.
I'm going through withdrawals from the lack of updates. Hoping you have just been busy and haven't encountered problems!If I wasn’t subject to going back to SDP for a built transmission or possible future engine parts I would’ve definitely complained more. But I don’t want to bite the hand that feeds me in case I need something custom built later on lol.
