I want to replace my straight steering column with a tilting column. If I replace it with on that has an intermittent wiper switch(mine is off/slow/fast), will I have any problems or mods that need to be done? Will the wiper moter I have now work with the new wiper switch?

IIRC, if you have a late model truck, it should be a simple switch, just un bolt the column and un plug the harness, and reverse to install the other column..IIRC....

I know on the full size trucks I work on (93's) there is a difference in the electronics in the wiper motor. One module is for standard and one for intermittent. It is a black cover on the wiper motor itself, IIRC it can be swapped out between the 2. I'm guessing you can change the column and the module on the wiper motor and be good to go, but I can't promise since it's been awhile since I did one.

EDIT: I remember now that a new wiper motor I installed on this truck came with a standard module and I simply switched the std. out for the intermittent module and all was well. That much is covered.

The Model 379 can be equipped from the widest range of engines available – up to 600 HP – and a variety of Peterbilt’s proprietary suspension systems, so it can be easily configured to meet the demands of virtually any job and the hauling requirements of most any application.



The International Eagle® 9900ix boldly styled extended hood housing up to 565 hp


Ha, I win.


And I know nothing about trucks, except my company uses Peterbilts exclusively after trying several other manufactures out.

Engine options for 9900ix:

Engine
Caterpillar C15/C16
435 HP/1550 lb-ft to 600 HP/2050 lb-ft
Cummins ISX/N14/Signature 600
400 HP/1450 lb-ft to 600 HP/2050 lb-ft

Most of the class 8 trucks can be outfitted with any of the engines from the big 3: cat, cummins or Detroit. It just depends on what suits your fancy, ford vs. chevy. Engines, transmissions and axles are mostly made by someone else and used per specs for the truck. International has their own line of engines they use in their medium duty line.

I'll call it a tie.
