We have an 1990 international 7.3 in Thomas school bus. While driving in Colorado we noticed two things. Slight black smoke at full throttle, and about 30 seconds of heavy black smoke. This 30 second long "pulse" of heavy black smoke was only observed once but concerns me as we lost a previous engine with the same injection pump when it began smoking black smoke very heavily for a day or two. Then the smoke stopped but the engine began burning ~ 1 gal. of motor oil every 50 miles or so. We replaced the engine and found one damaged cylinder. Our current theory is that an injector got stuck open and washed the cylinder down with diesel and that failed the piston ring / cylinder wall. So, I am concerned now that our new engine has been observed to blow a puff of black smoke while on the road (i.e. not right after starting). The new engine has all new injectors. Does anybody have any ideas?

'The engine was on other sites, but we received the most calls from DieselEngineTrader.com. We sold it to the first caller-from DieselEngineTrader.com. Also, there was a waiting list on the engine if the first sale fell through! Thanks for the great service!'

'Had a Mack 7427 in my shop for 2 years and couldn't sell it! Within a month of advertising on DieselEngineTrader.com I sold the engine to a guy in Oklahoma - was glad to get rid of it!'

'We've sold 7 engines in 4 months through DieselEngineTrader.com - one to Utah, three to South Dakota, one to New York, one to Kansas and one locally in Wisconsin! I also advertise in other publications but DieselEngineTrader.com gets the best results and at a great price too! I like the way that my engines are shown at the top of Google searches and DieselEngineTrader.com will definitely be playing a major part in my advertising from now on.'
