THE PROPER WAY a ccording to the post on the jd 4840, we have (sticker on the cab post) is to run it 800-1000 rpm for 5 min. I believe the reasoning behind this is to a get the fan spinnin a bit faster but mostly around idel oil pressure when hot may be 20psi, bump the rpm up just a bit and it jumps to 40-60. This helps the turbo get proper lubrication and more of it to cool it quicker.
1996 Gmc k2500 4x4 6.5 turbo diesel, with mods Blew the head gasket, put all new heads, valves, injecotrs gaskets etc on the truck only to get it together and find out it had no oil pressure, and sounded horrible (pry a spun bearing). SOLD
