Any CC owners w/a Detroit series 40(DT446)

Was wondering if you have had any issues with it and what kind of mpg you are seeing. We just purchased a 1998 Magna 36 with this engine. It's in florida now and we won't be able to pick it up until the end of August.

We own a CC with a Detroit series 40 engine. We have only owned it for 18 months and have put a little over 6000 miles on it thus far. We get about 9 mpg. Our CC is a 1996 38 ft Magna. The only work we have done on the engine has been a new water pump and new belts as well as normal oil and filter changes. We are having issues with the engine shutting down. We believe the issue most likely is the ECM.
I think from reading posts on this forum there are at least two other series 40 owners who read this forum

Fred,

I would recommend you check the fuse to the ECM board. We had the fuse holder go out, which shut the engine down last year. It was hidden in a wiring bundle going to the ECM. Even though we have a Cat engine, you may have the same fuse. The Cat shop pulled the ECM out, and could not find anything wrong with it before he spotted the fuse holder. Now all is well!

I am a bit confused. A Detroit Series 40 is a different animal than a DT466. Navistar markets a DT466 inline 6 and has been for about 30 years. used to be called an International DT466.

From what I have read they are the same animal. Detroit really never made a DT466. The DT stood for Diesel Turbo. The DT466 is a international in line 6 cyl. engine with Detroit electronics. All of the info that came in my Country Coach binder refers to it as a Detroit series 40.

Thanks for the tip on a fuse holder. I will take a look and see what I can find.

The Detroit series 40 engine was built by Navastar for Detroit under contract. Detroit just put there electronics package on the motor.

just got back. not sure what your asking for. dimensions, hp/ torque ratings, weight? all i really have are shop/parts manuals. sorry. you might go to a Detroit and int. dealer and ask for sales brochures. that might tell you what you want.
