EP-4 installed on a Freightliner M2

by in blog March 2, 2021

Roger Crabb from Commercial Fleet Solutions sent us a few pictures of a prelube installation he did for one of his customers.

His customer loves the faster starts and knowing that his engine is protected from start-up damage.

The pump is mounted on the right frame rail right behind the steering sector.

He used the Varna SCD control mounted to the firewall to handle the heavy power switching and circuit protection. A push button on the dash near the ignition key runs the pump with only a single ground wire running through the firewall.

Even though Roger found cheaper and more costly prelude systems on the market. He gave two great reasons why he and his customer chose the Varna EP-4 and the SCD control for the job:

  1. Practical experience and technical expertise before the sale to make sure the system would work as planned.
  2. He wanted to ensure that if his name was going on it then the customer needed to get the best quality, value and reliability for the investment. Customers need to understand this is not a price point purchase when you are dealing with a 28k engine. It’s all about service and value which will not only eliminate dry starts but also minimizes things such as injector failure, oil screen damage , injection pressure regulator failure & injector control pressure switch damage & could possibly eliminate HPOP (high pressure oil pump failures). With those pumps alone costing 1k with no labor the Varna system is a great value.
