No here as well. Maybe you should ask everyone to list the mileage on their coach as well. That could have a bearing on the issue.
I have about 26000 miles.

And are we all talking about the Cummins ISB 340 ?

No..... 2500 miles.

A search reveals there's a service bulletin on this? Freightliner Service Solution 3737....

Can't find further information . Is this something that has been addressed since, and if so which serial number forward?

Silver, (OP) what is your make model engine mileage?

Questions as these need to be addressed with as much context as possible.

I thought so but they have so many different models now it's hard to keep up with.

Berkshire Fan Clutch

Yes - Cause was belt tightener bearings freezing up and throwing the serpentine belt, which broke the connections to the fan clutch. When they replace the fan clutch, the Freightliner repair facility indicated that the fan clutch bearing was close to failing.

I read where another member just replaced his and I have a friend with a different make but Freightliner chassis that had to do his last hear. I am told problems occur between 30,000 and 40,000 miles on any ISB engine. Just interested to see if this rings true. It is not an easy or cheep repair.

I have had mine inspected and recorded on the bill the last two years. Not sure it will help if I have a issue but it might.

No - 2012 340hp / 45,000 miles. Wow don't you all do any travelling?

Note - the 340 and 360 are the same engine; just a chip change.
