    [​IMG] Hello, new to this site. Not new to diesel, had my '96 k3500 crew cab dually long box for 5 or 6 years. Had almost 600 posts on a different diesel site. Got sick of the elitist remarks and condescending attitude from that "place". I'm hoping to get some real help with my engine swap which I'm currently almost halfway done.

    I'll be in the 6.5 diesel section most of the time.
    Thanks

    I will be once I'm ready to drop the #506 in. Need to do the rear seal once the installer tool shows up. Then I'll drag the truck in, do the mounts and wiring and a good wash.
    I'll be taking time lapse video of the install. Here's a link to the video I did of the old #141 removal. Doesn't actually show the removal, got to excited and forgot to turn the camera on :banghead:

    Do you guys know how much time I waste looking for tools vs. actually fixing? I actually thought someone was taking my 10mm, 13mm & 15mm wrenches and sockets.

    Buy a small tool cart and work off it. Keep only your most basic stuff in it. It has proven to increase efficiency at 10% on average.

    I never know where it is. Was thinking I'd paint them so they're easier to find
