    Fuel dripping from hole in bell housing and other areas

    Back on line....Here is what I had to do.... 1) remove passenger side battery. -unhook driver side battery neg cable. 2) drain down coolant enough to remove top radiator hose (radiator drain area may need modification to access easily). 3) remove top fan shroud, fan / clutch...

    Fuel dripping from hole in bell housing and other areas

    It is definitely the IP. Got a replacement....will switch out tomorrow. Marked everything today. To get the hard lines off the IP, do you need a specialty tool, or will cutting a 19 mm box end work (with a bend or two in it)?

    Fuel dripping from hole in bell housing and other areas

    Started the truck today (made sure nothing got into the open holes). Findings.... The injector pump has an obvious leak underneath the back end (cylinder area where the octopus arranged injector lines are attached). Good thing that there is a drain hole located on the back of the block in the...

    Fuel dripping from hole in bell housing and other areas

    Thanks Paveltolz and EWC. With that information, I'm pretty sure I know where the leak is coming from. I will run the engine like Paveltolz described and verify. But, now, knowing that is a drain hole my money's is on the pump weeping.

    Fuel dripping from hole in bell housing and other areas

    I have a modified relay from Leroy. Just push a button and the lift pump activates. I also have moved the FFM, and it is not leaking. Actually, the FFM (and entire fuel system) is still full and attached to the injection pump. This is my first time messing with the injection pump, and related...

    Fuel dripping from hole in bell housing and other areas

    I've got fuel dripping from the bell housing hole and from areas around the interface between the block and bell housing when the truck is running. It took awhile to figure out what the fluid was because it was a small leak, and seemed weaker than diesel (watered down). I've exposed the...

    PCM tune to disable VATS

    O.K. From all the above information, I think that the tune was done correctly. I will now drive the thing, and see what happens... Husker6.5 I couldn't agree with you more. If I had checked out 6.5's before I got one, I would have stayed away from the one's governed by all these electrical...

    PCM tune to disable VATS

    Let me get this straight. If the VATS is disabled, and the passlock is disabled, then the security light will stay on all the time. If that is true, then it is possible that the tune I received to disable the security system occurred. I thought that if the light stayed on, then the security...

    PCM tune to disable VATS

    No. I thought the passlock was part of the VATS (why would they be separate...?). Only the VATS was supposedly disabled.

    PCM tune to disable VATS

    After eliminating all the usual suspects to a series of random no starts, I came to the conclusion that a failing VATS was the cause. No sense in replacing parts to this useless system...I heard, from this forum, that one can eliminate the VATS with a PCM tune. Since I, supposedly, already...

    Bizzare nonstart

    Thanks ak diesel driver. I'll contact the folks that tuned my PCM, and see what they can do. I'm nearly 100% convinced that this security system is the problem. I'll tell all what happens.

    Bizzare nonstart

    Can you explain the PCM delete? Is that a service like a PCM tune where the security system is wiped out? If so, what vender could do that? I'd be interested in that.

    Bizzare nonstart

    Better yet, is there any way to totally bypass the security system? The VATS or pass lock, what ever system is in this truck. This is worthless system, and I have no need or desire to have this system...locking the door is good enough. Just want the truck to run when I start it. To have the...

    Bizzare nonstart

    Is this pass lock module an item that can be bought? If so, what vender? If it has to be found in a salvage yard what vehicles would be compatible, or does it have to be from a '99 6.5? I saw your pictures as to the location of this module. To be clear, pretty much straight down from the...

    Bizzare nonstart

    AK diesel driver. I read your information. I neglected to mention this earlier because I thought it was not note worthy, but even though I'm not getting any codes (yet), I have had the security light, on the dash, illuminate several times before this no start problem started. It would come on...
