    I have a greater understanding of these engines now and I would tackle another without hesitation.

    HELP!

    Not quite true, you can take a test light, hook it to the hot side of a battery and touch the pointed end on the glow plug, lighted it's usually good, not light it's bad.

    Well like any good mechanic I can't leave anything alone, plus I am repairing oil leaks and doing some new gaskets. Too many old original parts that need replacing. I have arthritis in my left hand so not as much strength as when I was younger and it's not a "pump and go". I want to take a...

    I'M looking into a water/fuel separator. I did purchase a fuel pressure gauge from Holley, I'll have that mounted in the cab. I am going to relocate my stock fuel filter as well. Soon I will get some fuel conditioner, maybe the Stanadyne from Amazon and see if that helps as well. I'm going to...

    So true all the scammers out there. All I can do is rely on honest people to do the right thing. I hope my Pump from Quadstar holds up and does a good job. the old pump had a sticker on it from 2013 so the pump was changed at that point, it still had the Stanadyne data plate on it.

    Thanks Will, well I am trying to get the best advise I can about parts for this old girl and I try to research as much as possible. I am changing out the harmonic balancer and pulley just for safe measure, I am sure this engine is over 100000+ miles and while I am freshening it up I just thought...

    If you mean the time keeper, then no I won't be using those. I read a thread on another diesel site and the mechanic said to use chain and gears so if there is an issue the chain takes the brunt of the breakage and not the crank or cam. With unknown true mileage it might be a low cost insurance...

    Happy May everybody! Well I am on my way to repairing my truck, got the pump last week and have the truck torn down to do the pump as well as several other repairs. A lot of my parts are original and need to be replaced. I have a question...if I am torn down this far would it be a good idea to...

    My pump arrived today, glad to get it. I have some other parts ordered so I can do a good job since I am going in deep with this repair. I'm going to clean as much of the engine as possible, I did spend some time pressure washing as much of it as I could, even laying down to clean the underside...
