    Cooling Problems on my 2007 2500 LBZ

    It started early last year whenever ambient got over 80*F coolant temps start really going up while towing a 10K load.

    Something is slipping in 5th or and 6th

    When towing my Travel trailer last weekend I noticed that going up hills on I-85 that the trans would slip. It did not throw any codes. When it started to slip I would immediately back off the throttle and reengage and sometimes it would hold and sometimes it would break loose again. I am...

    FASS T C10 150GPH Titanium Series Lift Pump Installation in an 07 GMC LBZ

    I have ordered a FASS T C10 150G - 150GPH Titanium Series for 2006-10 GM 6.6L Duramax. I looked at the Air Dog II 165 and The FASS Titanium 150 Lift Pumps and decided on the FASS because the water separator and the fuel filter on the Air Dog II is more proprietary than the FASS. The FASS can...

    Topper for my Truck!!

    I have come to a point where I need more room when I travel but, I would prefer not to tow a trailer if I don't have to. I travel about eight weeks a year at one week intervals and currently I fill the bed (have a tonnau cover) and the back seat of the cab. I now have a requirement to carry...

    Thermostat Replacement

    I was at my friends place a couple of weekends ago and he had a Tech II so we put it on my truck to see if it had any issues that I wasn't aware of. One of the things that was noticed was the engine was very slow to warm up and was running 10-15*F under where it was suppose to. I had noticed...

    Alligator Performance Transmission Coolant hoses Kit Installation

    Let me first say there are real nice quality other kits on the market but I think this one is unique and so far I really like it. Out of the box the kit looks like this. As usual you have to start somewhere and I started by removing the grille. On the GMC there is one bolt and six...

    Now I know the LLY/LBZ motors are really good but not perfect. Is everyone on vacation? Or is no one having any problems with their motor? How many of you guys think the left exhaust manifold is a significant restriction and needs to be addressed. Are the internal of the LBZ motor good...

    Greasing a 2007 GM 2500 Classic

    I have greased my truck twice now and there are 11 grease fittings on the truck. 4 Ball joints, 4 tie rod ends, 2 on the idler arm upper and lower and one on the Pitman arm. 10 are fairly easy to get to but the Upper idler arm (UIA) fitting is a real rascal to get to. I plan on replacing...

    Is anyone out there running this exact set up? I am considering this exhaust because I want as much quiet in the cab that I can get. I am also considering covering the down pipe and the Quiet Tone section with extra exhaust insulation and the paint/sealant for a little extra quiet
