    Turbo rebuild, replace, upgrade

    Welcome to the slippery slope of upgrades, performance, and yes the money pit It's been well documented on here how almost anything is an upgrade from the stock turbo Just like your engine, what your plans are for use/ power will dictate which turbo to use. HX35/40 is common for towing...

    Decisions on engine options

    If you want to go the extra mile, put in a set of timing gears from Leroy. No telling if he'll ever do another run/ batch again and you'll never have to worry about changing chain/ gears or deal with IP timing changing from chain stretch I also have a brand new chain & gears from my P400 if...

    2000 Chevy k2500

    You can get a rebuild kit from Torque King 4x4 https://torqueking.com/category/rebuild-kits-for-1992-2007-chevy-gmc-nv4500-5-speed/ They also stock gears, mainshafts, anything you may need You'll probably find that the sum of rebuild parts will equal that of an already rebuilt unit What year...

    6.5 idle and high load/rpm flutter issues

    SS diesel is still non- desirable as well, some things don't change lol. I'm glad to hear that Pensacola is at least doing right by you in sending another hopefully working pump My rig is also old but I plan on keeping it going for a long time. As @dbrannon79 pointed out you have a much easier...

    Where did you get the IP? There's another new thread on here from another fellow who got a bunk reman IP from Pensacola Diesel. With the DS4 being discontinued getting a reliable unit is getting pretty hit or miss Nice you're checking all electrical pins and whatnot, keep us posted on what comes up

    6.5 idle and high load/rpm flutter issues

    I have no personal experience with them, but have only heard horror stories from/ about Pensacola Diesel. If they offer a warranty/ exchange send both IPs back and get your money. If you want to stay with the DS4, get one from a reputable vendor/ site sponsor on here like Leroy or Quadstar...

    Where did the IP come from? Do you have a good KNOWN working PMD? Both IP and PMD can be bad new out of the box When you did the timing chain and gears did you make sure the gears were all lined up with each other properly? There are marks on the gears that have to line up with each other Is...

    Decisions on engine options

    I'm pretty sure you'll need a truck oil pan since according to your sig the truck is 4x4. The ad mentions needing an oil pan and different oil pump too. Not sure if a different rear main seal would be needed as well If the engine was a centermount turbo then new heads would be needed, but it...

    Decisions on engine options

    Ted's doesn't sell military engines anymore, and the last several years of engines offered were all boat anchors in the experience of users on here A military take out is really hit or miss; I've seen them as low as 2k and has high as 4-5k. When that high you may as well go new in my opinion I...

    Decisions on engine options

    New is best, a take out optimizer block is better, a 90s block will be the worst as it won't have the upgraded casting metallurgy. If possible to inspect a used take out for cracks and whatnot absolutely do it before purchasing. The newer blocks can/ will still crack Any engine with a...

    borg warner 4401 T-case

    My dyslexia strikes again! Sorry that wasn't more helpful Have you given the folks over at Torque King 4x4 a call? I've only reached out to them about NV4500 specific questions, but they seemed pretty knowledgeable and may have some insight on your rebuild. Maybe also reach out to any known...

    Just skimmed through this video, he manages to pull both shafts, hope it helps

    Plumbing done, on to the next....

    @Big T those are all coolant return hoses from steam pockets in the heads. A custom Chris mod. @Twisted Steel Performance remind us of what you're using the 6.2 oil fill tube for? Think you mentioned something about using its plumbing for a provent or ?

    borg warner 4401 T-case

    Yikes, gotta split a tone ring as part of rebuild? That sucks. Where did you get your rebuild info? Not doubting what has to be done, just would like to know for future reference as my next project is a k3500 1 ton dump with the same t-case

    borg warner 4401 T-case

    I know nothing about the BW4401, but my NP241 was also grinding and jumping out of 2H into neutral. I have yet to tear the old one apart, but as far as I know both the 4401 and 241 have a chain drive inside, so best case scenario you have a spent chain and/ or worn gears and bearings. From what...

    Calling all 6.2/6.5 gurus

    @Jake907 the best tstat crossover housing that doesn't interfere with the mechanical pump bracket is the 92-95 housing, faces forwards. What year/ style is the thermostat housing currently on the truck? Looks like the rare half model year '96 style but can't really tell from the pictures and I...

    1994 K3500 extended cab dually

    Is the water temp gauge you're running electrical or mechanical? I just looked into mechanical temp gauges and I never knew the mechanical ones (from autometer at least) are filled with some gas in the line from sender to gauge. Doesn't seem like a good candidate for mounting in the #8 cylinder...

    Fuel contamination

    Been watching this thread, sorry for the luck Stoney. Your luck is just like mine! Question for @Will L. - I make "poor man's biodiesel" for my TDI that is literally just 4 parts waste veggie oil filtered down to 5 microns and 1 part high octane ethanol free gas. So 80% veggie and 20% gas. I've...

    6.5 over heating

    I think I recalled reading on here somewhere to NOT use the diesel version of water wetter in the 6.5 for some reason...can anyone speak to that? I've found that foaming engine cleaner & degreaser is great for cleaning any kind of radiator/ cooler with aluminum fins. Whatever is in that stuff...

    6.5 over heating

    Glad it showed improved results! As far as I know the only downside to keeping the fan locked 100% of the time is it will decrease fuel mileage as others have mentioned For the electric fan clutch you won't use a steel fan, you have to use a fan that matches the electro viscous fan clutch When...
