    DS4 going to become obselete?

    He is the guy I posted about. That is his p400 with the 24v ds4831-6033. Hopefully if nothing else he could salvage the head and rotor as backup for his other ds4. But it has some run time then has been sitting for years. I have concerns over damage from not being flushed before storage...

    97.5 H1 Hummer 6.5TD need help

    His cpsis exact same as pickups use. Only db2 hmmwvs have the 2 wires. Only funky wiring thing with hummers and hmmwvs is the entire frame is bolt together so there is no frame or body grounds. @mk1spyder did you remove and clean all engine grounds? Remove and clean fuses, and ecm connection...

    P400 for sale on ebay

    Man, I walked some of that road. Turning v8 into v7s, leather straping seals, pouring lead and brass to refit pistons, heck even just how few people anymore have done babbitt bearings. The things we have as an advantage to the generations of past though- muggy rod, jb weld, and the right...

    97.5 H1 Hummer 6.5TD need help

    With no more head and rotor coming out of Stanandyne now, this is going to become a more frequent issue I am afraid.

    97.5 H1 Hummer 6.5TD need help

    Glad you got it. Let us know how much the bail bondsman needs after you “talk” to diesel care. There really needs to be a list of shops. Some in green and some in black...

    DS4 going to become obselete?

    I am not good at searching a thing online. Seems to me there should be some ip’s and ip parts at the different gubmint auctions. Problem is usually it buy 40 of something. But if someone posts the items a few of us could haveone person buy it and do group by between us. Now if only they had...

    I've decided to do a Cummin's conversion

    Holy technical driveline lubrication batman! That’ll be one slippery shaft.

    New crate P400

    On a somewhat related subject, i would like to start a go fund me page for my hummer- haha.

    Front Passenger Door won't open using interior or exterior handles.

    I would be playing with a slim jim. Best is if you have a lighted borescope. To look inside. There are 1080p hd 5.5 mm scopes now for $20.

    I've decided to do a Cummin's conversion

    Center bearings are annoying, but thank goodness it is like a built in driveline safety loop. Depending how many miles and how empty the wallet is, center bearing time is when I like to take entire drive line (s) to a driveline shop, and do a rebuild and balance. The drivline shops usually do...

    Long, slow build of my truck

    Do you have an inner cooler where the debris might be caught in? Wouldn’t be the first time I have seen that. In always like cac designs in semis that the tank unbolts from The core assembly for that reason. Also nice that you could tig back together cracks from vibrations much easier. Thats...

    Long, slow build of my truck

    Some nice movement there. Turbo fail sux. Did I miss, what was the cause?

    Vortec 454 Rebuild options

    I understand. That is the decision i have made many times myself. Often “best” is not best. Like my current optimizer build- best is not gonna happen, but will be far better than it was brand new. It’s like the dr.s say- first is do no harm. And no matter what I do it’s not the exact...

    Vortec 454 Rebuild options

    Having the rotating assembly —crank rods pistons, rings, with balancer and flywheel, bearings: this is usually $250-$300. There are few engines it doesn’t help and the heavier the components the more it helps. Many people choose machine cost and do a stock balancer over the cost of something...

    6.5 on Craigslist

    Yeah, not hearing it run and sitting that long.. i bought my van engine with under 70k on it about 5-6 years ago. But the van with the broken frame was there where I could see why the good engine came out. Broken waterpump could have been wierd accident while It was sitting collecting rain...

    Revitalizing my Hummer

    Yeah, several vids of hummer getting done up. None getting major engine, suspension, interior and body upgraded for under $25,000, let alone $10,000. Most hummer guys put almost $10,000 into just the interior. The upgraded turbo, injectors,tune, cac, complete exhaust kit is over $10,000. Will...

    Working on a "next-level" fuel system

    Did I already say this? If so, sorry. I understand the pump builders built your db2 with that 5/16 to -6 fitting in it. But they grew their reputation on building these for Fords which have a larger inlet fitting factory. At it’s core, a bigger opening allows faster and smoother refueling...
