    Bad PMDs Anyone? I know, the horse is dead already!!!?

    It would be nice if there could be a kit so a person could just build their own, sort of like the DIY Autotune EFI control boxes. I soldered one of those together and it worked great. I think with all of the black goo gone that the PMD would cool much better and last a very long time, then, if a...

    6.5 “pops” & blows black smoke intermittently

    Good to know You got it all figured out. If it were not for the PMDs burning out and causing problems with these engines, they would be very dependable and run a very long time without any work to do to them.

    Temp gauge pegging within 10 miles possibly could be a bad thermostat or a plugged radiator.

    Nope not doing those gaskets.

    I had the injector lines off of Mine 6.5 and did not mess with resealing the valve covers, they were not leaking and thus far are still dry. I just hope and pray that they dont start seeping anytime soon. LOL Now it is something I think about from time to time, I do not like having unnecessary...

    Hard hot start causes

    Try Your multimeter at the batt terminal on the back of the alternator, set it on A/C voltage. If it read voltage then the diodes is bad in the alternator.

    Usuall if I get multiplelights, usually not all on the same circuit, doing weird things, I look for a bad ground wire. Brought that to mind when You mentioned the four way flasher lights on dim and the security lamp coming on too.

    Clutch Shudder when cold, how to inspect, are any I phone snake camera's worth it? 260K mile decision time

    Lube on clutch disk is the biggest contributor to cold clutch shudder. Dont know if the inspection cover can be removed, if so, have someone disengage clutch and spray brake parts cleaner onto clutch surfaces, turn engine a ways and repeat, generously flooding the mating surfaces rinsing off the...
