June Chat/All Topic Thread

Well, since I'm up and haven't started an All Topic Thread, I may as well do my part!

Welcome to midway through the year already. It had been getting pretty hot and dry, but the last few days were welcome with rain/thunderstorms. And the weather today is suppose to be beautiful in the NW corner of the state.

jgoodman6891 is starting off with a positive reputation.
Got some rain around here. Rather nice really other than I should have mowed today instead of going to get a load of cedar. Rolled across the scales 2 miles from the house at 10,160 lbs. If I cleaned out my cab I know I could get under 10k. That load ~3200, was actually the lightest of my 3 biggest. The front of the overloads didnt even touch.

Other news, found an 83/84 F350 with a 6.9/t19 I gotta drag home now.

I washed the Princess last weekend when I heard there was a reasonable chance in this part of the state. I should have waxed it so that the rain would have been a sure thing. We didn't get the 2-3 inches of rain the weather guessers were teasing us with. Though the truck does look allot better than it did before hand.

You never know, good ole Al Gore might have missed the whole global warming thing. Don't drink too much Root Beer, I hear it will go to the hips.

I don't know how much y'all got...but we haven't gotten near what we thought was coming. The weather guessers made it sound like we were going to get use our wiper blades for a couple of days. Maybe next time.

At some point your going to have to think about moving up to a PowerStroke and get away from those non-turbocharged oil burners.

That is a great idea. Then he could give away that 6.9/t-19 to somebody who wanted to put it in.....say a 79 Bronco or something.

I don't know either. I can see it plan as day on my Vista machine running Firefox. I logged in on a different machine (unsure about the OS) running Firefox...but the photo wasn't there. It came from PSN, so I'll go get the link and post it. You'll have to be a member of PSN to see the photo if you use the link.

PowerStrokeNation : Ford Powerstroke Diesel Forum

I thought I was being cute by "working around the system"...but clearly I'm not as computer savy as I think I am. Guess I should stick to running locomotives and working on 6.0L, I understand both quite well.

I figured I couldn't view it since it was an attachment from PSN and I am not a member there.

My thought was the rings, but no one seemed to think that was feesible. And it was a miss, accompanied with blue smoke that burned your eyes. Did a compression test and determined there was a dead hole with only 75psi.

I figured it out real quick when I sent link to some motor-head buddies of mine that you had to a member of PSN to see the photo via the link. So I right clicked the photo, then "copy image location"...which I posted here by using the "insert image" tool in the advance message post feature. Like I said in my earlier post...clearly I'm not as crafty with it comes to forum posting like I think I am.

I showed that to a buddy of mine and after talking between the two of us...we think it may have been a piston ring; but neither one of is quite sure how it got out of the grooves. Especially a big chunk like that. But if they were all gone off that piston, I'm willing to beat if/when you pull the oil pan you'll find some parts down there. Those dents/dings look like they have a curve to them...about the right curvature for a ring. But again, how in the world did a chunk big enough to do that make it out of ring land. I say you should get a Fed grant to study it in depth...don't want anyone else to have the same problem.

Since it's a 7.3L PSD I beat you could hone it, replace the piston with new rings and put the head back on. It should fire right up and be good for at least another 100k miles of hard pulling.

Oh yeah no worries on rebuilding it the walls aren't scarred up much at all. Would have like to have found the true cause even if the ring land did break due to stress or heat. I will say I do not run the same tuner as I did then.

Hmm, most of the carnage I've seen in the PSD forums has been because of tuners. And folks wonder why I run a stock tuned truck. Yes, I'm a chicken when it comes to aftermarket tunes/parts on the truck.

Only if it has a diesel engine under the hood.

It's just a cracked piston with a hole in it; ain't that important, just trying to rattle a couple of y'all. If I get board in the next couple of days I'll go through the efforts to do all that Scott. But I wouldn't hold your breath if I were you.
