Excursion 7.3 removal in 3.5 minutes!

Ok, just the last part of the pull... This is the end of about 5.5hrs after getting into the garage.

Not yet. Still trying to decide if I really NEED an Excursion. I always thought I could just quit anytime I wanted......... I'm going to my first PMS anonymous meeting tomorow nite. 'Hi, my name is Jason and I have a PSD addiction.'

Wish me luck!!!

Just give in. It is ok, not really an addiction as much as a lifestyle. The significant others in our lives need to understand this before signing on for the long term. We only go into short term withdrawals before we go into it with a buck$zooka of our own.

Good luck trying to deny it.

That is adorable! Its like a truck, only smaller.

Speaking of shorter - its never more obvious the dually is 3-4 feet longer than the X when ya pull the X out of my garage and put the dually in... The flatbed is at least a foot wider as well!!

I've had this condition for over 10yrs now. The truth is I bet it would be easier to give up heroin... If I don't build another X, I am gonna build a 2 seat roadster from scratch and try to get 100mpg with something like a Kubota turbo diesel. It would be like giving up regular cigs for menthols!!

But, I can hold up a part and look at Daisy for a yes nod or a . I dunno any other dogs who know as much about 7.3's!!!!!!

Should take you no time at all to get everything back together with all that practice!

As soon as you find another or beat that one back in shape, I want to chat with you about a WVO setup. But get your ducks in order first.

Anytime brother. I got your msg and will get with ya ASAP. Don't buy any parts yet though - I have a much better plan for you!!! The dually is getting a veggie makeover after 180k greasy smile-miles as part of this project. My new system will be as SIMPLE & CLEAN as is mechanically possible and may be available as a kit from veggiegarage.com

Meanwhile, the dually is in the shop now and ready to get its powerplant back. I wish it was as easy to install this engine in front of a ZF6 as it is to put it in a 4R100 truck... I have never managed to get it mated to the ZF6 without jacking the front of the cab several inches. Maybe I'll bust out the real camera tomorow and photogragh the install for a write-up.

What I need is a full-time AV person for this stuff!! I could be as cool as powerstrokehelp guy.

Awesome, looking forward to seeing the project going forward. I will need to build a shed to store the WVO. And I look forward to getting it one completed to store all my lawn and garden supplies and equipment.
