No more black smoke out of my truck.

Well it is a great day, blew my engine today. Sounds like 100 dollars worth of quarters in a blender now.

Fitter you can breathe easy now, no more smoke.

Crank broke in half.
Reviva has already shipped a new motor.
Should be back on the road by mid week with reman motor number three in only 7 months.

Looking for motor velcro so it does not take so long to change one.
But with all the practice I should have this one down to 7 hours, after all, the bolts are all well lubed by now.

I am starting to think someting did happen on the way back up the road from the meet and greet. Either it spun a bearing or the crank cracked to cause the oil pressure to go weird.

Oh well, thank god for warranties.

Fitter me in a super duty? Why would I want to take a step down from Extreme Duty? LMAO

Soon as I get the new one broke in I'll have to come looking for you, I like to race.
But we gotta go get a load on our trucks first.
I'll give you a break, you put 2 tons on yours, I'll take 4 tons on mine and we can race back to Clarksburg. That should give you a 3 ton advantage, sound fair?

Heck no, I want the 4 ton, I don't think I'll have to worry if I'm alittle slow. You'll blow up before we get to Clarksburg LMAO I had to say that. Good luck with #3. I hope you get a few hundred thousand out of her. If you need a hand give me a yell, be glad to help.

If the next one blows, I am going to notify the reman plant via an attorney. I am gonna give them 3 chances, but as we all know 3 strikes and you are out. I bet they never sell another engine to a FTE pre power stroke member.

The internet is a wonderful thing, digital cameras are even better.
