I got a heads up for any one with a 6 liter powerstroke, theres a heater hose on the driver side that wraps right behind the valve cover check that the hose is not touching it.
Got home today and noticed a puddle under the truck and traced it to the heater hose, the valve cover bolt had rubbed a hole right through it.
yeah I know what you mean its pitiful you cant see the motor, have you tried changing the air filter? its awful to change took me 45 minutes! A 3/4" splice and a couple of hose clamps im good to go for now. Im afraid to find out how much that hose cost.
Then there was the old Corvair of mine, fanbladed the clutch while racing, so drop powertrain, sperate trans from engine, replace clutch, reassemble and reinstall, runnning in under 1 hour. I got pretty good at pullin and reinstalling trannys on front drive chryslers too, but popping the clutch at 4k might have something to so with that...lol
