Clean all the pulleys good with a scotchbrite pad. I find it's mainly the pulleys that the back of the belt rides on which causes squeaking.

Did you back the adjustment bolt off before starting? It sounds like you may have unhooked the band from the inside, or your band is broken.

Are you using a real inch pound wrench?

You back off the retaining nut, then tighten the band adjustment to 120 inch pounds or 10 foot pounds. You then back the band adjustment off 1.5 turns, and then tighten the retaining nut to 35-45...

Eh, the 6.4s have a few inherent design flaws, like the front covers that cavitate if you run them at high RPM / tow heavy/frequently.

The pistons are also suspect if you plan to mod your truck....

351 MAF trucks are rare. Pretty much only the '96 OBD-II trucks are MAF, and that's very involved swap.

I wouldn't use that shaft. I'd either look for a new one, or find a shop to weld the yoke up and bore it.

I'm thinking when you changed the filter, messing around under the truck may have cleared a blockage in the tank vent line. The vent line is the only thing that will affect fill speed.

So if you hold the vehicle at a steady speed with the brakes, and give it some gas to unlock the converter, the clicking stays the same?

If it goes away in 4th, I suspect something may be wrong...

You're not in overdrive if you're cruising 65 MPH at 2600 RPM.

There isn't enough of a difference in them to be worth it. You'll still be flow limited by them.

If you want to make a hot OBS, just get a H2E turbo with an intercooler.

1000 RPM difference is pretty significant considering the E4OD and ZF6 have for all intents and purposes, the exact same top-gear ratio.

In fact, there's no real way you can be turning almost 1000...

No way for the computer to compensate for injectors that much bigger. The 24 pound injectors are good for well over 300HP.

I doubt they caused the compression problem though. Sounds like the...
