Mine sits for most of winter (stupid salt!). Even in the summer it'll go weeks w/o running. I've been using DieselKleen for about a year now. I have better cold starts, noticeably quieter...

For what it's worth, since our trucks have similar age and mileage, I was getting 20 mpg running empty when I bought it around 145K. At about 150 (I don't drive it much) it starting falling off...

I'd have to agree with Bill. Does someone make 10-lug converters / spacers? It looks to me like a stock 350 with 10 lug wheels and tires.

Also, if it really had 450 stuff, that thing would...

2WD with 235 85 R16s. I have a 5" Diamond Eye now. It was a bear to get in. I'd say with 2WD, you really need to stop at the 4" (unless you want to spend more than 8 hours fighting 4 pieces of...

Every older diesel I've ever been around usually had a coolant smell when you shutdown after a hard run.

Most new diesels I've been around tend to have one too...especially the big trucks.

From the day I bought mine, it's smelled of coolant after a hard drive. I think I've added maybe a qt or so in 15K miles. I don't worry about it. I've never seen a drip or noticed it in the...

Without measuring mine, I'm about 90% sure that 2WD coils won't be long enough. My 2WD sits lower than the 4WDs in the front. I'd think you'd need at least 3 to 4 more inches of coil. I'd look...

That's what I usually do to. But I guess that looks like it worked pretty well.

Subscribed. Mine is on the block this winter for a 4WD swap (if I ever get the darn garage finished) and paint next winter. I'm curious to see yours in all black. }>

My wife also doesn't like...

A similar design, although not completely divorced, was implemented in F1 this year. Basically, the turbine shaft was wound with a coil of wire. The turbine housing was a big magnet. During...

Wow you guys have it easy. Our project was chosen and given to us. The entire class more or less competed for the best design. Guess it was different then... Of course, there were only about 20...

Well thanks for the info guys. Maybe I'll keep my eyes open for enough parts to convert everything over.

Early 99 Intake Spider Questions

So I bought off of the bay an intake spider that was labeled as E99. It was supposed to be off of a truck with a build date of 12/1998 (that should be E99, correct?). However, when it arrived, I...

If you want fuel economy, stay away from the CUCV. It's got 4.56 gears and a turbo 400 trans (no over drive). They go about 55 with the engine standing on the red-line. They also have a rather...

Is it like a steady tick,tick,tick? My truck's vacuum pump does that when it's a cold start at idle. As soon as it warms up, that noise seems to fade away (yes, I know I probably need to replace...
