I will put this on the reminder list of things to do before deploying!! So I am kind of new to the diesel thing. How hard is it to time this motor. Is it a lot of work or just an easy task with the right tools?

Thanks for the invite and should be alot of fun!

If I can make it, I'll bring a cam
Would you dyno, replace the cam and then dyno again? That would be awesome man! Do it!

No boats under my feet. I let the officers do the fighting. I am in the Air Force and fix airplanes for a living.

Probably not, would be neat seeing before and after numbers on same block but this engine is tired.

I've got a second block I'll slowly be rebuilding. This old block has seen some sh** but keeps on ticking. Looks like it is an early casting that the prior owner found at a junkyard, judging from the facts that: the block number lines up, there is a huge leaky weld pile where my freeze plug should be, and there are big numbers written w/ grease pen on the valve covers sans stickers. Oh and oil pan is crushed, I'm guessing he tried to use a jack on it..?

Spare motor needs rebuilt but is a 87 6.9 and I've got studs and victor head gaskets for it. When I get away from work I plan on rebuilding. Then a fat turbo, fuel, etc

Ok, the date is confirmed, and set in stone as 18AUG2012 @ Dynomite Diesel Performance in Monroe, WA. I didn't confirm a start time yet because we need to gauge a headcount, but if we get a decent amount of trucks I'm thinking start around 9-10am.

Also, if we do get enough people like I'm hoping, they will pull out the BBQ and cook for us

$50/truck is confirmed price as well.

Are you at JBLM also? If so we can roll up together. As for timing, its easy with the right tools.
