new solenoid pack and new solenoid pack plug.now there's no corrosion! glad to see my trans harness wires were actually very clean once i cut back a few inches to connect new connector on.the pins down in the solenoid pack side were all nasty.too bad that did'nt just get changed with the reman but i guess since it was working it didn't.ah well it is now.
new 4r100 pan w/drain plug and an internal filter change and mercon v flush.

out with the ultra flo welded muffler #17224 and in with dynomax/walker BTM / RV #21470.wanted to tone it down some.it did so nicely.not so deep and raspy but holy crap iv got a lot of turbo whistle with it.i hope it doesn't drive me crazy.

Decided I didn't want to spend $70 on cup holders for my E250 so I built this. Still have to stain it (atleast that's my current plan) and then attach the bottom portion to it. I just used zipties to make sure it was going to fit correctly.

Had a leak through the outside cab light on the back of the cab... Siliconed that over the weekend (I'm scared to spray it with water again) Spent the afternoon yesterday removing the back seat, pulling back the rubber and removing all the trim to dry/clean out the damn thing... stinks... any ideas besides replacing the insulation under the rubber? Anyway, figured out why the 4x4 was sticking... Just a frozen linkage I think. Tonights project is removing the linkage and cleaning & lubing. Also have to bolt down the rear seats and screw trim back in. But first, I gotta put my girls to bed! Here are some pics of the intake I built...

That is one bigass intake. At least IDI owners have the sense to keep something that huge under the hood ... unlike Cummins owners with their 8" exhaust tips ...

Ya know, the first thing I thought when I opened the box was "Holy **** that's a big filter!!!", but the 6637 is the one that I kept reading about in these forums... I just clicked on the link in somebody's post and went from there. My first concern was that the size made it hard to put anywhere other than where it is. I was proud of my PVC work, but my first thought after installing it was "okay, so I got a Hot Air intake instead of a Cold Air intake..." LOL, I'll figure it out.

For the first time in my life I'm self conscious about something of mine being too big...

Got my high idle hooked up and working, I think, will find out in the morning. Backed off the high idle as far as possible, both w/the brkt and screwing the plunger all the way in. Backed off the low idle screw and 600 is as low as it will go. Sounds good and idles smooth so that's where it will stay.

Edit: It actually worked this morning. Little by little it is getting there.

Sweet. The IDI sounds awesome when the cold idle advance and high idle are engaged. Sounds a lot like a Powerstroke.

Finally got an oil press gauge hooked up today. Runs about 12 psi at idle warm, 31 psi at 2200 rpm, I think. My gauge is a 120 psi w/80* sweep, think I'll get another gauge w/less press and 270* sweep.

Changed fuel pump today . In the last month new return line kit fuel heater ( it was leak through connector on top) and new fan clutch. Next on the list is IP and injectors and relocate the fuel filter . That thing always seems to be in the way and gets fuel all over the place when draining the water .

I didn't do anything to it today besides check the oil (not a drop missing), but I did get some more information about its history from the previous owner.

IP, injectors, starter, alternator, all of that is stock and never been touched. It's never been timed, the CDR has never been cleaned out, O-rings never done; just oil changes, fuel filters, glowplugs, and a transmission rebuild.

If I didn't know the guy, I'd almost have to call shenanigans. It runs just fine; a little slow, but what do you want from an NA. 14MPG, doesn't use a drop of oil, and it's only problem is the positive battery cable is junk.

I've thought about getting a lot of that stuff done, but now I think I'll just leave the IP and such alone. It's clearly magic. If I touch anything, either the spell will be broken or demon spirits will be released or something.

I got a better oil pressure gauge today. I think it's got good press. for 140K, got 40 psi @ idle cold, 15 psi idle hot, and 40+ psi @ anything over 1500 rpm. It runs @ 45psi hi way.

Made the mistake of looking at these:
Sportsmobile Custom Camper Vans - Regular Body Standard Plans

Next thing I know I am sketching up plans and out in the van taking measurement.....

Probably won't ever happen, but a guy can dream. If only time was no object.
