Sorry, I can't remember enough to state it here atm Sous. I do remember when they are bad they read insanely high ohms tho

edit: i went back and looked at my notes, when i was under the VC's to torque, when i OHMed the glow plugs to right next to them on the heads all but 2 were under .9 ohms, the bad 2 were so high i couldn't get a definitive #, then from their connectors to the relay they were all .3 ohms

not sure what ohming just thru the vc harness would read when good

Love the meme too. IIRC the tailgate is "rated" for 250 lbs so my wife and daughter could sit there and scowl while I stand there and wait for the tow truck.

I receive plenty of "friendly fire" about my Ford from friends at work. Here's one of my favorites...

Three awesome days in a row here, I think it's a record since sometime last year. And just in time for the Country Music Festival that they're holding here for the first time. I'm not much of a country fan (I usually even ummm misspell 'country') but the first day was good. That Dustin Lynch guy was awesome, he's a good entertainer as well as a decent singer (yeah, 'decent', it is country). Alabama was a great act to close the night out. Tonight Toby Keith is the closing act. Hope you all have as good a weekend as we're having here.

"Suuuuuuuuuuup fellas! It has been a CRAZY few months with breeding season. It's about tot settle down now with the sales coming up and the harder work being done. It'll be time for some truck goodies. The list incudes:

1) turbo rebuild or possible replace with a rebuilt/upgraded unit
2) Hutch mod FINALLY
3) CNC Fab HPOP replacement lines, no crossover though
4) a GOOD cleaning

Poor Ike has had a stock or horse trailer hooked to him all summer. I think I have taken it off maybe three times? He has been used HARD, but he still still runs absolutely frickin' great. Turned 280k miles yesterday coming back from Cheyenne. I got 18.1 mpg, hand calced, doing 70-75 the whole way home. Now, there was no wind though, so that helped. I usually pull between 16-17.

Hope everyone had a great summer. Wesley, I showed that Cowboy thing to my Texan wife. She got a good laugh out of it.

There is an issue with country music in modern times. It seems that there is a lot of "bro-country" going on and the younger generation likes it. I don't, but I tolerate it and once in a while a younger performer will stick to their roots and do a good job.

I like most of the old timers like Hank Jr, Waylon, Merle, etc... The newer fellas I like Chris Stapleton, Jamey Johnson, etc...

The weather here in north GA has been great. Sleeping with the windows open and a nice cool breeze during the day. Headed to the beach in a few hours for the week and looking to have a good time at our favorite spot.

Have fun!

Hard work usually pays off, good to hear you are nearing the end of it.

Good choice on no HPx line, just not a good idea. You have plans for what you are going to use to clean the truck engine? I had great success with Simple Green and letting it soak after a healthy spray down. Then a low pressure hose rinse. I did have to get a few rolls of paper towels and get down in the valley quite a bit with some brake cleaner, but most things cleaned up well. The smaller parts around the engine bay saw a tooth brush bristle and quick rinse.

Corey at CNC makes some great stuff and is a stand up guy.
