Check your injector wiring!!!

Ok, I just completed another repair to my '99 F-550. It started running strangely a few days ago and checked things out and found that the glow plug wire for #6 was shorting out against the push rod!

I took the valve cover off to also discover this: The plug was on crooked!

I removed the right side valve cover to see that the same problem was going to happen there and replaced that side too. See the wire rubbing on the push rod.

The new wiring harnes is routed a little different to make sure that doesn't happen again. Plus I bent them as far away from any moving object as possible.

It wouldn't surprise me if all the '99s with certain production run have this problem.

Hey Kwik this is off the subject but I was looking at your rig and 5er (Very nice by the way) Have you looked at the c-betr mirrors? I have some and I love em!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not only for towing but everyday driving too. Worth every penny you can see the side of the truck the three lanes next to you, your 5er tires and the rear end of the 5er too. Great purchase.

I never thought about any bigger mirrors because I have the non-adjustable Dumbo style mirrors that provide great visibility even while towing the trailer.

Kwik, The mirrors I am talking about are made to fit yours. I do have the telescoping mirrors, I am guessing yours do not move in and out but believe me you see much better with these c-betrs. They are basically the round fish eye mirrors with the ABS brackets to fit your dual arms that hold your mirrors. Look up qworks on the web.

Thank you for the tip. I have spot mirrors built into the bottom of the mirrors on my truck, but I'll check it out and see.

I will get a picture of mine in the next couple of days and post it. I think the website at Qworks shows a good piture of them too. I also have the same built in spot mirrors you do but these add sooo much better visability, and they just add to the existing mirrors not replacing any.
