No not me been low on funds as my 2005 6.0 crapped on me nothing serious but a FICM repair along with Atlas40 upgrade so I have been saving my pennies.

I got my rig PA inspected and front end alignment. During inspection, they found a total of 13 broken exhaust manifold studs I was out of town for work when I got the call. It was just too easy to have the shop replace them while it was there. All new studs, fresh inspection and alignment. Ready for Summer travel!

Dropped the truck off at the shop yesterday and will be picking it up today. After replacing the radiator I was still leaking coolant....because i was an idiot and didnt replace the hoses. Just decided to have the shop do it since I dont have the time now and i needed an oil change anyway.

I am still puking coolant after replacing the cap. They are going to check into that as well. I really hope I do not need to do another head gasket repair.

How To Change The Internal Regulator In Your Alternator

Where did you get the replacement regulator?

How to: Remove unit form truck (duh). Looking at the back, remove the 3 5/16" bolts holding the back cover on. With the unit secured in a vise (via mounting bosses, not the body or pulley), carefully pry the back cover away from the body. This will reveal the regulator and rectifyer. The regulator is held on with 3 torx head screws. Remove them and it should slide right off the shaft. Your new regulator should come with a retainer holding the brushes in place, do not remove until you have it in place and screwed on to the unit. Reassemble. Do not over torque the 3 bolts. The pic is not mine but exactly the same.

She was a very sweet doggy.

The hardest part yet for me is not seeing her welcome me home or seeing her come around the corner in the shop. It is very hard for me to type anything out yet talking about her.



Micheal, very sorry to hear about your puppy. I am hoping and praying for the best for your puppy and you.

That's good news but curious how a inspection turned into finding broken exhaust studs? Emissions test inspection?

I am in a county that requires emissions testing but for safety inspection the exhaust system has to be checked from the engine to the tailpipe. Any leaks and it fails.

What year is your truck? You have what motor?

What did it cost you for rear differential cover?

Okay great I didn't know the 6.0 cooler was a needed upgrade for the 6.8 good to know will add that to list of items to get for my wife's Excursion.

That cover looks nice to probably do that on her truck and my 2005.
