I'd have to think that all IDI engines would have the same oil pan plug threads, regardless if they came from a van or truck.

My engine does clatter a lot more than when I left LA. Maybe the timing slipped a bit. I should check the timing some time this week. Overall, the engine is very tired. I'm just hoping to get it...

With my 7.3, the elevation affected it, but never as much as this older 6.9 is. I'm just glad it made it all the way up the mtns. The IDI motto is all about not getting you there fast, but it...

I should have clarified in my original post....

It's not a fan clutch problem. It's likely your t-stat.


To test your fan clutch, spin it. If it spins freely, it's bad. If it spins with resistance, then it's probably ok.

Good point. Might be hard to ratchet up a 4D. But a crack drive could be a clever solution. I haven't mig welded in a dozen years. Might be time to find a used welder and finish my brush guards,...
