    I guess I'm just lucky. Truck sits alot these days and I've not tried to restart it since fixing it. Hoping it stays fixed. Supposed to warm up to near 50 Sat., I suppose I'll try it then. -10 tonight.

    I just check for cracked shells. Bump 'em with the tip of a finger in the carton and if they're not stuck down, then they'll probably serve their purpose. I use a similar technique on people I'm around. I'd like to check the color of the...

    Allowing employers to become involved with healthcare coverage is one of the all-time biggest scams ever. Allegedly, the benefit to employer-sponsored healthcare was that by buying as a group, the benefits were bigger and the costs less. Horse...

    One of the biggest fiascos that has ever ensued is having healthcare become an employer benefit. The employer does all they can to hold the monthly premiums down, meanwhile the coverage drops to the legal requirement while the co-pays and...

    You know, it's funny. I work on diesel engines 6 days a week that are either 12 or 16 cylinders with pistons the size of 3lb coffee cans (yeah I know, not anymore), run 42 lbs of turbo boost and make 4500 horse power. You can fog an entire 16oz...

    I suppose it's a sign of the times. I've no idea what the situation is like in Alaska, but when I can order something online and have it show up on my doorstep in 2 days, often as cheap or cheaper than I can buy it in a 'brick -n- mortar' store when...

    Your statement confuses me. You need to know the diameter of your throats. It really does not matter what size your bullets are when you load them, by the time they travel thru those cylinder throats, that will determine their diameter. If all...

    Yes, I learned early on that there's no point trying to get in a big hurry or trying to pull a big load down the road at 80mph in this truck, because all you'll accomplish is making it smoke a lot and waste fuel. But if you don't mind ambling along...

    Well, the truck is finally running again. Went out this morning and made sure I had fuel and no air at the filter housing. Loosened all 8 lines at the injectors. Got a bit of fuel at 4 after 20 seconds of cranking, tightened those 4 down and let the...

    I don't think that's it, as it was spinning over slower when it started the one time than it is now since it's had a charger on it and plenty of time for the block heater to warm it up. Batteries are only about 14 months old. But I'll keep that in...

    I've been thinking of disabling the glow plugs after the block heater has warmed it and using a trigger squirt bottle to mist a *small* amount of diesel fuel into the intake while cranking to get a bit more RPMs and lessen the strain on the starter...

    It has a machanical lift pump, and I have established it is working by removing a line at the filter housing and observing fuel squirt a foot or so out the line in pulses while cranking. I also vented the air from the filter housing using the...

    If you want to skip commercials, you have to pay a bit more. If 'live' TV is available, it's not something I was aware of or tried. I tried it for a couple of months, no one was watching it, so I cancelled it.

    Well, I got everything back together. Made sure I have fuel and no air at the filter housing schrader valve. Still only cranks and won't fire. I have fuel at the return liine on the injector pump. Tried 5x for 20 seconds or so, then let sit 10 min...

    Ok! That's good to know. SO. Did a YouTube search and it seems that the line from the injector pump flows into the return lines, so no check valve there. Seems like all I need to worry about is the filter block. Perhaps I'll just cap it and see if...
