      I saw in a past thread that you had extra stock of the IDI valley pan drain plugs located near the turbo grommet. Do you still have any, if so what is the cost? I am working on one that has had a brass plug to replace the correct plug.

      Secondly are you still doing timing meter rental?

      Hey there, I'm back. did you miss me? I sold my old idi back in 08. I'm considering buying a 05 6.0 and trying to do some research on it. So far they look quite intimidating and expensive to maintain.

      Hi, I'm just checking to see if you have had any luck fixing timing meters. I'm looking for one to set my timing in Colorado. I did see a few shops in the timing registry thread. Thanks, Curt

      What brand/type of timing meters do you have for the "rental fleet"? There is a tool sale coming up and if I can get a decent timing meter reasonable I will be purchasing.

      Hey, you asked me to PM you about connecting rods. I created a 'conversation' with you... is that what you do on this forum to PM someone?

      I'm looking for info on your thinking meter rental program.

        Sadlt all my meters have broken. I will not be able to rent any meters till I have them fixed. When that happens I will post so everyone knows I'm renting once again.Very sorry this has happened too. I will be sending out 4 meters for repairs very soon so I will have at least one meter available. Gary

      I saw a post of yours from a while ago about a broken flex plate shim . Like you said, I can't find one anywhere . My truck has been off the road for a month and its my only vehicle! Is there any chance you still have one laying around.
      Thanks in advance

      Hello do you still do the dynamic timing equipment rental service? I recently replaced my pump and would like to time it correctly, thanks.

      Thanks for the question. The gear vendors splits each gear except 1st gear from the start. Not once your rolling about 20 mph it makes enough hydraulic pressure to shift up between 1 and 2nd gear. So you start out in 1st gear then shift up to 1st over. Then shift to 2nd and then 2nd over. The factory considers this an over under drive aux trans. What the black brain box does is keeps the unit from shifting when backing up or shifting at the wrong times. You can run without this brain but it can cause the trans to ruin itself too. They really are not that expensive and show up on ebay in the Gear Vendors search all the time. Does this unit have the large or small speedo housing in the end of it. The large one is the "P" model and a much tougher trans but they all are great units. They are no longer made in England. The Gear Vendors company bought the factory a few years ago and now is still located in the San Diego area.
