    So what did you do with your truck today?

    I'm very impressed! Do you have many hills to haul up and down?

    gonna try my hand at return line repair

    To slide new ones on trouble free, take a spare piece of 1/2 inch copper plumbing pipe with a clean pipe cutter edge. 6 inches is fine. Now rub the edge with sand paper starting at about 120 grit go to 220 grit to relieve the sharp edge. If you have a buffer, buff the edge with some...

    Dang Squeaky Noise

    My belt has been squeaking for years, just like this, and I spray silicon lubricant on it and it goes away for days. I just got concerned today that maybe my VP was bad too, so I found this thread. lol, guess it's time for a new belt. It's at least 10 years old. Gotta check tomorrow which...

    So what did you do with your truck today?

    Got new headlights installed, new headlight switch ( that's what broke ) changed a few burned out dash lights. Installed a headlight relay kit from lmc. What a difference lenses make. Btw, the plugs on the back of the dash gauges were stuck to the circuit board, like glue! So didn't want to...

    Towing ?

    I have a stupid question.( I probably have to make another long tow before installing a pyro): When do egt's rise the most, lugging up a hill as the rpm's drop , or winding it up, lower gears, up a tough grade?

    Towing ?

    On a naturally aspirated stock tuned ip, is using a pyro necessary while towing? I was under the impression the turbo created the hi temps. I don't tow over 7500# with my na stock setup. But I don't have a pyro.

    variable orifice tube ?

    I'm hoping this is closer to normal pressures and temp. Gonna try what I read on another thread. They said remove the blower and spray evaporator cleaner inside then check the condensate drain is clear. I guess then rinse it real good.
