    Value of all the extras

    It's in there with what they cost these days. However, everybody has their take on the value of mods... like/dislike and diy vs installed. Everything on there is now used, not new.

    Best wheel adapters for 99up rims

    Shoddy junk is everywhere. Not paying extra for "Made in USA" from offshore aluminum. Pay attention when you receive your stuff, how it installs, and at regular intervals thereafter. Nothing is 'send it & forget it' in my world.

    Best wheel adapters for 99up rims

    I use blue/medium loctite when torquing the spacer to the truck. Edit: I also use aluminum spacers/adapters on a jeep with 30" tires. No issues there.

    Best wheel adapters for 99up rims

    I bought economical aluminum 2" spacers for the front on my Cummins w250. I've hauled 2tons payload and grossed to 13-14k towing. No issues. Based on that experience I bought similar aluminum adapters to run aftermarket 8x170 wheels (lug centric). Havent got to using them yet. That said, I...

    VE 12V starting

    I have a single tank, and not going to blend any higher. I prefer injectors with fewer and larger holes. Coking can be a issue with direct-injection, and I'm predicting the larger holes won't foul as easily.

    VE 12V starting

    @BeerKiller your mix seems heavy to me, so far as it only being 50% diesel. I have gone that far, but only with relatively thin/clean hyd oil; in the summer. I have never blended with gasoline, so I don't know the result there. Most Cummins trucks have a label on the sunvisor saying part...

    F-Superduty Antilock Brakes

    The axle pictured is the Carrera(?) version. Marmon Herrington also did a 10-lug Dana 70 axle for these trucks, with the internal hubs.

    Stock rims.

    I grab those wheels when I find them, for $25 or less, in local ads or garage sales.

    HX40 on a mechanical DT466

    Get a matching v-band ring and weld it to the elbow. I have the same job to do when I eventually switch from an hx35 to an he351cw.

    Failed swap, SRW Aeronose axle into DRW Bricky

    The Dana 70 and ford 10.25" are usually considered on par. You won't find a 8x6.5" pattern D80 until at least 96 in the e-series, and 99 in the f-series (actually 8on170mm). There's still D70's mixed in though (e-series). Dually pickups and most cube vans are in the 72-73" wide range. The e450...

    Water Bypass Connections

    On my truck (5spd) the lower fitting goes to the heater core. The other line from the heater core goes in by #1 rocker cover. The upper connection shown is plugged off for me. Maybe that jumper hose was used to eliminate the auto trans heat-exchanger?

    Failed swap, SRW Aeronose axle into DRW Bricky

    Not in this case. The longer pinion has more spline. It sticks out of the diff housing more. Edit: and since pinion walk has been brought up... The more reason to use the solid pinion spacer. The crush sleeve is a weak point in stabilizing the pinion under high load. Had the problem on my 95...

    Failed swap, SRW Aeronose axle into DRW Bricky

    It's the pinion and yoke that's matched. Housings will take either.

    Gasser Axle swapped on a 1993 F350 CCLB Diesel.

    The semi-float 10.25" showed up in 300 and 302ci trucks. It bolts in the same though. Front axles depend on GAWR.

    Looks like mouse nibbled pistons ?

    Throw away the gas-engine lean/rich thinking. More fuel is more heat. Turn up the pump, higher egts. Lube oil ingress can also make heat. As for one bank running hot... I wonder about the water jacket and cooling.

    Looks like mouse nibbled pistons ?

    Extra fuel makes high temps even without a turbo. If it's just one cylinder, it could be a bad injector. Also check where the ring gaps are ending up... Maybe it's pushing oil in the area of the burn?

    Looks like mouse nibbled pistons ?

    Is it's a factory Tidi? These handle the heat and pressure of turbocharging better. I daily drive a 2wd Cummins. A locking axle makes the possible for me, as most driveways are gravel or dirt, and long. The 4wd brute is for special chores.

    Looks like mouse nibbled pistons ?

    That looks like an area melting from excessive heat. Corners/edges don't dissipate as well.

    Gasser Axle swapped on a 1993 F350 CCLB Diesel.

    The yokes swap so long as both are long or short pinion. The split is around 92. If the yoke has play on the spline (usually leaks too) you should get a new one. Re-tightening a yoke on a used crush sleeve is easy to get mixed results. If overtightened, pinion bearings fail quickly. The solid...

    Gasser Axle swapped on a 1993 F350 CCLB Diesel.

    I don't have the bandwidth to load the pics right now, but you're likely dealing with the difference between any of the 1330, 1330C, and 1350 yokes. There are conversion joints for those. If you want the max strength and both are long-yoke diffs, I suggest getting a solid pinion spacer, a new...

    7.3 idi with 6.2 Detroit governor spring install

    If the gm spring acts like a Cummins gov spring upgrade.... Doesn't mean you have to use the top end. It will improve throttle response at lower rpm.

    Cracked T19 belhousing and popping out of first...ZF5 or fix?

    Yes, I have an iron bellhousing from either a 351M, 400 or 460... Not sure the year. It is for mechanical linkage though.

    Cracked T19 belhousing and popping out of first...ZF5 or fix?

    One was CL (trans only) the other was a different local ad (core Idi + ZF) Buddy got a whole ZF diesel truck for a song because it was high-mile and rusty. I think we got many more stick-shift trucks up here. Maybe it was the logging and fleet use. Back around 97-01 I worked at a shop that...

    Cracked T19 belhousing and popping out of first...ZF5 or fix?

    I'd do the ZF... but maybe that's because diesel S42's have been easier to find (for me - at $100-250ish). Gas ones are tough tho.
