Have you tried russrepair or R&D diesels kits?
Dude that's an amazing write up thanks! That's exactly what my bolts look like, dry exhaust side and oily elsewhere. I'm used to working on...
That's what my pop who maintains diesels on a farm said to try. I'm dubious, won't the bolts have stretched too much to hold? I mean I'm still...
No, of course I'll fix her. Just frustrating since this truck is bleeding me dry, financially and literally
Lol I wish. I was just getting ready to post it for sale, not ponder spending X amount of dollars! Or sell her with a leaky head gasket and take...

That's what I'd do. Spray on electrical tape?
But that wouldn't cause it to overheat right? I checked the coolant level after she cooled off and it's still full
Well got the beast back on the road and during the shakedown cruise I noticed the temp gage was climbing past where it normally sits,...
Painting various parts. Pit bull does not approve of OSHA drying booth.
Finally finished the rust proofing. Cooroseal entire frame, rust converter and painted body undercarriage.
Thanks man. I’ve put a lot of work into it, mostly just cleaning. I rescued it from a farm. They were good on maintenance but short on...
All dressed up and nowhere to go

Replaced various and sundry connectors starting with this manky headlight switch connector that was way past retirement.
