Well that pizzed me off.. it took Amazon 7 days to just ship my order!.. I should have it thursday or Friday (hell to pay if it isn't here friday)..
Here's the lights I'm getting  https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01ATPDGS8/ref=ya_st_dp_summary?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Also found my AFC stop bolt was in fact limiting travel.. backed it off a bit and it seems to make a bit of difference... I'm getting closer to having the turbo well tuned, definitely need to get a 60PSI boost gauge because I'm wrapping the 35psi one right to the peg with ease.. so somewhere around 45-50 psi?  I think I might get the Hewitt Industries dual needle gauge so I can glance at EGP as well.. They also have some VR sensor pickups as well that might be handy.

Mine hits 40-45 then settles around 35 at 125k. But drive pressures can be over 2:1 sometimes so you might want like a 100psi one :)

Also thanks, got your TPS, thanks :)

I haven't paid super close attention to it, but drive pressures are much better with the new turbine.. the truck really moves now, I hit 100mph pretty easily passing people today.. Took my buddy for a ride, he loves it... t'was a long day, going to hit the sack.. good you got the TPS.
You MIGHT be able to bring it back to life if you get it hot for a while, It really bit the dust after I steam cleaned the engine. perhaps put it in the oven at 225* or so for a half hour would fix it?  might be worth a try.. what's to lose (A: the oven)

fork me gently... Head gasket is taking a dump again, and I'm not sure if I have a broken ring or something.. seems to have a little more blowby and the power didn't seem as violent as it was.. then again I had a lot of weight on it too... I'll be taking a trip to town empty tomorrow and will see what it's like

Screw Cummins head gaskets though, this is the 2nd one in 40,000 miles and it's on a freshly decked block with a new head and ARP studs, there is NO reason it should have failed.  I don't think I'm getting compression into the coolant, but perhaps some into an oil passage?  It's leaking externally pretty good around #6 cylinder.. I've dummied it up to get by a while...  It's never gotten hot either.

Well, my valve covers had oil inside the actual gasket. Like the part the valve cover sits in on. So if you don't have oil there I don't think you're loosing it into the oil just yet.

I"ll only know when i take the head off.. I can then inspect the bore as well and see if there's any scoring... it is down on power, roads were wet last night and it should have lit the tires off in 5th gear, it was just barely doing it

haven't bothered looking at the truck yet.. it runs well enough for now, not using any oil

In other news I'm putting together a wee little tractor engine.. 950cc 4 cyl 16hp

Should have the new engine for my welder here soon which will be nice...

Weather is miserable outside right now, raining, getting muddy as things thaw..

Bought another quad that needs a top end.. $100 should have it runnin again

I might pull the head on my spare motor, maybe even the cam, maybe even pistons..then do a swap and then only figure out what's up with my current mill

I got a new toy!!!!  '93 diesel auto XCLB, 300,000 miles, nearly no rust which is rare for these parts, recent tranny, front driveshaft, starter, alternator, water pump, lift pump.. paid $4200 USD.. I've already put $500 into it but it's well worth it.. it runs like a top and drives nice.

Also picked up another HE351ve with manifold and actuator.. not sure if it'll go on this truck but there is a possibility!

Are they stricter on the 350's than the 250's? it's typically the opposite up here.. we actually got rid of "Air Care" up here last year

You pay by GVW and in catagories, it's a drag. Going from a 3/4 to a 1+ is just another 1000 dollars.....................................
