Talking studs and more

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok, I've got bad injectors. Dealer want's $8,000-$10,000 for injectors and head studs. I decided to do injectors, studs, gaskets and EGR delete myself for $3,500. Here is the story.





There she is.



Turbo and intake manifold off.


Old injectors.












Truck has 128,000 miles.

Now that we have it apart, let's start putting it back together.


Hypermax stage 1

EGR delete.


CCA delete.(two washers,a bolt, silicon and two nuts.)

Silencer ring removed with 3" hole saw and buffing wheel.

Got it back together, cranked for about 30 seconds and fired right up.
It took my son and I 25 hr. to do this.
P.S. Don't forget to put the tranny dipstick tube on before you put the cab on.

P.S.S. Don't ever, ever, ever spin the steering wheel when it is disconected off the shaft.

Excellent post!

I'm wondering, what did you do with the A/C? Did you do anything with it at all?
