It's about that time.

Well i finally popped my gaskets Friday night Blowin the doors off my friends cummins. So i guess now it's time for Some new gaskets and ARPs

As of now i will hopefully be doing this cab off so what i'm looking for from you guys is the procedure to get my cab in the air.

And another question is, Saturday i noticed the antifreeze on my Driver coil and suspension parts. popped the hood and only saw a tad bit on my degas bottle and my level was just a little below my min line, Didn't drive the truck yesterday and this morning before i left i let the truck warm up for bout 10 minutes and checked the level before i left same spot. when i got to work this morning there wasn't coolant pushed out... How long do i have till i F something up?

Moneys tight and it's gonna take me a good couple days to save up $400 for my studs plus money for odd things....

I don't see anything in your sig that says you are monitoring your ECT and EOT. Is that just an omission or are you truly running blind? Don't get ahead of yourself buying parts till you know what the problem really is. Have it checked for hydrocarbons in the degass bottle.

I'm confused now. Do you leave your SCT plugged in? Why not run the Edge in stock mode just to monitor?

you can use just the monitor, i used to before i got my DP and gauges

a local guy is running blind too, he has TOO MUCH done to his 7.3, but yet he still dont think he needs gauges

I'm doing my gaskets now myself and went with all the recommended parts and had the heads checked out. I'm over $3k deep. The heads need more than I was expecting and the local Ford dealer charges list price. Bondsman sent me a list to remove the cab and it's right on. I'll pass it on but I need your email address.

Many trucks won't even let the SCT read the strategy with the Edge JP hooked up. I know this first hand.

Some have said you can disconnect the Edge, flash with the SCT, then hook up the Edge again (set to stock) to monitor. I never tried it but I have my doubts whether the Edge is still affecting some settings even set back to "stock". After my experience with the Edge, I just don't get a warm fuzzy that it will be "out of the loop" in every kind of way aside from paramater monitoring.

OP, are you sure your gaskets went? Coolant all over the driver side suspension screams coolant cap.

Harley are you doing the job yourself and your in for 3K or the shops doing it and thats with parts and labor??? What were the problems with your heads? and check you PM

And sloppy, Are you saying my cap could be weak? or are you saying the coolant came from the cap? Bc when the gaskets go it pukes from the cap, from pressure in the coolant system leaking in from the cylinders if i'm not mistaken?
