Man I FUBARed my banjo install yesterday

Well, I put my 6.4 banjos in yesterday and of course did the passenger side first. As everyone who has done it knows that ones easy took 5 minutes I was pretty happy . Then I get to work on the driver's side. I knew it was a little more difficult so I just went at it. After struggling getting the original one out (that da*n hose clamp) it finally came out. I threw the washer on the new one put the washer on the back (PITA) and finally got the threads started and got it back together. Total time about 1.5 hours.

Last night go to leave for hockey, turn the key on and sounds a little like the truck is peeing, but it didn't hit me quick enough and I turn it over. Starts right up, but now it sounds like I built a waterfall into my truck. I look underneath and diesel POURING from the engine &&^&%$&^%. Turn the truck off.

Well tore back into today and learned that I apparently dropped the washer off the back of the driver's side bolt . Good news is I had another and got it fixed today IN THE F'in SNOW .

Yeah, I made things easy on myself today and took out the battery, air box, intake tube, and upper radiator hose. It made things as easy as pie to get to that hose clamp for the heater hose that down there. Moved that thing up and pulled the hose off. Got the washer on the first try and was able to tighten it up much easier.

If you buy the washers that are connected together it makes things much easier. I don't have the part number but you could probably ask at the parts counter.

Well, had I known those existed I might have asked for them...good info to know now. Hopefully someone who hasn't done it reads that and is able to get them.

Thanks for the heads up. Once my truck gets out of the shop for some warranty work on the oil cooler, I will be flushing the coolant, installing a coolant filter, and installing the banjo bolts.
