to replace STC fitting or not????

Engine torn down....SHOULD I bother changing the STC fitting, even if the I'm having no problems??????


I have the kit (F).....was going to swap out while I was in there. I'm just worried I may cause a problem that isn't there yet. ALSO, I can't find any Crowsfoot wrenches to tourque the STC fitting or the IPR.

Any advice? suggestion?

I'd sure hate to accidently drop one of those bolt inside, when everything was running well to begin with.

truck has 106K on it.....what to do, what to do???? LOL

thx y'all

Do it now while it is so much more convenient. You won't be sorry, just take your time and be methodical.

You can get the crowsfoot for the STC fitting replacement at an autoparts store. Autozone will have a cheap set that should fit. Its been a while since I did this and forget what size it is.

For the IPR, I just did that by feel, without a torque wrench. Not too tight, not too loose.
