OK.. so in my last 72 hours...I did have to run to the dealer and pick up a few parts..sitting there was a silver 2012..leather..sunroof....beside me a loving wife saying do it.....part of me saying ..no..life without a payment is nice...
Ok...back to the real work...2004 F250 with a 6.0 -- 95K in miles. replaced EGR about a year a go with a Bulletproof version.
Installed 6 weeks ago...IPR coolant filter with one of there nice oil cooler manifolds to pull water from the cooler to the filter.
Completed Restore and Restore+... Ran 90 minutes each with multiple flush's 25 gallons of distilled and added Fumoto valve on drivers side. refilled with RED ELC...
Friday night....rolled in to tear down at 7 pm and had the oil cooler in my hands by 10:30 pm...shade tree mechanic...LOL
Saturday...trip to dealer for a new exhuast clamp.....DROOL on the 2012.
Clean up parts and started rebuild. NEW cooler came from BD Diesel..with blue spring update kit and minor gaskets.
Had truck 80% back by midnight. Decided to roll into sunday..rather than push it til the wee hours.
Sunday morning...wrapped up minor items and started truck..little hestitation as fuel built presssure. I added Pyro for my Edge Insight as well...figure now that I am in mechanic mode.. geterr done. I added new thermostat in the mix.
Lost turbo boost.. due to MAP sensor hose no being plugged in and slight exhuast leak on ERG Cooler clamp....3 hours to get that resolved...NEED tiny hands to work on this truck.
OK..Boost is good 25-28 PSI--..EGT temp in stop and go traffic is 300-500
Today is Monday and ride to work is about 10 miles freeway.
Coolant 190........Oil Temp....210-215.....
I think I have four options...
1. $$$ Bulletproof diesel--full solution
2. Water pump..?
4.That feeling when you pull that baby off the LOT......grinning..in a 2012 F250.
What do you guys think.......??????????
