Lower tube at the CAC.

It's best to keep a spare with you, because when it does blow off, it tears the ring off the inside of the tube that helps retain it to the CAC.

Failing that, take it apart, clean it up with brake cleaner real good, and put a light film of RTV silicone over both ends, and tighten it up. Actually, this could be done BEFORE a failure ever occurs.

I recommend investing in a set of DieselSite boots and being done with it. I have a set on my truck and have had ZERO issues with them.

Can you get a set to him by this weekend?

Since this was posted at 7:15 AM, I'm gonna assume he's on the road.

Since I posted at 11:07... I'm gonna assume he was LOOOOONG gone by the time I got my *** up and posted on here. LOL

I was up late....uhh....umm...watching television.

He will need to order them through someone like Rudy's. We aren't a DieselSite vendor.

Thanks guys I did get your mess in time and tightened them before we left. I am going to order them this week. The truck ran great I got 4th place, I should have got on it sooner, 4 more ft would have got 2nd.
