Need help, possible problem

Hi I posted this on the problems forum and haven't gotten much of a response.

I changed the fuel pump and lines on my truck last friday afternoon. Saturday morning I washed the engine before I ran it and blew everything off before I started the truck. One thing I forgot to mention before is when I started the truck the glow plug relay was smoking, It stopped after about a minute. It ran fine all day Saturday. I had to pick up a new chassis in north carolina sunday, this was about a 6 hour round trip. The truck is running fine and hasn't lost any power but I can feel a vibration in the floor pan and the truck shakes badly when I shut off the ignition. I noticed it when we stopped to eat lunch and it doesn't seem to be causing any other problems.

I'm wondering if it could be the engine missing, maybe a problem with the clutch and flywheel, or if I could have a bad engine or tranny mount. I'm still driving the truck now, sometimes it doesn't do this at all. I'd like to get it straightened out this week. I have to pick up a car outside of tampa, fl next weekend.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I would suspect the flywheel. It is probably missing a few springs.

Problem found!

I feel so stupid! I've been worried all week about whats wrong with my truck and it was the cone filter I installed hitting the master cylinder. Thats why I felt it in the clutch and brake pedals. I've got it fixed now, thanks for the help.
