question to you ppl.
is it possible to make the rear doors on the crew cab open wider. you know how like the newer (04+) dodge quad cabs the rear doors are opens 90` is it possible for our doors to do that or will the front doors hit the rear doors when fully open?

im sure it can be done but you would have to modify the hinge. Have a look at the stops on them and see if they have an actual stopper or if its just a metal on metal hitting point, cause metal on metal can be kinda massaged to open more

okay im seeing many threads on the exhaust backpressure valve. Where is it located? what does it do? what are the advantages and disadvantages of taking it out? I guess id just like more information on it. Thanks in advance!

ok the exhaust back pressure valve is located on the exhaust side of the turbo. its what the down pipe actually clamps to and is held onto the turbo by three 12 point 8mm bolts. what it does is when the truck is cold (based on outside air temp and EOT/ECT) it will close placing a load on the motor so it will warm up faster. If it works properly then its a nice feature but they are known to go bad and just randomly close when driving almost choking the motor. A lot of guys who tow have made them into exhaust brakes and they work well. The idea of deleting it goes off the theory of A) its not working properly so why have it? B) the exhaust exits the turbine spinning and flows well, then makes half a turn and hits that EBPV and gets all messed up. To further this point on trucks with it deleted you can actually see a swirl to the exhaust when they blow a little smoke. It also creates more turbo noise

No problem, Also a side note on them. If your chip has a high idle feature that can eliminate the need for the EBPV

anybody kno where i can get the banjo bolt copper washer's that are on the fuel system in the valley pan?
cause im having this hella fuel leak and the truck hasnt been running in over 3 weeks. idk if its building pressure in the tank since it gets cold---hot here in texas (screwy weather here)
it appears that the guy before me had replaced the hoses but i think im going to do that over again and make sure all the lines are tight. i just cant pin point the leak since its just basicaly a pool in the valley pan there.

Ok I have a question. I have a 97 F350 with the 4:10 rear end! It is an auto 4x4 and I am wondering what front end I have on my truck or what front ends they put on the OBS trucks. D60? I dont know much about the front and rear ends. Also what is and what does the master/slave cylinder do for a manual truck (I think it has to do something with the clutch pedal assembly?)?
