Pushrod Replacement - Piston Position Question
OK, replacing a few or all pushrod/pedastals on '00 7.3 F350. Have read about 2 methods on piston placement before tightening the 2 pedastal bolts.
1. Take out glow plug and insert long allen or screw driver to feel piston is at bottom while turning crank using socket on bolt on end of crank and then tighten the pedastal bolts. Of course you would be doing this for each particular piston for each pair of pushrods.
2. Ford service manual says put at 11:00 and then tighten the pedastal bolts, but wondering how that can work for all cylinders.
Does anybody have the Hypermax Pushrod install instructions? Not using these pushrods, but I would do a email trade of the pdf file of the 6700 page 2000 SuperDuty Ford Service Manual for the Hypermax instructions.
Doing this work due to first hearing some louder than normal ticking and now I am getting the fast "thump-thump-thump" noise out the intake.
