Parts on the way!!

Finally ordered some things I have been needing and some other things I've wanted. Here's the list.
New oem battery cables as mine are badly corroded.
Tru cool transmission cooler. (Plan to put in series with stock)
New belt
Riffraff billet wheel (had a friend who just bought one and used an impact wrench to change his. Have heard this isn't ideal, but please tell me how to otherwise do it or even link a video.)
May also add new glow plug relay if I end up having some leftover money.
Pics to follow in a few days when remaining parts show up and I have time to install. Summers are busy. I will take any tips/advice to help with any of the installs.
Thanks,
Jerry

nice! its fun getting new parts.

the "corrrect" way is to hold the exhaust turbine and loosen the compressor wheel with a ratchet, or use an air ratchet whatever to get it loose.
heard of lots of folks just shoving a screwdriver wrapped in a towel or sock in the ex wheel to hold it tight.

or just remove the turbo, which makes it easier.

let me know how the tru cool runs, im going to get one for my dad when i can afford to.

I just built a set of battery cables for my truck and my step dad's truck. The positive cable came out to around $75. You might want to look into that. It's half price.

That's not bad. Mine were a total of 130 for both positive and negative.

Well that's not bad at all. I got quoted $180 local for just the positive. So I wouldn't worry about it then.

Amazon and rock auto had them about the same price. Any tips on changing them, or just unbolt the top part of the radiator?

Be careful on the starter end. The plastic on the lug gets hot down there and causes it to get brittle. When I went to remove the nut, the plastic just crumbled. I ended up having to replace the starter too.

Ya, just pull the stuff off the top of the radiator and replace.

Well I got the transmission cooler in. Mounting was straight forward. Wasn't sure if the tranny fluid would leak without pressure, it does. There isn't a whole lot of rubber tube available to cut, but got it cut and the cooler plumbed. Will be driving it tomorrow and checking fluid level to see if I need to add a quart or more.
