Church is helping you with money?
They are. They offered to pay for the whole thing - but I felt obligated that since it is my truck - even though a missions truck - still my daily driver and that I should pay for something - so I opted to pay for parts.
Didnt realize the extent of what the parts would be!
$600+ for Gasket kit - every upper gasket, o ring, etc
$225 for ARP studs
$430 for new radiator (mine blew the plastic bottom tank out of it)
$205 for oil cooler Heat exchanger replacement rebuild kit
$35 for accessory belt (got 200K miles on it)
$110+ for all 8 glow plugs (all 8 snapped on removal - something about a plastic sheath?)
$??? V clamp at turbo down pipe that needs to be replaced
$100+ for new oil, filter, coolant
And who knows what else!
plus - in the last month I spent $860 (while on mission out of state - got a huge break on labor & parts) new drivers side wheel bearing, new front rotors, and new tie rod bearing.
Plus just prior to that - new pads in front, rear, rear rotors, and one rear caliber!
I'm dying here! I'm hemoriging money!
