Fixed my STC fitting. Not too bad.

So my truck left me dead on the road the other day. I accelerated and when I let off the gas it cut off and wouldn't restart. Ghetto checked my ICP voltage and it read .248 so I assumed high pressure oil leak. Tore into the motor in a parking lot and replaced STC with updated fitting and noted that my IPR screen had a hole and noticed the piece of screen stuck down in the valve. After 2 hours of trying to get it out (it was jammed in there) got it out and put on a new screen. Got the truck back together and she fired up better than ever. If you are considering doing this repair and I would encourage you to try it out. I was nervous but it isn't that bad.

Nice, I did my dummy plug and stand in the driver side but it has been raining so I have not got to the pass side yet, as soon as the weather will allow I will do it then the stc fitting is next, I'm working in the street as my truck will not fit in the garage so I have to wait on the weather.

Nice. I see you already have a cooler delete. That makes the job go atleast an hour quicker.

oh yeah, and you're not supposed to reinstall that old bracket over top of the new STC fitting (the new bolts aren't the same length). Apparently your STC was already changed once and that's how that bracket got in there. did you actually verify that the STC was blown out again? It sounds to me like your IPR was the cause for the no-start......that leaves me wondering what went through the IPR to blow the screen out....?
