Clean the hpop resevoir before you yank out the screen. Everyone wants to see the busted screen first, then they are posting on here why their truck cranked and ran for a few minutes then died and won't crank. It's because any trash they could have cleaned out first, fell down and got sucked up by the hpop and shot through the ipr screen. Not saying it's a guarantee, it's good practice, and common sense. Keep us updated.

If you don't have a photographic memory and/or this is your first one, take pictures to aid in reassembly.

Grab some zip lock bags from the kitchen and a sharpie. Bag and label fastners.

Put zip ties on the fuel lines to keep the nuts from sliding down out of sight.

Mark the intake with an S by the studs and a B by the bolts. Then you won't have to swap them around when you lay the harness back in. A quick shot of carb clean will take the sharpie off.

I had bruises in places where bruises should never be on a man after doing it without a topside. Damn that hood latch..
OP: Check my signature line for a link to the step by step for this, with all the files you will need and some notes.

See what happens when you leave the doors unlocked? Never know who might pop back in here.
Working a heck of alot more than I was in the past, which has really cut down my online time. Have to take the good with the bad I suppose.

some people are pulling radiator & having it boiled out cleaned or replacing it, to get all the crap out. Don't want to plug up new cooler. Doing mine as soon as I clean out shop.
Anybody need a used oil furnace or I have a couple of 90% gas. In Wisconsin, Milwaukee area.

Don't foget the fuel line that bolts up to the intake manifold right under the intake elbow it bends easy. and the 2 bolts from the fan shroud 15 mm I think. You will also need some torx bits for the Oil filter housing.
