Good site = new member.

Hey every one. I work at a speed shop called 3SX in Concord NC. We use a 97 F350 as our tow rig for the race car (the worlds fastest 3000GT/Stealth in the world) and it needed some maintenance. Sense all the other guys were affraid to work on it and my boss was too cheap to send it else where , I volunteered. It really was not very hard to swap out some injectors. But I was not sure how to prime the fuel system afterwards and this site was the only one I could find that had any good information on it for me. Anyway, just want to say hi to every one and I will try and help some people out with their trucks when I can.

Hey Bret...
Welcome to Powerstroke.org

Glad you found the information you needed here. Just one quick question.. did you drain the oil out of the heads before you removed the injectors? If not.. you may need to check your cylinders, as I believe that you may have dumped a bunch of oil into them.. and may hydaulic lock the engine.

Good to see you joined up.. and even if it is a Dodge, would love to see some pics of that Stealth, along with the rig that tows it.

It take a lot of posting, or even a lot of time to figure out this site has a lot of great people on it.
