Overdue introduction from arizona!

howdy everyone, i've been posting on the engine help posts alot already, never introduced myself. i live in arizona, work at a ford dealership as a diesel technician. i am mod friendly at my dealership, and can prepare you before you go in to have work done. i am really good at diagnosing 6.0l, 6.4l, and 6.7l. i am not so good at 7.3l or 6.9l so i'll stay off those! thanks for having me at this forum, and appreciate the lack of trash talking here!

good to see another tech here! welcome! also, I may pic your brain on a few things later if you dont mind since your strictly ford diesel. I work on import performance and have spent time at AIM national lease as a diesel tech, and some general automotive as well. but to speak to somebody that works on these trucks everyday would be a real treat. thanks and welcome

thanks everyone for the welcomes! and urban of course. any questions you have, i'll answer to the best of my ability. you work on your e series much? we often refer to them as the devil wagons, thanks to notiously tight clearances! but you get good at them after a while

Yeah I work on mine. But not injector or studs yet. I will probably just pull the motor and replace it with a fresh build with all the goodies when thats due. but I love the doghouse because turbo is right there. easy to work on from an exterior engine standpoint IMO. but anything below the valve covers sucks. But it is all just nuts and bolts right?

true story there! a diesel is a diesel. something will always turn the bolts. well if you do studs i'd say pull the motor, but if you do injectors, i have an amazing trick for getting tons of clearance!!

you have my attention! I may be changing all of my injectors out pretty soon as a preventive maintinance thing.I'll keep the old ones as spares if they check out good. If you have a chance, send me a pm on your little trick. thanks!

there should be a core on your injectors, do you not want the extra money?
