hey yall new here

Hi, I'm bithead08, some call me Darryl, no other brother jokes, please.

97 F350 7.3 dually, 167000, 4.10LS, dark tourmaline, 3" downpipe and some big *** cone shaped intake from riffraff, otherwise stock. Just bought it off the 2nd owner this week (3/11/13). Primary use will be towing 28' 5th wheel and pissing off Prius and Leaf drivers that get behind me.

Previously owned a 92 F250 regular cab 351 windsor and a 95 F350 super cab 7.5L gas (hog). This is my first PSD, so please be gentle with me if I ask stoopid questions.

What I'm doing this Saturday. I've done WPs before on other vehicles. I watched the 8-part YT vid by powerstrokehelp.com (Bill Hewitt) which was awesome (but apparently a lot of folks think he's an idiot?). Also one by that kid TreySpooner which was kinda funny, he kept dropping his tools in the coolant catch tub, lol.

I don't have the fan clutch tool, so I am going to try looping a web strap around the pulley approach.

Suggestions? Comments?
