Glow Plugs and Injectors

Well the truck won't start and the gp relay checked out good so this guy needs his GPs replaced. I replaced them on a 96 OBS where the engine isn't tucked under the cowl. I figured since I the valve covers were off that I might as well have the injectors replaced as well.

Do any of you guys recommend a mechanic in the Cincinnati area that's fimilar with 7.3L?

Thanks!

They really aren't any harder to replace on the Super Duty than the 96. I definately wouldn't replace the injectors "just because" unless you just wanna spend a ton of money. Especially as low as the mileage is (according to your sig).

I'm at 140k at this point. I've read lots of post that they sometimes go as early as 130k but others are over 200k with no problems.

I just got a bunch of stuff done to my truck. I know its a 6L but the guy that did my work also works on 7.3s. Hes right out of cincy, does good work and has really good prices. If you want I can PM you his name and number and you could give him a call. Just let me know. Randy
