A little help needed with a 7.3l!
This is my first post here on the forum, though I have been dabbling around a bit. I have got lost (mostly sidetracked with future project ideas) while on here. I know my way around gas engines pretty well, and I'm adapting to diesels. I guess my biggest qualm is the spark plugs. There aren't any. But now that I'm accepting this, I am doing my best to save this truck from becoming another piece of redneck lawn art.
Here is where I'm at: I have pulled an old '00 F-250 work truck from the bone yard. It was parked a couple years back when it started knocking, and I'm doing what I can to get it going again (haven't cracked it open yet, but I'm guessing powdered shell rods). It was a pretty stout truck back in the day, and got a new tranny, turbo and exhaust less than 1,000 miles before the engine got noisy. I have a new long block inbound and have pulled the old engine, but I need to know what consumable parts (gaskets, o-rings, random nuts and bolts) I'll need to stock up on before I begin swapping over the parts from old to new. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
