That's weird, I remembering it being a coarse thread when I checked mine.

Hooked up a small LED on the dash to the cold side of the glow plug solenoid.

Noticing continued improvement in my power steering from putting 6 ounces of SeaFoam Trans in the reservoir.

Couple of side marker lights to do today.

I took out the 7.3 paper weight and installed a 6.7 Scorpion Powerstroke Diesel Engine. She runs so much better now

I bet in almost 22k comments, nobody has used that one before!!

I went to clean out the screen on my Fuel Pressure Regulator (FPR) and found NO screen. Is this normal for a 2002? Were they only on the earlier OBS 7.3s? Maybe removed by a previous mechanic? Or did the stupid thing come all to pieces and end up going to the tank? I cleaned up the spring, check valve, and reinstalled. Didn't see a check ball in there like earlier years either....
