Oh well now that pulley is set for another 20 yrs 😉
IF NOTHING ELSE.....YOU HAVE AN EMERGENCY SPARE BELT TO KEEP UNDER THE SEAT.....

Here is what it sounds like, plus my front brakes are shot. Not having a good week with this truck.

That sounds more like fly wheel/starter or bit of a weak battery to me personally. Then the idle immediately after sounds really nice.



I did the riffraff ccv mod since it took about 10 min. Has a slight smoke/smell but no drips so far.

I have a catch can with the option to vent to atmosphere or route back just in case/

So I'm not sure what you mean the flywheel/starter?? Batteries are only a few years old, and ya at idle it sounds normal. Trying to decide wether to do the front brakes myself or take it to my diesel guy and have him listen to the start up

Take your starter to Napa and get it tested. Sounds like the starter to me. It's easy to remove (3-4 bolts) but be careful that sob is heavy.

Riffraffs kit only has the hose and it is ziptied to the frame and exits right before the plastic/metal guard for the fuel tank right behind drivers side cab. But here is the catch can. it has a directional flow metal screen so I just added some steel wool (not in the picture) I have not installed the catch can yet either because I want to see if my hose will ever leak without it first. but I got the parts at north40 its a chain of tractor supply stores like tractor supply etc. if I mount it because the hose ever drips I will upload pics. For now my hose is routed like the p[icture instructions on riffraff diesels kit.

I will only use the 90 degree fitting if I decide to route it back to the intake but I don't feel I will need that yet. As for mounting it on the frame there are holes for big zip ties or some u bolt set up etc.

uhhh, oooh! Yah, they were toast long ago. How are the rotors?

Look at my rotors I replaced last year. Never seen anything like it. They were on the truck when I bought it. Can't imagine what happened to them. Plus they and the pads were deeply scored.

Just a little bit.

I put the Powerstop rotors and pads on mine--truck definitely stops better than stock.
