I picked mine up from mechanic today. He fought and fought with an up pipe that had been hooked up wrong for a long time. It was letting smoke into my cab. He also put on the new hpop lines and a wicked wheel. It runs much better now. :-)

I stopped and looked at a 6.0 on the way home with less than 100k on it. Tempting.... but who needs 4 power strokes in his shop?

They say things come in three's, and she just did the 3 on me. Brakes, then calipers, and then the leak. I was excited about reaching 300K but now that I have hit that, I feel she is old now, and lost a ton of value

New IH up pipes and EBPV delete

01 F-350 7.3L with Edge Juice module.

Yesterday I installed new IH up pipes and Garrett EBPV delete pedestal and plate form Diesel O Rings. I went with the MUCH more expensive (twice the price) IH up pipes from RiffRaff Diesel because of all the negative issues I've read about with Dorman brand. We'll see how it goes, in August I have a 2500 mile trip to pick up a 28 foot travel trailer and go camping at MT Rushmore and Glacier National Park.

Today I WAS putting new O rings and gaskets in the oil cooler but Ford gave me the wrong gasket for the front of the oil cooler ( and of course it's Sunday). They sent the diagram and the diagram says they sent the right ones but the diagram is obviously wrong. The pictogram shows the front is shaped differently but the part number shown on the diagram is the same as the rear gasket.

Researching online today I found the correct part numbers they are
Front F7TZ-6A636-AAA
Rear F4TZ-6A636-A

Those are indeed the correct ones. I did the IH ceramic coated up pipes from riff raff last year and I've been super happy with them, no exhaust leaks and install was a breeze (with the trans out of course). I ordered my oil cooler seal kit from riff raff too and that's what they sent

Installed an Odessey 65PC-1750T
This has been the best spent money on a battery.
Also installed a Motorcraft MAX BXT65850.
Threw out the junk Interstates I bought from Costco, one would not recharge even after "rejuvination", the other still decent to go in my EZGO for running 12 volt accessories with solar charger.

I took it over to give it something to drink. Was a bit thirsty - drank up 36 gals. Then...I went to the grocery store so I can feed the family. Wednesday, we head for the coast to get away from the 95-102 temps. Been running about 25-30 cooler over there.

Replaced fuel filter.

Third attempt at stopping the slight oil drip I was getting from the lower passenger CAC boot. Completely removed this time, cleaned off, made sure rib aligned and clamps centered... love the quality of the upgrade boots and clamps but if I get another single drop of oil from it i will lose it. Oh well, third times a charm, I reckon.

Pfft. I keep a log book of every trip and fuel stop. I'm currently at 4,800 miles of a 5,200 cross-country trip. I made an entry yesterday and noticed this was my 5th entry in a row of "$150". 10 MPG towing, with a 50+ gallon tank, about $3.00 a gallon. Adds up.
