Yeah, y'all are absolutely right. Then would certainly be the time to do it. It's one of those "while you're there, you might as well..." things. I think $10 a piece from Riffraff is all they are. Heard they could be a pain to get out and are prone to being stuck, though. Knowing my luck...

Finally finished glow plugs,UVCH,and gaskets. Did pass. side today not as hard as I expected. I was able to get pass side bottom valve cover bolts through fender well with stubby open end wrench and the rear bolt with 1/4 drive and 1 inch ext. with deep socket. 3 of the 4 glow plugs tested bad on pass. side and had all 4 bad on driver side. Retorqued rocker pedastals and injector hold down bolts. All were out of spec just like driver side. Installed new Western GPR. Installed new IPC pigtail as old one had all 3 wires bare at plug. Starts real good now.😉

Grabbed bunch of 4x8 sheets of 1/4in plywood for diy shiplap and a dewalt table saw and a miter sliding 10in saw. Dropped some coin today, felt great to not ask to barrow tools but my cheap side was having a fit like no other lol.

And also grabbed a little finish nailer kit. This being our second remodel we are much more organized and prepared.


Ps: don’t ever let the poor saps at Home Depot try to rip plywood into smaller sections. Granted I don’t work in construction anymore but it was flat out terrible 😕. I was trying to be super polite to help the guy cut it consistently and he wasted a whole 4x8 before I bought a table saw ugh.

Didn't do anything but took her on an 800 mile round trip. She did fine so she'll be rewarded with a bath. I saw plenty of 6.7s along the way but no 7.3s. I did see a 6.0 towing a camper. Only saw a couple 6.4s. so it seems we are rare and the 6.7 is the new 7.3.

6.7s are common, but it probably depends a lot on the area. Here in PA there are still a ton of 7.3s around. Even a good amount of municipal trucks are still 7.3s

Where in PA? Used to live in York, Lancaster and Bloomsburg. I'm surprised they aren't all rusted out up there. This trip was in Florida where they don't rust so I would think that there are many more down here.
