Well i moved from Tuscaloosa AL back to Panama City, FL two weeks ago and since the move i haven't had to use ether. It starts every morning great for the first crank of the day, but after that it varies. If you shut the truck off and try to start before waiting 30 minutes I have to use ether. Usually when we go eat somewhere it sits for about an hour. It starts in about 15 seconds after sitting for 1 hour.
I took the valve covers off this morning hoping to see that the top injector o rings were shot and oil would be shooting everywhere like the YouTube videos i have been watching. But they all seem to look fine. I also swapped another IPR that i know was good but it didn't seem to make a difference.
I tried to upload a picture but i guess i haven't posted enough to add pictures. I did a live data graph and 2 seconds into cranking the duty cycle starts to increase. Duty Cycle 35% ICP 250 psi, Duty Cycle 40% ICP 500 psi, Duty Cycle steadily increases until it reaches 65%. It stays at 65% for 7 seconds, while its at 65% the ICP slowly increases for 7 seconds until it gets to 1000 psi. When it finally gets there it begins to start then everything levels out at idle Duty Cycle 12% ICP 600 psi.
