6.0 Chat Thread
 
Alright, since nobody else has done it yet, I guess it's up to me to start this one. That way we can get back to "on topic" in the "what did you do" thread :lol: No topics in particular required.........if it doesn't take off I'll kill it, otherwise I figure it may help wrangle in a couple of the other threads. Up to you guys though.

So there's the awkward start haha.....

Good idea.

Didn't want to start a thread for this so I'll leave it here. Do I really need to mess with a starter upgrade to a 6.4 or 6.7 model? No starting issues, but my stocker doesn't exactly spin like mad, either. I have to pull it to install my Fumoto block drain so I figure that is the time to do it. I know to avoid the Chinese aftermarket junk, so where is the best place to score an OEM unit?

(If this isn't what you had in mind for this thread, nuke this post for me por favor.

Lol nope, that's fine with me.....high traffic exposure, with no topic for any/all answers and/or generic discussion....that's what I had in mind lol.

Do you NEED to? No....the 6.0 starters are just fine and have been used for years. Do you WANT a faster, higher RPM start? Then absolutely now sounds like a great time to do the swap. If you want new OEM, I'd go with either Sunrise or ANWBL here from the supporting vendor section.

Sounds like "preventive maintenance" to me...

Some people cant justify replacing good parts, others are in the mindset that "while you have it apart fix it all"

Just depends on what your budget is like and what you want out of your truck :dunno:

Speaking of...I have a 6.4 starter that needs rebuilt sitting on my bench that I have had since early last year....maybe it's time to finally get that done.

I got mine off of ebay, from a puck and pull type place for like $60 shipped. One of the best swaps I've ever done. I recharged my batteries at the same time too so i had to stop myself from sitting in the driveway starting it a bunch of times. I was so excited by the power starting. Lol.

Now we have a new goal to get another thread to 50k posts haha

Question guys, I read somewhere the adapter for the fuel sensor on the bowl is a 12-1.5. I have the adapter set. What do i do to install? Just remove the plug and let it drain and install the sensor? Or is there any other special thing I'll need to do. I mean, I know thread locker, o-ring on the adapter, etc. But is it that simple?

Depends on if you want your truck to start like this...
