I assumed you probably took that curved shield off the fan shroud. Can pop it loose with a pick without breaking the tabs. I snapped some pics for reference. I know my trucks are somewhat different to yours but maybe it will help.

First is my 03. It has an aftermarket tensioner with no kickstand and is pretty open since its missing the stator. Also you can tell its built totally different. Even if just by feel.


Second in my 04, it has dual alts so its all kinds of sucky to work on. Also is stock as far as i know. But with that curved piece out the way its pretty easy to see down in there. I shined the light right on the kick stand close then far back to give you orientation. Its that tab sticking out straight down from the second alt pulley. Doing the belt by hand is almost a 2 person job on this truck but can be done. Id almost feel bad about it being so dirty but i haven't driven it for a few months since its broke. And while i have parts and money saved up, I doubt ill have time to fix it before spring. I do take it out and bring it up to temp once in awhile. Just cant drive it out on the highway much without puking all over.

nitrogen One thing you can do that is relatively quick and easy comparatively speaking, is pull the valve cover where you have the bad injector, and switch the plug to the injector next to it, and try the buzz test and see if the injector Buzzes correctly or not. If it is a bad injector the problem should stay with the injector. If it is a bad harness it should go to the new injector that the harness is now plugged into.

This year was a bit more challenging because of the weather. Last year we were spoiled by sunny days and cold nights with no moisture...not so this year. It was muddy when we showed up on the day before Thanksgiving, and it kept coming with rain/snow/wind/etc. for the first couple of days. This kept us out of some of the really remote areas we like but provided some nice scenery.



We never had to chain up and there was a little respite from the wet for a couple of days which helped. It came back towards the end of the hunt and I had to stay a couple of extra days to wait for a hard freeze so I could get the camper out. Last year the girls were both able to take their elk on day 3 of the 5-day hunt. This year proved to be a bit more challenging with the elk being more scarce and quite a bit more skittish. We had more time to work at it, and both of them kept their spirits up. Sure, there was a little frustration, but they never considered quitting and both redoubled their efforts. This was especially nice to see with my 15-year-old as she was sick the entire hunt, and even required a rush trip to Springerville to the ER on Thanksgiving night. All turned out well though she missed the opening morning but soldiered through.


It wasn't until the final hour of the 5th day that both girls were able to get it done. My 13-year-old struck first at about 4:30 while hunting with my Dad. Once again it was a one-shot proposition but at 142 yards this year:


My 15 year old waited until about the last 15 minutes of legal hunting hours. I didn't have time to range the shot, but estimate it was around 120 yards. After a quick reload and hustling across a short opeining and up a steep hill, we found her elk. Only one shot was required, but the exertion left her absolutely spent. You can see it all over her face in the pic:


This left us doing both elk in one night after dark. Everyone chipped in and we knocked it out pretty quickly. I'm extremely proud of both of them and was pleased to watch them work through the struggles. Both girls did exactly what they needed to do when the time came. Now it's on to butchering and planning for next year. Both have made it clear they expect to draw for Bull Elk next year.... <img src="https://www.powerstroke.org/forum/images/Powerstroke_org_2015/smilies/tango_face_grin.png" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

That's freakin awesome on so many different levels. Congrats on having great girls and being able to spend extreme quality time with them.

6.7ferd Sounds like a hassle. I had to leave, fish fry and beer was calling my name.

The only way I was really able to get in there was to take the shroud loose, loosen the radiator and pull everything forward. But I'm special, so...

@nitrogen Thanks!

I've spent so much time in the garage working on this truck that I know my wife is about over it. If the garage was at my place it wouldn't be so bad but I have shoot out to the race shop where my dad and I keep the car (Sportsman) to make use of all of the tools there.

I was *just* at the shop yesterday a few hours before the injector (or harness) went out on me. If it would have happened on the way over there I'd have moved the injector to another spot and see if it followed. Dang it!

Now I'm in quite the predicament: spend money + replace injector + deal with annoyed wife -or- spend money + replace injector + discover it's the harness that's bad + deal with pissed-off wife.

I can't get out to the shop again without having a potential solution in my hands.

That's AWESOME! I can't wait to do similar with my kids.

if you do a fan shroud delete with a big crowbar and a sledgehammer, you can put a long handle breaker bar or 1/2 inch ratchet into the square drive on the tensioner and pull quite nicely. It is also much easier to thread the new belt around without that stupid piece of garbage in the way

ZMANN i think it is garbage that they charge a core for brand new injectors
but I would make sure the company you are dealing with is highly rated so returns of the core and if you do have an injector issue that they handle warranty well
there used to be a sponsor on here that sold pure power " Accurate diesel but I would not recommend them to anyone

Due to dropping $2.5K on the truck already and having a 4 month old daughter, I'll likely have to do the one dead one and then knock-out another one here and there as $ permits.

Is there any "OMG Don't Do That!" reasons why I shouldn't do them 1 at a time as $ permits?
as long as they are real pure power units those are the ones I was suggesting

one at a time is fine other than what was mentioned
go throw same archoil 9000 in it ?
