Just the rods and headstuds Oh and a new oil pan I wound up getting from the dealer because they had it in stock and I was in a hurry. I paid an arm and a leg for it. Thanks for making yours available Marty, but I was in a yank to get going. Now it looks like it won't be until middle of next week before I get my sticks:dunno:.

Is this the one I seen just a short while ago with massive carnage that was still able to drive it on the trailer?

Mine or Maintains?
Mine wasn't going anywhere by itself and the carnage was pretty impressive in a sadistic sort of way and that was with AC injectors. If I can I'll post some pictures of the pieces.

I have seen one recently that had some massive carnage. Ithink at least two broke rods and the guy was still able to drive it on the trailer. It sounded REAL bad and I was kinda awestruck to see the pieces and that thing still ran. I thought it might have been this one. Guess it was a different forum. Congrats on getting it back together. Mine should be ready hopefully tomorrow night, tranny the next.

Don't feel like the lone ranger on the wait. The guy doing the machine work called me this morning and said I need new valves. So I spent all day driving all over Gods creation and fighting loads of traffic getting parts. And now, neither the tranny or the motor is done. So I too will have to wait.

No
I installed new injectors. Stage II's from DDP because I was concerned about the PMR'S. They wouldn't run with the first chip Jody sent me so he backed way off on the fuel on the second one, it ran better but it still wasn't right, it would load up sometimes and smoke real bad. I had the injectors in 10 days and one night I was coming home and I got on it for a second and it sounded like an IED went off under my hood there was shrapnel flying everywhere you could here it on the firewall and under floorboards it dented my trans cover and knocked a hole in my fuel tank shroud. I lost 2 rods one I found in the gutter on one side of the street and I found a wrist pin in the gutter on the other side. I have some pictures in my garage of some of the pieces.

Are you local if so where. I'm wanting to get 8-10 7.3 owners together and schedule a time with Jody to come out and do some live tuning. Pm me if you're interested and anybody else that might be. Let me know and I'll set something up:thumb:
