Re: Rausch Creek 2018 June 22,23,24

When you clean your magnet check the air gap while you're there. Mine is adjusted on the tight side. Following the FSM procedure, mine will hold a 5mm hex socket snug. The spec is 5.5mm +-.25mm. I know I've posted this before but hears the procedure so you have it handy. Also while you're at it, try...

Re: 37" tires with 4.10 for those who do have

I've done Dana 60's and 70's which are much harder to do because it's all adjusted with shims. At least the AAM axles have spanner nut adjustment on the carrier bearings, that's half the battle. GM 14 bolt and Ford 9" are the easiest. Every mechanical discipline incorporates a margin of error, just ...

Re: Locker bypass for sale

Doesn't fit 3rd gen. Should fit 2010 and up (not sure about 17 & 18, if the connectors are the same).
I'll bet you'll have this sold in 24 hours or less.

Re: My 06 need to take my time build.

The first component you're describing sounds like the slave cylinder. Here's a picture from the FSM: Slave Cylinder.jpg The torque specs for the front driveshaft are, 21 ft. lbs. at the front axle end and 65 ft. lbs. at the T-case. The bolt head size at the T-case is 16mm or 5/8". The bolts at the f...

Re: 6.4 oil pressure hot idle???

Thanks for the very honest assessment. If the oil pressure is good and the issue lies with the “calibration” as you suggested may be possible would replacing the sender fix any issues with the calibration? I’d like to rule that out before bothering with anything else. Sure, it wouldn't hurt to give...

Re: 6.4 oil pressure hot idle???

If the engine is silent then the solenoid is doing it's job. Could just be sending unit calibration. Would replacing the sending unit with a new sending unit with nothing else bring readings back to normal assuming the calibration is off? Or, are there multiple steps beyond just replacing the sendi...

I just finished rebuilding this engine. I'll give you a hint, it's kind of a theme car.

Unfortunately rural living does have its drawbacks. I used to live in a place that took four hours to get to the nearest airport.

Here’s something for owners of late 14 - early 15 trucks to be aware of.

One cylinder head removed, lifters deemed to be "ok", however a borescope exam found damage to the cam (second lobe up from rear most lobe) which required removal of the other cylinder head. My suspicion is a collapsed MDS lifter which never recovered from eco mode and tore things up. I'm being tak...
