  1. What error codes did you have? I'm pretty sure those sensors can be viewed on a live data tool and see if there functional.
  2. Absolutely... Once you put that much heat into the rotor it's going to radiate into the unit bearing cooking the grease. This is why I'm a big fan of manual transmissions and exhaust brakes. Automatics can do well too but with 4 gears it hard to get a selection of gear that prevents long brake usage I've got this problem with mt 96 Dodge half ton with the 46RE transmission.

    I know Smarty / Mads Electronics doesn't have any deleted tunes either. For the same reason. In any case it's tough to find a tuner now that has delete functions for removing the stock exhaust.

    Another failed AD

    Must be part of the loose nut behind the wheel problem. Everything is on the driver side that is an issue maybe the driver? Hmmm... Seriously if you ever make it to the west side I want a shot at that truck. I bet I can straighten that mess out once and for all.
  5. Lets put it this way don't get all wrapped up in finding Timken bearing. Let's just say the all fail just the same so why spend more money on a brand that will fail just the same way. I've been running SKF bearings and get roughly 150k to 180k from a set of unit bearings.
  6. Since the first flush. If it wasn't for the external rusting of the input shaft on my OEM steering box I'd still have it today. Still working with my OEM power steering pump. Zero wear was inside the steering gearbox and very clean with zero sludge.
  7. Tone ring broke loose. Same problem I had with mine once I replace both unit bearings as a pair ABS light is gone.

    Head gasket blown - Coolant leak

    Well first off I've got to Thank a forum member... But first the story... After going back and forth with it not going to be ready today to being ready at 3:30pm. I finally got ahold of MoparMom and told her we'll be going after the head when she is done with dialysis treatment. After an one hour drive to the shop. I'm greeted by Justin telling me... "Whatever your doing and the friends you have you better keep doing what you are doing." I'm very puzzled to this comment. Justin tosses the invoice on the counter and sure enough one of the members here made a payment on my bill. That member happens to be @portlandareae28 . It shocked the heck out of me. The comment I heard from Justin that Portlandareae28 has been very pleased with the help I've given him and he wanted to return the favor. Sir, you are a saint thank you from the bottom of my heart. 18 Valve guides 24 Valve seals Pressure test Resurfaced deck My Total $871.25

    VP44 question

    Your hearing the rollers and shoes rattling around typically the fuel pressure would load the rollers and shoes against the cam ring. Totally normal.

    Dang. I'm delayed. I've got to do a second trip back down to Caldwell, ID on Friday to get the head.
  12. Nope. Just install see if it shifts better.
  13. Ask yourself the question would you wash the oil filter and reuse it? I sure wouldn't.
