    Machine shop

    surface grinder works the best if you access to one. Hardest part is setting up the table to hold the head so you have the entire surface available and don't have to changing mounting halfway through. but when I needed mine done and didn't have access to a shop I use a big rig machine shop. They knew the head casts by number and what to look for. Showed me the common problem areas. Even took a picture of the head after the first pass and how bad it was. couldn't complain about the 1 day turnaround either or the price.

    some VP44 info

    between the video and post here I know more than I did last week about the magical box that fuels the oil burner. But Even if the VP has been known to be problematic, stuffs out there to fix the issues. every truck of any brand is gunna have issues. This truck is just a fuel or electronic gremlin. Still, glad to have bought a truck with an easily drivable an tunable pump regardless of location and climate i find myself in.

    Turbo Install

    Should Be straight forward. Hardest bolts to remove will be the on bottom, especially the front in my experience. You wont be the first to replace a turbo in a hotel lot, I had to replace mine and also remove, clean, and replace the intercooler when my new turbo went out last spring in Alabama! But the hotel people didn't care, just clean up your mess best ya can.
  5. dont know the fella, but follow him on instagram and he posted this. some decent info if others didnt know, some i didnt know either. really hope is continues to how he put the VP44 24v in his 1st gen truck.

    Front Pinion yoke U joint

    Have the same yoke on my truck and noticed that cap issue when I first got it also it, a new yoke strap kit cured that problem. I also run greaseable moog super strength u-joints without any complaints.
  7. Have fast coolers and installed in my truck from a trade deal. Have the filter also, might be awhile but when I pull the cover to change fluid I'll let ya know how the filter looks. And if it's even done anything. But it I will say since I've started running it the trans isn't as stiff to shift into 3rd, was getting kinda rough due to worn synchros

    Blue-Top vs Redhead steering gear

    Been running around with a Bluetop for the past 40k, it's still tight with no issues what so ever. I'd buy from them again.

    ABS/brake light

    tested everything out tonight using the work fluke, used the alligator clips on the rear sensor, rear connection, and used the paper clip method on the CAB connector. All reading came out the same. I think it's time to Chase wires, I have a feeling my issue is behind the fuel tank so I'll be putting it on hold till I run the tank down more. Then the search begins.

    ABS/brake light

    Tonight I'll bring home my fluke from work, it's I. Better shape than my home one, and certified so maybe I'll get a better read. Will test the sensor, sensor pigtail, and CAB connection tomorrow again using the paper clip method. I'll post back results.

    ABS/brake light

    I used ohms at first, then switched to see if I got the beep

    ABS/brake light

    Sensor come back good, fluke beeps at me. So I guess now is time to play the follow the wire game.

    ABS/brake light

    when I read the abs CAB connection I read nothing. And when the brake pedal is pressed while running the scanner shows, 37 intermittent systems control module timeout

    ABS/brake light

    Where is the CAB connector exactly? Or what is it? I'm not sure if it follows but I can check.
