  1. Well done, great pics & obviously very easy to understand. So why not change out the banjo bolt for a easy 90 & a fuel rated hose back to the tank?
  2. The way this is written, I wish I would have started here first regarding fuel pressure & just how the overflow valve affects it as well. One item though, so what do you suggest for that 5 mile steep grade downhill? Sure you can play with the throttle a little, but?
  3. I was thinking along those same lines, but wanted to hear it from someone wiser than myself. On the rebuild side of all this..thank god. Work just keeps getting in the way. Appreciate the feedback.
  4. Here is my question regarding the timing cover (see pics) there is significant paint and/or powder coating on the inside of the cover where the seal is installed. Any advice on this? Remove the build up without changing the shape nor scratching or putting a grove into it? I noticed this on the timing gear cover in the video posted here as well, curious if it leaked. (Btw most pic's on this thread & the follow up thread will not open.) I appreciate any input on this. 75K is all I have on the clock & yes it was leaking. TY
  5. Right? I'm with crf450ish, simply done, kinda. Thx for posting changing mine out today. :0)
  6. Oh My, This very helpful, Thank you. I knew this was going to be work, good thing I enjoy working on & with my truck. (most of it) Anything I need to do to remove the smarty tuner? So far (think I almost have it figured out) my list is going to be: Quadzilla with Iquadbt & boost fueler & fuel sensor, Boss Mech lift pump, 100HP dap injectors, new cross over lines, VP44 with new electronics & 2 year warranty, BD Stealth kit (for VP44), cummins remote fuel filter/water seperator, stock lift pump relocator. (Boss Mech works with the stock lift pump for prime) Have a couple other items to add & It could all change by tomorrow. (no jet ski this year).lol
  7. Good Idea, I will check it out. Thank you. I assume this one: https://www.dieselautopower.com/ Or did you mean this one https://puredieselpower.com/diesel-auto-power.html
  8. Okay well this is a wealth of information thank you to all that responded. I am going to do the Hot Wire test tonight, but I am not sure if that will define anything since it would idle previously. I am trying NOT to live in denial about the Inj Pump failure, but it is what it is & the truck sat a long time. I would be grateful for advice on changing out the entire system, I had planned on eliminating the OEM lift pump & the fuel filter/heater with a dual filter cartridge system, but any advise on what system has worked for others would be appreciated. I have been adding 2 stroke oil to the fuel. Anyone have any input on VP replacement? I would of course most likely lean towards a Bosch certified dealer, I find it interesting when places offer 1 year versus 2 yr warranties like Thorughbred (I read the electronic update, etc but come on guys) Thank you again..I will try to keep this project updated with pic's & progress. Thank you for the code responses, we have had 2 hail storms this season so I am very busy, but I am going to dig in and do it myself. Any suggestions on where to get a VP pump or Quadzilla?
  9. Ouch Based on codes? or Behavior? or both? just trying to follow along. TY
  10. Running fine, turn corner push to 1/4 throttle instantly dies coast to shoulder. Sits for about 10 min to give a once over. turn the key it rough idles for 2 min then smooths out. It continued to do this rough idle start & then smooth out. Towed it home. Changed fuel filter, hooked up my Smarty to read codes. (7) codes P0251 Fuel Inj pump fail (replaced lift pump 6 months ago carter) (I can hear it run when bumped) P0252 Inj pump fuel metering P1688 Internal fuel inj pump controller fail P0254 Fuel Inj pump mech fail fuel valve P1693 Generic fault indicating fault in bus or PCM/ECM interface P0602 Control module programming error P0122 TPS low voltage I have not done anything else since changing fuel filter, I would also note that the Smarty gave me definitions slightly dif to what I looked up online such as P1693 JTEC module detectedin companion something or other. Any words of wisdom before I run pump & fill the stock fuel filter system? Thank you.
  11. Thank you. All indicators I have including title check/car fax & seriously looking it over for tell-tale signs before buying the mileage is accurate. So you think I should change it from a Smarty3 tuner to a Quad (I assume you mean quadzilla) ? Everything I read about Tuners Smarty3 was the choice for best and/or practical mpg, etc. (Until I bought it & had it installed then I found 2 respected opinions mentioning the Quadzilla as a possible better choice. My list is so long now of wanted maintenance & upgrades. Dowel, electrical interference (converter lock), transfer case support (supposedly a mount that fits GM will work in a direct fit), cooling system bypass, transducer etc for the Tranny and on & on.
  12. Sorry for not getting this on here sooner..Only excuse: I'm a roofer, we had hail come through, been extremely busy. Here is what I know: Gears should be 4:10 (based on codes), I have a Smarty tuner set on 2, injectors I have zero clue, Automatic with Gear Vendor overdrive that I use every chance I can. I did add a S+B cold air intake & a Banks intake with the down tube, I changed out all battery/power & negative cables & cleaned up all grounds (I believe it was 7 total including the post under the battery box that had 13 corroded ground wires connected to one terminal it.) Installed a new Carter lift pump (temporary until I change the entire system. Wheels: I am running 2018 OEM 18", and let's see removed the BD exhaust brake was rusted shut, but I have it operating now & will reinstall. Let's see I removed the 3 piece driveshaft & carrier bearing & installed a one piece driveshaft.. Transmission gasket/flush, 4 KYB gas adjust shocks (which I like, but I'm, thinking the front coils need replaced) When I have time .S-.belt, water pump, belt tensioner, etc Blow by: Have tried the kettle test (no bounce at all) I had a local shop check it out when I first brought it home, said it needed nothing (I won't go there for now) I now have my gauges Fuel, EGT & boost. & will have them in over the next 2 weeks. I have a 10K bumper pull camper have only pulled 3 times campground & back (within a 100 mile radious) & I use it for work as of right now. I do not beat it at all, I did take it up to Black Hills last year & On the return trip I pulled a aluminum trailer with 2 motorcycles on it. I ran 80+ for about 600 miles & averaged out to 15.6 MPG My first Diesel & I want to add the this site as well as Mopar man helping other forum sites with info, I did it all myself & want to continue to do so. Big Thank you! Miles currently are 76K Ok with all that said, I am thinking it is time to change out the injectors as I suspect they are original. I am after 3 things, Mileage, Dependability & next winters paint job. Any suggestions on what injectors I should try? I will probably have the old ones tested. PS: this was only a test pic for getting the vinyl lettering done
