    Dead 7.3

    Lets just hope the new heads take care of my problems for a while. Seems like there's a new problem with my truck every week.

    As for them tryin' to screw me, I really doubt it with this shop. They've done about everything possible to work with me throughout this ordeal. But I suppose anything's possible.

    He said he took them off and had them checked out while he was reaplacing the gaskets. I think he told me there was severe warping. The only good news is that I shopped around and found a set for a little over $300

    I got a call from the diesel shop this morning; they tell me I need two new heads. I sure would like to know what the hell the previous owner did to my truck.

    Yeah thanks again guys, biggest downside of the whole ordeal was that I had to borrow a buddies cummins to tow the ol' stroke to the shop and he took a picture of it and posted it on cumminsforum.

    Well I got it to a good diesel shop, they did a compression test on 'er and say that they think it's a blown head gasket. They're going to go ahead and replace both gaskets for $1500+tax.

    Just the fact that you guys generally think a new motor isn't needed I can breath a sigh of relief.

    I just called the shop back and the only answer he would give me is, "there is excessive blow-by causing pressure in the cooling system". This mean anything to anyone? Thanks!

    Well my stroke started overheating a couple days ago with no visable leaks. I finally caught the leak in the act ad saw it spraying out of the cap. The parts department ended up reccomending me buy a new cap, the motor still overheated but didn't spray out of the cap. Anyway long story short the...

    Got 'er all cleaned up

    Thanks guys, I'm really liking the baja guard; it's actually for 03+ so I had to drill into my bumper but I got an amazing deal on it. All I've gotta do now is throw some lights on it, just as soon as I can find some that don't break the bank. Thanks!

    Got 'er all cleaned up

    Brake Controller wiring for 99 PSD
