Lug Wrench too small!

So I discovered (fortunately in my driveway when pulling my injectors) that the stock lug wrench that came with my truck does NOT fit the lug nuts on the truck. It's too small. Anybody else have...

Cracked Injector

I pulled the injectors and took them to the injector guy. #4 was cracked. I bet that was causing my smoke issues. Ordered a new set of 40s.

Poor Man's Injector Puller

Well here's a little vid I made today, showing how I pulled the injectors even though I had no puller, and couldn't even find a respectable piece of pipe lying around. There are probably gobs of...

Algae. Wow. I guess technically it must be some kind of fungus or bacteria, since algae is photosynthetic (and fuel lines are pretty dark). But still -- I would have NEVER guessed microbes. What...

I did the crack-open test on the injectors today. Numbers 3 and 4 are definitely bad. Number 3 sprayed fuel way more than the others, and also produced a tick when loose. Number 4 foamed. Neither...

Ragnar, if I were to take your advice and go with the clutch upgrade first, could you recommend a particular manufacture of clutch in the 300-350 HP range (I can't see upgrading beyond that)?

Injector recommendations

Looks like I might need to check/rebuild/replace the injectors. May as well upgrade them, I'm thinking. Any recommendations for the appropriate injectors would be appreciated. Since I anticipate...

Still Smokey

As I said, I changed the fuel filter, but she still smokes white. And then she lost prime after sitting overnight. I suspect an air leak.

Last night I deleted the fuel heater and cleaned the...

EGT and fuel plate

If removing the fuel plate can cause EGT problems (and I'm not saying that it can, but for those who do), can a guy avoid these problems by simply paying attention to his pyrometer?

I just changed the fuel filter. Holy crap I've never seen a filter so sludged up. It looked like it has been dipped in dirty crank case oil. It was covered in black lard. We'll see if this helps.

Lotsa White Smoke all the time

Took a road trip from Kansas City to NM. Late the first night I got fuel at a podunk station in a podunk town (yeah, I know). Next morning, on same tank, I'm smoking like a chimney -- all white. ...

Well, Dad's been putting Amsoil in the truck since near the beginning. I know that he had to replace the clutch at 80k because he wore it out by never using 1st gear. The replacement clutch has been...

Thanks for the Truck, Dad!

Proud new owner of Dad's 97 Ram 3500 dually, which I've oogled at since I was in my 20s. Yeah, Dad's still alive -- he's just got a newer truck. So, merry Christmas to me. All stock as far as I...
