Man that sucks Ryan....Any idea when it happened?


This could be a good time for a Cummins swap..just something to think about :blues:..But I know how you love your D-Maxes.

ok soo why would you put a cummins in to replace the dmax,i like cummins but if you would spend the money for the swap i would think u would go with a stroker kit,:doh:

It looks like it was fireing outside the bowl a little. Atleast it didnt destroy the motor tho. How did you tell it was bad.

Surely you can get the stroker kit cheaper if you shop around.

It was runnin real rough and blowing oil out the fill tube. It got the side of the cylinder wall a little. Prolly bore it a little and it could be already.
