No the guy still has it and is not responding to me, so I'm just going to have show up and get it wether it's ready or not. This is the first time I have ever taken anything to a "mechanic", and the last time
No, I picked the pump up from the pile of excrement and like I thought, he hadn't touched it, he said the parts were on order bla bla bla. I have a new seal, just haven't had the motivation. Thanks for checking in
The only reason I haven't done any of those 3 options is because I'm stubborn and want to find the problem lol. If you would've been close to VA on the day it leaked, I would have given it to you with one request...tell me what you did to fix it
No other o-rings could leak fuel into the crankcase but if the shaft is too worn (unlikely) or it has a nick from seal installations that could be the culprit but he’s actually pushing the front seal out of the pump. That’s a symptom of too high fuel psi usually.
No srcatches from what I can tell, it looks brand new. I installed them with a proper size deep well socket and a mallet, they all went in flush. I did loctite this last one to make sure it wasn't leaking around the outside of the seal. The guy I'm taking it to now says he run a bench test, so that's a plus.
I finally got the pump back on the truck a few days ago, and so far so good. It cost me a thousand bucks for the rebuild, and the guy said he couldn't find anything that would have caused the seal to keep leaking, so who knows. For not finding a problem, he did manage to rack up a fivehundred dollar part list lol
So over the last couple weeks I’ve been struggling with high egt. Towing isn’t fun (can do it just go slow) and even empty going up long hills things get toasty. For example pulling one hill at 65 mph I’m at 15psi boost and 1/4 throttle.... well normally by the top of the hill I’m at 900...
I’m finally getting some time to work on my pickup again. I’ve been chasing a brake issue for about a year now. It’ll slow down but barely do an emergency stop. Years ago I added a hydroboost from a 2000 Dodge following the advice here and holy crap you better hold on or you might bite your...
I am thinking about swapping my Getrag to a manual. I have Parkinson’s and eventually, I won’t be able to shift gears. This was my dad‘s truck and was purchased new. Would this be a reasonable project or should I leave it as is, drive it until I can’t anymore then pass it down to my kids?
Having trouble getting the starter to turn over the engine and need some help now. Bendix is engaging the teeth on the flywheel and turning maybe 10 teeth before stopping.
This is happening identically with two starters. One of which is brand new.
I’m using a brand new pair of 2ga 20’ jumper...
So I bit the bullet and purchased an electronic copy of the 1990 FSM through Geno's Garage. I got the disc in, which contains two .pdf files of the FSM and the Diesel Supplement.
Promptly opened the Diesel Supplement and started browsing, and I'm noticing SEVERAL pages (as many as 61) which...
