    Hi idle doesnt kick down

    My high idle on the 1009 does not kick down even when warm I have it disconnected until I figure what is wrong with it. The plunger seems to stick you can manually push it back in when the truck is warm is there a way to lube them up or should I be looking for a replacement?

    Using contaminated diesel?

I usually get rid of the CDR valve and hoses and take a three foot piece of one inch heater hose and make a...

    Strange CUCV Gen 1 light issue

    I figured that was going to be the answer I may just convert the truck to 12 volts like I just did with the 1008 be about the same amount of money to buy a 12 volt starter.
