    Leaking Fuel Return Hose

    Do you have a hydraulic shop or a hose shop near you? I had one made locally. It was only $30 or so. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

    LDS VS LDT and the real differences

    Well if someone has a sacrificial lamb they could easily build a test mule. Just add a better/bigger turbo along with a waste gate and manual boost controller. I'd be curious if we could even make it to 30 psi of boost without something giving. If I remember correctly, those who put boost...

    LDS VS LDT and the real differences

    I have always wondered how much boost the ldt could handle. It's already in the 22:1 Ish range. More boost = more compression. With supposedly weak rods and failure prone head gaskets it would be interesting to see. Which would lead to the next question. Are the head gaskets a poor...

    Piston Rings Worn Out, Time for a Rebuild

    If you spin a bearing or throw a rod you either had a faulty part or did something wrong. Either way it was going to happen regardless.

    Piston Rings Worn Out, Time for a Rebuild

    Idle it long enough to make sure you have good oil pressure. Then FLOG IT! The idea is to heat the rings up and seat them as soon as possible.

    M35a2 tires

    I have a3 wheels on my truck but they have gotten rare and expensive. However you can get recentered mrap wheels fairly reasonable.

    Runaway multifuel 6/20/14

    Yes pinion brakes have been done. They don't work past crawl speed. Reason is 2 fold. The disk is way too small for a truck this size. 2 the pinion brake turns much faster than the hubs do. Which only serves to heat the brake even faster. Remember with brakes the idea is to dissipate...

    Well....I mean you will get about a second of braking before it turns to slag....

    The problem is we are reaching a point that these may be all that is available.

    Runaway multifuel 6/20/14

    There is no throttle plate like in a gas engine. A diesel engine will slow down a tad by downshifting but generally the momentum of the truck will push right through the compression stroke. Since there is no throttle plate there isn't anything to put a hard vacuum on the engine to slow it...

    M35a2 tires

    Yes super single wheels are tubeless ONLY. There is an o ring between the 2 wheel halves to seal the wheel. They also give the correct offset for large super singles. There isn't a good reason to use the standard lock ring wheels with super singles in my opinion. They are hard to work with...

    Except numerous other people have used those lds piston kits with excellent results.

    Piston Rings Worn Out, Time for a Rebuild

    Tractor pull guys have wound these engines to 3500 plus rpm and they stay together. 2800 isn't as wild as you think.

    2300? Now I know he didn't load the engine correctly. He needs to get on it after a fresh set of rings. Babying it isn't going to get him anywhere.
