    6.2 Civi Vs. Military

    I read an article years ago that stated the pre combustion chamber cups were designed in the military heads to allow them to run a broader range of fuels.I have a 1028,and 1031. Both engines are extremely loud compared to civilian. Just installed a civvy pump and injectors on a friend's 1028...

    6.2 Civi Vs. Military

    I was referring more to the injection event noise.Civilian motors are so much quieter. My understanding is that the pre combustion chamber slot size determines how fast the combustion event takes place.these old mechanical pumps just push the fuel out in a big shot pretty much,and the size of...

    6.2 Civi Vs. Military

    Yes, I have that silencer system on a civilian truck. But I have to pull to exhaust manifold bolts for the support bracket. I've been a little leery to pull them because everything sealed up well.

    6.2 Civi Vs. Military

    6.2's differences I have owned many 6.2 and 6.5 engines over the years. And have had good luck out of all of them. Why are these military motor so much louder than the civilian versions? I just helped a friend install a civilian pump and injectors in a 1028. It's still sounds like..a cucv...

    it looks like the driver side axle mount is pushed back

    I am referring to the pivot point at the rear of the spring. And as stated above, if the rubber is gone in the bushing,or a center pin broken on the spring pack. But if it has scooted back you ought to be able to see signs of movement around the U-Bolt area.

    it looks like the driver side axle mount is pushed back

    I just went out and looked at mine.. my passenger side bumper is lined up center, but the driver side axle is slightly behind that bumper. But not as far as yours.I would observe the shackles on the rear of the springs on both sides to see if they appear to be at the same angle.. you might want...

    What have you done to your CUCV today/lately - Part 2

    I went out and rounded up all the original parts to remove this lift kit from my 1031. I was lucky and ended up with the original springs ect. to return it to stock ride height. The big tires and lift look good, but... I use this truck for utility, you almost need a ladder to reach the vice with...

    Engine restore oil additive and the multifuel

    I hope my post didn't come across as bashing, certainly not my intention.the statement that diesel fuel will never be coming back is very true. My company truck is a 2013 6.7 Ford. That engine is an absolute monster. Quiet and smooth. In stock form, is one of the most powerful trucks that I've...

    Engine restore oil additive and the multifuel

    Engine restore oil additive and the multifuel

    I personally don't run additives. But the stanadyne treatment worked really well on my db2.I was ready to replace the injection pump,but someone suggested on here that I try the stanadyne. It's saved me a lot of work. My daily driver is an 04 common-rail Dodge. My original injectors made it to...

    50/50 crude oil mix

    Well..all of my testing was strictly off-road of course. Lol.. I have filtered approximately 35 gallons so far. I thought I would cut the filter open on my transfer pump and see what the filter is catching.

    50/50 crude oil mix

    They aren't that expensive to buy here. These are what are called small stripper wells.these make At most 200 barrel a year. And free gas for the garage furnace. They are kind of fun to fool with.. I probably have two hours a week in it. This is such small scale it's almost hobby.

    50/50 crude oil mix

    This crude comes from the Injun Run sands about 1100 feet here. It's color and consistency is very similar to diesel fuel anyway.

    50/50 crude oil mix

    Just ran a tank of 50/50 crude-diesel through the old girl.Other than quieting down the motor dramatically, it appeared to run just as well as straight diesel. I may refine my filter setup,but the gauge on my small transfer pump didn't show any blockage in the filter. After I filtered it I just...

    Engine restore oil additive and the multifuel

    Find a large quantity of zinc additive. It has been phased out of oil almost completely, which is fine for the newer engines but not our old stuff.some of the racers that I hang around with our find camshaft break-in additive to get there zinc back in their oil.
