    Haven't drivin my 08 in a while seems the tires are shot but I did take it a few miles away to look over a trailer that someone put up for sale. Everything looked M101A1, but something just didn't look right to me. Three hours searching pictures and it finally clicked. It's an earlier M101, has different parking brake handles. No wonder it looked odd. No one was there to talk to so no idea what they are asking for it, not sure I want to know. Has a new cover, wiring looks new, and looks like they put a lot of time into it. Probably gonna want $$$$ for it.
    Also found I have an injector line leaking at an injector. I have the seal kit for the injectors already, looks like I'll be buying lines now too.

I have a gate at my house right now that is FUBAR. I will be working on that. I use brush seals in addition to the stock brittle outside window wiper. But only on ones that it don't matter on. I still have 2 new GM M1009 gates in the GM boxes and have been fixing every gate I can get my hands on. I have a few spares and a few tricks for replacing the side run felts in the gate. Good Show. I hope you used grease and oil. Spray lubrications on the rear gate moving parts are a waste of time.
    Oh yeah. Heavy grease on all the teeth and gears of the regulator.

    Works like new now!!

    Good luck finding new injector lines. I searched hi and low back in 2013 was only able to find 7 of 8 lines. You may find you don't need to replace all your lines. what happens is they tend to crack at the flare nut from years of vibration or overtighting.

    Injection pump Spider lines are hard to come by? I did NOT know this. I will keep that in mind as I just scrapped a few 6.2 engines complete. I don't get any calls for them anymore and I don't trust to sell them as operational. Transmissions are in the same boat. Too old to warrant and scrap money beats storage. Thanks for the insight.

    Watch eBay.

    I found a NOS complete set of GM injector lines on eBay just over a year ago.
    Very good price.
    Haven't used them yet, but at least I have them.
    My spare 6.2L Diesel that’s still in the shipping can also has an undamaged set attached.

    Aftermarket lines are available.
    At least when I was looking over a year ago.

    There's a set on ebay now but they are for the short injectors on later trucks and almost $300 shipped. So far all I've found on other diesel sites are also for newer engines, but they state they can be "tweeked" at the injector end to fit the older engines. I'll venture around a couple junk yards first and see what I can find.
