    Brake reservoir installed, touched up the paint in the doorjambs, new battery terminals & all the new reflectors are on. Next weekend I'm installing another hood, hood lift kit & new driver's side door...

    The wife changed the oil and filters (yes the wife did). She also lubed all the zerks she could find. Installed a new diesel tank cap as the original was rusting on the inside.

    Nope just the stock canister filters. We are having a problem though. Been searching all morning. Oil pressure is 90psi now. Right filters, right oil. And gauge was working just fine prior to the change.

    Yea, I did see there are gauges that go to 60 and 120. And you have to have properly matched gauges and senders (60/60 or 120/120). I also saw everyone says pressure will go up after an oil change. But it's 90 psi at idle right after start up. I don't believe the gauge or sender would fail. Filters seem to match what came out and were model numbers that crossed over, and what's listed on here as ones that could be used.

    The old oil was pretty thin compared to the new oil. So, yea would expect it to be slightly higher. But 90 seems to be a bit high considering it was running about 45 or so with the old oil. It might be ok, just the new oil. But just wanting to make sure. Seen lots of posts about just t-ing in a pressure gauge right on the motor as a double check.

    My wife and I are both helicopter Crew Chiefs. Changing oil, replacing filters, greasing zerk fittings, changing rotor blades, engines, gearboxes... finding a wife who’s as qualified as she is, is nye on impossible. Count your blessings for finding someone who’s got the green disease and is willing to maintain your prizes.

    Unfortunately, I was away when the truck was dropped off. She claimed it as HERS! She want's to drive it, which she does. She needs to know how to maintain it.

    Put everything back together after Waterloo power steering install and some sheet metal repairs and painting. All I can say is...WOW. It drives like a completely different truck. The biggest differences I noticed are
    the truck feels "smaller"; probably because it steers so effortlessly
    the truck is much more stable on bad road surfaces. The front tires bouncing around no longer upset the steering.
    the steering wheel is in a different position. The shaft is shorter, I think, so the wheel sits closer to the dash and a little lower. Ok with me.
    the truck is so easy to run through corners. No worries that it might be difficult to spin the wheel back fast enough to "catch" the truck.

    So much fun!

    I’d double check it, but my truck is TIGHT with 6400 on a LEAD rebuilt engine and with old oil or new it’ll hold 89 psi cold idle, and maintain 60 on road hot, 32 idle hot
