    Todays chore was 14s off and 16s on my 923A2.

    Now ive got 1400s mounted up in the bed of my truck and headed to put tires on a truck to drag home tomorrow that is on a bunch of flats. Nice 20 hour day tomorrow to Montgomery and back.

    Also ran the grease gun on my truck and removed the rear cab bolts and installed some taller bushings and reinstalled that so far.

    Yesterday, I drained off 3 gallons of coolant from the bottom of the radiator.

    I was curious to see how much sludge and sediment was in the radiator. I also just wanted to recharge the system with some fresh SCA. This also gave me the opportunity to replace the leaking surge tank hose. There's a lot of sediment in the system. It took 2 full gallons before I started seeing clearer coolant drain out. I used a pre-mix that did not require any water, and was pre-charged with SCA.

    This is just temporary until my shipment of new belts arrives. I'll replace all the hoses, belts and coolants as soon as I gather the remaining parts and whenever the weather cooperates. I won't really be driving the truck anywhere until that happens.

    I don't want the sediment restricting the flow in the cooling system so some sort of chemical flush is indicated but I don't want to use anything that might harm the cylinder sleeve seals. Any recommendations from the Cummins 250 crowd?

    As in dish soap? I can see it being harmless to sleeve seals but does it actually get the gunk out?

    In the early days (2000), my unit had this MOC in a box. Originally, it was designed to be towed using artillery mobilizer wheels on each end. Unfortunately, it was too heavy and the mobilizer hydraulics often failed and in a very unsafe manner, so we put the MOC on a low boy and just kept it there. We towed it with an old, International single cab tractor. Man, that thing was feeble.

    I *FINALLY* got the chance to see about changing out my shocks for the Gaberials. NO GO!!!!!!!!! The stud mount steps up in size, AND the "stroke" length is wrong, with full compression being the biggest issue, as in NOT enough of it. Crap. I also took a drive on the dark side today.....
