Hello all.
Today I was sniffing around under the truck for some mantainance and notice that of 4 screws that hold the starter and attach it to the flybar, 1 was lost and another one was on the way of loosing... So next time when you are under your truck throw an eye on it...

I have not received my truck yet, still waiting for EUC to finalize. But it looks like these engines vibrate a lot. Partially due to drive shaft imbalance, partially due to engine borne vibration, partially due to tire imbalance, and finally, flying through the air more than it should:jumpin:
It looks like Locktite is your friend. That and a regular touch of every nut and bolt on this beast. While we are playing with our loose nuts and bolts might as well bring the lube gun and play with the zerk fittings too. Wouldn't want them to feel left out.:hammer:

Loose bolts all over are pretty common. Some of it may be due to vibration. Alot of it is due to bad practices by the previous owner though.
