Re: Back online, but not fully restored

Thanks for all the work. I’d been away for awhile - new job busyness, and I’d gotten the truck to a real good place. Was a bit shocked when site was down. Thanks again.

Re: Diagnostic Help?

As I mentioned earlier it felt like a “miss” in a cylinder. While I’m usually super careful when making adjustments such as valve lash by double and sometimes triple checking measurement and torques I thought maybe I’d screwed up and not properly tightened a rocker so that it may have loosened. I wi...

Re: Diagnostic Help?

The only thing I can think of is when I removed the IP for rebuild and was working on the front end I mistakenly (not thinking!) turned the crankshaft while attempting to remove the harmonic balancer and pulley. It barely moved the cam a bit when I realized what I had done. I thought that since ever...

What could have caused this? And where does one find push rods?

Re: Diagnostic Help?

Halden -

With 2 in series wouldn't the first one in line still plug up the same as if it were solo?

Re: Diagnostic Help?

Paul -
That's what I thought. They are the same size with the same water separator mechanism on the bottom but the top threading is on the rim of the Duramax rather than the center nipple.

Re: Diagnostic Help?

Yes. I was thinking from reading the posts that you could get a 10 micron filter for the duramax head. Now I'm wondering if I was mistaken. Maybe do a rebuild on the original. We'll see.

Funny Illustration in Manual.

Since I got a nice copy of the ‘86 shop manual I’ve been surprised at the quantity of mis-labeled diagrams and illustrations. I thought this one was rather humorous. From glow plug section in diesel electric.

Re: Diagnostic Help?

Just ordered a Duramax head. Amazon had one same day delivery. I'll put the OEM spec'ed filter on I just got. Was thinking of pulling glow plugs to see if there is any telltale variation in cylinders.

Re: Diagnostic Help?

Again - there is no sign of a possible head gasket failure other than performance. No mixed fluids, no blow by of any kind, oil pressure and temp are normal.

Re: Diagnostic Help?

Well - It’s not the timing. Timing was spot on. I noticed a small amount of air in fuel lines (they are clear). Tried changing the filter and doubling fuel line clamps(screw type). After driving there was significant air in line. 2 to 2 1/2 inch bubble at filter output. The primer pump has been “iff...

Re: Diagnostic Help?

I’ve got a factory manual. That’s my thinking(a skipped tooth). When I replaced the belt I let it ride on the tensioner spring and the tightened it a bit tighter before torquing the tensioner pulls bolt. I torqued everything to specs. I did feel insecure without a tension gauge but thought it was ti...

Re: Diagnostic Help?

BTW - When the pump was rebuilt I replaced the timing belt and all front end seals as well as manifold gasket. I was super careful aligning and static timing as seen in the nice performance until this issue. Didn't have a tension gauge when installing the belt but felt I had it on the "tight&qu...
