Re: Diagnostic Help?

I went the duramax route for a while

Found out filtration was too small....can't remember actual number

Eventually clogged.....had to remove....cobbled together an old OEM from parts.....no further problems

Just my 2 cents

Get substitute primer filter assembly

Re: Truck won't rev

Will your fuel filter/water separator pump up and hold prime

If not.....there is a air leak. In the suction side of the fuel system

Re: Broken timing belt

When you remove the water pump, be sure to keep tract of where the bolts came from.....they are different lengths...so if you mix them up chances are you will bottom out in a hole and not be able to torque down properly...thus a leak Be sure to use some sort of ...good.....sealant on the water pump ...

Re: Broken timing belt

The fan has a fluid coupling set up......temp activated sort of......it slips when demand is low ....as temp and demand increases it locks up to provide max cooling and fan flow

You can hear it engage ....and then you will see your temp gage decrease

Re: Broken timing belt

I had similar problem ...installed 180 degree thermo from GM 350 cu inch engine

ALSO PUT springs in all radiator hoses to prevent collapsing hoses

No more problems ...runs in center of gage now...if extended climb .....the fan engages at the top of gage marking
