Re: Weird oil leak

They are called Welch plugs. They drop in, then you deform them, use something fairly sizable and flat and hit it with a hammer. To remove them stab a small screwdriver in and take them out. They can't be knocked in sideways. There is a lip on the block that they sit against. There shouldn't be any ...

Re: Weird oil leak

On my rebuild I put red loctite on the oil gallery and cam shaft plugs. They will pretty never come out until you really want them to.

Re: Limiting RPM...

Sounds about right for the way you drive! :D I never thought I babied my truck until I saw your 3000+ RPM shift points :shock: Typically I am pretty conservative, but from time to time I get on it. A NA engine will never outpace the governor. Even my gas vehicles I'm not afraid to hit the danger zo...

Re: Limiting RPM...

My solution would be to just have the radio on full blast. Outta sight, outta mind... (Kidding!)

Re: Engine oil cooler thermostat question

I have tried and tried to source one. Jerry Lemond has as well... I was able to find one that fit... But it was for LPG engines. The kick was the thermostat closed at 180 in order to prevent vapor lock in the fuel system.

Re: Losing Prime

Be aware that the tier 4 engine filters get down to something like 2 microns on the filters. Unless it's just the water separator and filter unit then you'll be okay that's something like the standard 10 microns

Re: turbo timer

Personally I wouldn't bother with a turbo timer. I don't know of any big rigs, medium duty, or any automotive applications from the factory that have a turbo timer. Not even ag applications, on a big John Deere and that stuff runs hard all day long. Now on those old turbo props would need something ...

Re: Questions & Answers about tuning our C223 diesel engines

Ah, that makes sense actually. It's the same effect as rotating the pulley forward or back a tooth, but you can get much finer adjustment than a whole tooth which is maybe too much in many cases, by just rotating the pump body instead. Adjusting the timing via the belt will not work. It will advanc...

Re: Questions & Answers about tuning our C223 diesel engines

I hope it's okay to bump old threads instead of starting new ones. I'm curious about "moving the injection pump". Are you actually shifting the entire unit somehow. Or is "moving" kind of a misnomer? And it's really just about adjusting the various fuel screws? Is there a video ...

Re: Hello from Northwest Washington State

Must be a different truck. I don't think anything about it would qualify as luxury, even by 1984 standards. This one doesn't have a center console, instead it has a third "seat" - or at least a third seatbelt. The middle person has to be okay with the driver shifting in between their legs...

It needs to be lubricated by the engine oil.

Re: Hello from Northwest Washington State

Maybe - what does LS stand for? I bought the truck in Ferndale in mid-December. There was another one for sale in town at about the same time that I had hoped to look at, but by the time I replied to that ad (about 3 hours after posting), it was already gone... I am pretty sure LS stands for Luxury...

Re: Replacement engine

Check the rocker shaft oil feed line at the back of the head. Some of them crack and leak, and when they do it's a pretty aggressive leak. Exactly! Jerry Lemond told me once that an oil line leak at the back of the head can run down and sometimes be mistaken for a main seal leak. The other end of t...
