Re: Quickest Cars on Tiresmoke

BP, I left like a grandmother driving to church (no doubt) and it was still gettin' it! I'm also under driving the blower quite a bit. There's a LOT more in it for sure. Baby steps. ;-)

Re: Quickest Cars on Tiresmoke

Took the digger to 42 this weekend for the Rock-n-Race. Put down my best pass yet on a super easy launch I went 8.53@163mph. Pretty happy considering how easy I left. To Be Continued....

UNIVERSAL FUEL HOSE!!!!!

I needed a TIGHT 90 degree fuel line the other day for my diesel. Cummins wanted a RIDICULOUS amount for what should have been a 2 dollar hose. Of course I found THIS "universal molded hose" after the fact. Later I thought of ALL the times this would have come in handy! BTW they offer it i...

Re: DIY ultasonic cleaner

Would have been WAY cooler if he would have done a comparison WITH and WITHOUT the agitation. Not exactly an ultrasonic cleaner, but still a cool idea.

Re: 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Turbo Diesel

I wrote something up and posted it on one of the diesel forums. I am a NEWBIE there so we'll see how it is received. In any event I tried! :-)

Re: 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Turbo Diesel

As it stands right now - I can go out and depress the manual primer and get 1/2 full pressure with a single depression. That's GOOD!!!! With that I KNOW it will fire right up so long as the Fuel Valve is open. This is part of my first "complaint" no where does anyone really explain that. M...

Re: 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Turbo Diesel

GMJohnny, Some guys do exactly that, but in the same breath some guys warn not to because the lift pump is super reliable. I don't know either to be more or less true as I am a newbie. This motor DOES have a Fuel Heater which after overwhelming suggestions I deleted (easily reinstalled should I ever...

Re: 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Turbo Diesel

MostMint, Yep There's actually a couple good youtube vids on the sending unit. It IS goofy. I see that exploration in my future as I've seen the gas gage read goofy every once in a while - so I'll be in there for that for sure. I can check out the rest at that time....waiting for warm weather on that!

Re: 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Turbo Diesel

MostMint, That's exactly my "complaint" - with all the experts out there I'm very surprised someone doesn't outline the entire fuel system. I have found bits and pieces, but that's all. As for the return - I believe it runs back to the tank. If I experience any more air issues -I will drop...

Re: 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Turbo Diesel

So while there's a TON of articles written on this motor I think for me I was a little bit disappointed in them. I say that because there wasn't a ton of theory just a lot of try this or try that. After fiddling with this for a a while now what would have helped me a TON would to have had MORE theor...

Re: 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Turbo Diesel

So after another couple days of working perfect I had another Hard Start. This time I hadn't pre-checked the system pressure so I had to wait a day to see if it would repeat and sure enough it did it again - BUT ! THAT makes no sense - or should I say it says the problem NOW is not fuel pressure (or...

Re: 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Turbo Diesel

Stan, Myself and Jill went to Byron, Illinois with that truck pulling my trailer - you couldn't tell not even a little.

I'm getting a little excited again - looks like I might have fixed my hard start problem....cautiously optimistic.

Re: 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Turbo Diesel

BP, Yep that was it. It was one of Stan's old trucks (he had a couple). As you might remember Stan was a man of many talents - one of which was he knew diesels like the back of his hand. He's probably chuckling right now over my follies. It's pretty solid, Stan went down south to get it. I've done a...

1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Turbo Diesel

So my latest FUN has been revolving around tinkering on my 12V Cummins Diesel. Had it a year or so haven't really driven it much as there wasn't much call with a lot of the races shut down. I think it could probably use a new set of rings as it smokes a little, but honestly I don't see me doing that...
