    Is this to much play in the turbo?

    Can the hy35 be used along with a hx40. Im assuming a hx is whats needed. Whats wrong with running a hx40, reading some forumns they say its lag pig. Also reading some say hx3540 is good upgrade while otheres report only minimal drop in egts. Hard to tell whats what reading forumns. My main thing is to reduce egts im not concerned with making more power

    well, the picece of junk big tex went back to their factory. they were decent to deal with. the similar examples there had a design flaw as well until you step up thethe 10k or 14 k which i wouldve done. but the 70 sr was rightfor thejob and good for smaller tasks andability to get into the tighter places. C&B trailer hitched behind one of the trucks as we spealk :thumgup;

    Heim steering??? Diy upgrade.

    I do like those boots. If i do end up fabbing a steering. Im not gona worry much about a steering stabalizer. Ill put my time into make sure angles are correct. If a stabalizer is needed i guess ill have to get ruffstuff cover and run the stabalizer of it. Lots of time doing this

    Heim steering??? Diy upgrade.

    I orderd hex tube adapters from ruff stuff with the heims. They got here yesterday. Instead of waiting 3 weeks i orderd non hex from somewhere else. Ive got a few thousand miles on the bar. Hasnt come loose yet. I did use a pipe wrench i dont paint stuff lol. Im thinking about doing heims on the sway bar ends now. Truck drives tons better with heim track bar. I also replaced link at the pitman arm. I did because i was fearfull it was about to fall apart. Im probly going to just toss the 08.5+ steering on it maybe moog(242) For right now its improved alot. I was suprised i can grab the bar and adjust axle center by hand. I cut a block to hold heim centerd on ball when i tightened nuts. Just about dont need to hold the bar then because the heim on the other end holds it.

    Your dump trailer would haul my tractor. Update, i finally got my tractor back a couple fridays ago. They found the pressures wasnt set correctly from the factory, set to low. They had to readjust everything. What is the update with your trailer issue muddy?

    how many miles on that one? hard to tell from video but looks like it will be ok for a while but time to plan on rebuild.

    What to do with exhaust

    illegal as it is straight out pointed, between 3 and 11 foot off the ground which i believe is the law. must be pointed slightly back if between those values.

    Transmission

    amazing how freak things like that happen. weve not seen many cummins cranks break either but i've seen two. not common for sure. thankful getting back quick.

    I can't believe someone would do that. That car dealer would be smart to have that fixed or he will probably never sell it.

    Transmission

    Well, i finally got my tractor back last friday from the shop. And three blocks from my house, i loose 2nd gear. Ill be getting my truck back tomorrow. The guy working on it said in the 40 plus years of doing transmissions, he has never seen the part that connects with with 2nd gear break like that.

    Wish I could have caught a picture of your build earlier. I would have suggested welding a hex on the end of the shaft for tightening the jamb nuts. Its surprising how easily they will come loose if you don't crank them down good. If you do use thread-lock without a wrench perch, you'll end up with a pipe wrench on your bar if you ever need to make an adjustment or replace a heim. Not good for powder coating or paint. I finally got my axle set back to center and the wheel clocked straight. She's back to driving like a dream. On center play is damn near as good as any of my other vehicles and much better than stock. When my fleet stops breaking I'll get some more pictures. I'm still not impressed at the factory stabilizer mount at the axle and how it comes out at an angle to the steering bar. On compression or right hand turn it pushes out on the bar and pulls on the left hand turn or extension. I would think having this in line with the crossbar would drastically help in my case. I'm not sure how it affects things with the stock steering setup. From your pictures it looks like it would have the same affect. Here is a link to some FK boots that I found on Summit if you ever run into a scenario that you would need them. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/fkb-rers3?seid=srese1&cm_mmc=pla-google-_-shopping-_-srese1-_-fk-rod-ends&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIio2mkqn72wIVj7jACh0C4AAxEAYYASABEgLLgvD_BwE

  25. I did some research on acumulator spring and it seems that its a common failure. Seeing no reason to pull tranny at this point. Seems to perform like a solid tranny and is working daily now. Though if it was mine id do a few upgrades and up pressure to 120-150 As cheap as he got into the truck i told him it would be a good one to let me loose on a tranny build. If i didnt need my own truck everyday id be toying with dropping mine and doing a triple disc and billett imput aswell as the second gear lock up mod. Maybe t thatlbe winter time project

    Axle is now tits centerd, I built the bar with lh rh thread rod ends. I can easily turn the bar by hand to center truck overaxle. Ive got it within a 1/32 ok maybe a 1/16, Ive got a few hundred miles on it now and it feels like a different truck tracking straight and true down the rd. I was worried i bit off more than i can chew so happy i did this they get like 438 for the adjustable track bar kits. I know have a beefy adjustable bar for both length and angle and what i feel is a better bracket than the bolt on brackets. I will say this was alot of project to pull of in my garage and stilk be driving the truck by noon the next day

    As usual it was much easier talking about doing the track bar. After 3 hours of mutalating the factory track bracket allmost setting the truck on fire. I was staeting ti regret my decision to go ahead and do. At 4am this morning things were looking up and my doubts were aickly fading. Today bracket is burned on boxed and im confident itl be plenty beefy, its 1/4" plate. The truckdrives so much tighter. Im 1/4" from having axle centerd. Steering improved like 200% ride did some but its a 1 ton with 2k on its back. Ill do some more measuring and get it centerd better but for now im off to a wedding. I ran these up hill to make sure to get good penetration I almost didnt box it due to have to build the through coil support. Glad i did i think this adds a ton of beef to the mount. Ing Up next is steering
