  1. 6.4L Ford owner complained about low power

    Yeah, but you've got a two post in your shop. Been there seen that... Now your cheating.
  2. U Joints

    At least I could just use that ball joint press to just press the bearing caps off and change it fast. Much better than pulling the entire driveline and wrestling it in the shop on the floor. Always looking for easier way to do things and this was one of them.
  3. 6.4L Ford owner complained about low power

    Really poor design that you are required to have a 2 post lift to work on your Ford truck. Majority of the stuff you got to do on these truck requires the cab to be lifted off the frame to access different parts of the engine. Even on the older 7.3L Fords you have things like the rail plugs for high pressure oil you need to replace the o-rings but have to lift the cab off to replace the rear two plug o-rings. I still love the old 7.3L Fords compared to the 6.0L and the 6.4L... (Yuk)
  4. U Joints

    Last night on the way home I start detecting a vibration occurring when the driveline went slack. Kind of knew at that point the rear driveshaft was going to be the trouble maker. I found a way to change the rear most u-joint in under 1 hour without pulling the driveshaft. I grabbed the Harbor Freight Ball Joint Press and began to press the old joint out. Finish the job and rolled it out of the shop in under 1 hour.
  5. I wonder why? https://i.imgur.com/lGSVb7M.mp4 As you can see the turbo is ruined. I'm not sure if the video is working but the shaft is broken on the turbine. Then all the flex points of the exhaust are leaking drive pressure. So less performance. Ford 6.4L really took a beating and lost this round for sure.
  6. Finally found one!

    The elusive 710 cap. Boy they are tough to find for blonde women.
  7. Geez... Spendy bushings

    Ford is sure proud of there parts WOW!
  8. Don't look like Chevy is doing so great either with a 2018 Chevy engine wiping out a piston at 110 miles. Those pistons don't even have carbon on them let alone broke in.
  9. Hey @MUDDY Do me a favor and get some photos possibly for the website maybe we'll change up the background again if there is something good.
  10. It appears that even the Ford 6.7L engines are still having issues with people looking to tune wildly and delete all the smog equipment. Then the tunes appear to have some seriously high timing that is capable of bending connecting rods and destroying an engine rather quickly. I kind of wonder if the owner in this truck even had a set of gauges was watching EGTs or boost numbers. Even what I've learned on tuning for the Cummins you can create negative torque and not even really feel it but you can measure it in engine load numbers. Still surprises me how many people blindly just delete grab a tuner and crank them up on max power and tow with their foot on the floor.
  11. This is only comedy video and for entertainment.
  12. It's a oil change not a head gasket job...

    Front wheel drive little 4 cylinder. Someone needs to beat the trash out of the designers then take them out to the shop and tell them to change oil in this POS vehicle.
  13. Redneck towing

    I think that will hold my 31 foot Jayco.
  14. Fuel pressure gauge

    This is why only the fuel gauge sensor or the gauge itself needs to be installed away from the VP44 best at the factory filter. The filter can acts like a suppressor and reduces the hammer effect of the VP44 is creating. This is why I remote mounted my sensor on the fender so by the time the fuel pulse goes through the sintered snubber and travels another 6 feet fo 1/8" tubing the pulse is basically near dead. This is why the rash of a pressure sensor failure for Quadzilla and Edge Juice are so commonplace because they do not provide a snubber and tell you to hook it up right at the inlet of the VP44 which is the WORSE place to measure fuel pressure.

    Very well said! Bravo!
