Getting better

Recommended Posts

Well after weeks of playing with my DVOM meter and taking readings from my glow plugs, I think I have found the optimum timing and fuel delivery setting on the 7.3 IDI. I went to Blackfoot for the weekend and averaged 19.7666 miles per gallon. Plenty of power, very light black smoke with my foot buried in it. I guess it is running pretty efficient. Now for a new turbo setup and I will be happy as a pig is sh%t. :thumbup:

My first diesel was a 92 IDI and it ran good I never checked the mileage on it. It smoked pretty heavy when the go pedal was on the wood. It's cool you have been tuning your truck sounds like you got it dialed in!:thumbup:

I had a 2000 Dodge Cummins, Loved it, had it bombed, just didn't love the payments. I would get 19-20 with it if I could keep my foot out of it. Miss hte truck , just not the payments. Thats why I went to older truck. Now when I ge tthe 79 F250 done with a cummins in it, I'll really be happy. Nice to see diesel is less than gas again too.
