okay hoply this is the last of the major issues with the car for a while.
anyways after replaceing two rocker arm bridges and jb welding a washer on my starter to acted an ear. she started and ran like a dream to today. very quite very smooth (and i though she ran smooth befor ;) ) still gut less (i can get ot 50 in a 1/4 mile with ym foot in it)

anyways the permtex gasket make i used was the wrong one....so i have a rear vauvle cover leaking (YUCK) but after i fix that im rocken hard core in my super gutless ball or amzingness

Awesome! Congrats.

What's the mpg on the diesel? Is it up to $5-something a gallon where you are too?

Hell, with that type of gas mileage, even with a buck difference you're winning out. :D

if you've having such problem going "fast" with your diesel i might sugget you check the injection pump timing! this is one of the symptoms of a bad timing! Trust me i'm a diesel mechanic!
