    Awesome glad to hear it's back on the road again! Congradulations on getting it all up and going... hopefully you'll be able to fix the injector lines issue easily.

    Glad to hear you have it back together and running again Teddy! That clutch looked like it should do the job real well! Those injector lines that are leaking, loosen both ends and make sure that the centers of the line ends line up exactly square with the tops of the injectors. Bend the lines a little if they don't line up. If they still leak after doing this, take the lines all the way off and inspect the area where the line swells or is ferrelled. I have had a number of lines crack in this area on the V8's and V6's (usually if you put the lines on and take them off a lot of times for various reasons, like compression testing, changing injector opening rates, etc). I hope to have some updated pictures of my diesel in the next couple of days. I am not as close to having it running as I would like but have been making some progress.
    Bruce.

    thanks bruce. looking froward to your picts. i try the bending trick as i inspected the lines out side of the car and put them on out side of the car as well to get the the "nubs" centered like you said.

    Default Update: 3/29/11

    removed the custom made injection line the didn't work today and took it back for some tweaks.... hoping a get of 45 degree cone ends will work. i brought the guy a old injector and told him to mess with each end tell it seated perfectly....and to use some mechanist die to make sure it totally sealed. well find out most likily tuesday next week if it worked....i hope so because this motor has some nice low end power

    well cracked head off the shop today to find and maybe fix the phantom head bolt leak. head gasket did not have traces of any coolant leak (like i though) because the head bolt comes out dry every time and telfon tape is used to seal the treads. based on that data the crack has to be at the top of head bolt hole somewhere.
