    Antifreeze smell

    book time on the oil cooler? 1.3hours. im sure that must include time to buy parts, run to the store for beer etc, cause i know that shouldnt be hard to crush.

    do you use a fuel heater?

    thats one of the reasons ive allways run fass/airdogs thru the factory filter housings. wif light, fuel heater, and redundant filtration/waterseperation. yes, theres a SLIGHTloss in flow, but for 99% of people they will never know it. with common rail injection pressueres, theres no such thing as to much filtration. and even small traces of water destroy injectors. besides, i think thats a cleaner install that way ( unless you do a filter delete)

    6.0 injectors

    factory fords are the only way to go if your not going big.

    Delivery Valve Socket

    so i followed your advice... 30 second google search and found that he snagged the pic off a companys web site... http://www.attitudeperformanceproducts.com/pdf/1006-APP-Tech-Sheet.pdf the pic happens to be a fully custom dv holder.... i also spent another 30 seconds trying to find inexpensive dv holders to replace the ones that you will most likely screw up trying to machine... they go about $50ea before shipping.. i guess before going off on us, you might want to try doing some research on your own... for those wanting to see the thread he is referiing to but dont desire searching http://www.cumminsforum.com/forum/94-98-performance-parts-discussion/1775681-delivery-valves.html#post20381193

    Delivery Valve Socket

    just my 2 cents. tools are an investment. buy quality once. be proud knowing you have the ability to do the job right. learn to do things right the first time. once you are proficient in doing things properly then you will get the skill set to know where you can safely cut a corner here and there. give respect to earn respect. for some of us, our tools are our livelihood. i dont typicly loan my stuff out to many people. and seeing you spout off like you did, seals the deal as far as your chances. it shows disrespect. if you arnt going to show respect to people you are asking help from, how are we to expect you to respect our property? take this as a life lesson. that said. with out doing any actual measurements, theres a few things to consider, as Ben pointed out, theres alot more pressure involved than simple opening pressure. think about how much wall thickness you are removing. if i recall a 19mm hex is about 21mm across the points, so thats atleast 2mm of wall thickness you are removing. now you have un eaqual wall thickness so as it encounters pressure spikes it will flex un evenly eventually causing fatigue. now take into account work hardening causing embrittlement. last but not least, what happens if you screw up even one of them? delivery valve holders arnt just your average parts store item, what is a replacement going to cost you? hmm.... more than the correct socket...
