    Starting problems

    OK, thanks! I know the ones you are talking about. I was wondering if there were more I wasn't thinking of.

    Diesel Rat Rod (hopefully build thread)

    The air shut off is fully functional and the speedometer is now working. Put the first 6.8 miles on the odometer today driving down to County line park and back. It felt really good and cruised fine. I need to lower the rear view mirror so I can see what is behind me. I like to see.
  6. I think some one installed it for you.

    Thinking about a TDi again...

    Appears to be in pretty good shape. I certainly think it is worth the asking price. The question would be if they have any maintenance records. If they have nothing, plan on getting a timing belt done on it as soon as you buy it, if you buy it. Certainly worth taking a look at.

    Low voltage on the gauge

    I have always just grabbed one from Orielly's. I have little faith in the quality of any of those places now so I just go for the place that is the closest. FWIW I am still on the original in my truck. (knock on wood).

    Probably time for a new alternator. Is it original? At least it gave you a warning.....
  10. Correction, Bill Castle. Turns out he is my neighbor. He live on top of the hill right above my house. Anyhow, I dropped off the block with him today. He is convinced that the block will have to go .020 over. He doesn’t think honing will clean up #2. We will see. Bill is also ordering the rebuild kit for me. Here is the block on the way to the shop. Several people (that I trust) have told me that Castle machineknows what they are doing with these blocks. I hope it works out well. Would be nice to have a local Guy I can trust. Seemed nice enough and and we talked for about an hour.

    I'm ordering a new 3500

    Shop flooring being 4" is fine. Mine a is 4" also but I had much thicker areas dug in where the lift sits. Of course I knew where it was going. Assembly and install isn't bad at all. I have done 2 now.

    I already have the pull cable. It would be a lot easier just to throw the cable in. It is red and will be labeled “emergency”.

    I modified the blast gate to an air shut off. Still need to figure out how I will attach the cable to it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
